Yankees bring the rain in wet win

The Yankees won the second game of their four-game series with the Royals on Friday night, and they did it in spite of the rain.

After an 85-minute rain delay, the Yankees completed all nine innings in a 7-1 pounding of the Royals. Instead of Alex Rodriguez hitting his historic 600th home run, fans witnessed Jorge Posada’s 1,000th RBI in the first inning.

Best of All: A-Rod didn’t get the homer, but he’s not slumping. He had two hits, scored once and walked.

Robinson Cano added three RBIs and two hits to his MVP season.

Worst of All: Just as A.J. Burnett was finding a rhythm, the rain shortened his start to five innings. It was good enough for the win, but it would’ve been nice to see him go eight shutout innings.

Coming Up: The Yankees have two day games scheduled for the weekend, and in all likelihood, I will be attending both! Today, I have outrageously good seats (check back later to find out how good) and I’ll be at the stadium Sunday just in case A-Rod hasn’t hit No. 600.

Check out the blog during the game for my live updates and after the game for photos, videos and more!
