Cano, Johnson leave early with injuries in blowout

One of the core four is still healthy, but it seems the Sports Illustrated cover curse has spread to the rest of the Yankees. Robinson Cano and Nick Johnson exited early in the Yankees’ romp of the Red Sox (currently leading 9-2 in the sixth).

Cano was hit in the left knee by Josh Beckett in the sixth inning, in which the Yankees rallied for six runs to chase Beckett. Cano stayed in the game initially, but after two pitches to the next batter he took himself out of the game.

Johnson was pinch-hit for in the fifth by Marcus Thames unexpectedly. It was later announced Johnson left with a sore right wrist. He must’ve hurt it on a swing, because he wasn’t playing the field.

No recap tonight: I have to do one final project for my sophomore year that determines whether I pass or fail the course. You can follow the gamecast here.
