As requested the Score Truck screeched into the Stadium tonight before the Yanks take off for the west coast.
Curtis Granderson hit a home run in the first and Alex Rodriguez followed a couple of batters later with a two-run dinger. And Rodriguez was pumped.
He was even more amped when he crushed a solo shot to center field his next time up (and cursed himself when he grounded out with the bases loaded in his third at bat). The Yanks scrapped together a few more runs on a night when the Royals pitched, well, like the same old Royals.
Andy Pettitte was crisp, Mark Teixeira and Derek Jeter turned a thrilling double play, as the Yanks won a laugher, 8-3.
And Bronx Banter was full of heppy kets.
