In front of the 8-Ball

by Bill Chuck on July 12, 2013

Derek Jeter returned (at least for one game), Andy Pettitte pitched, and the Yankees defeated the Royals, 8-4.

It was like the old days in the Bronx when the Bombers used to score many runs on a regular basis.

The back-to-back eight runs by the New Yorkers was the first time they’ve scored eight or more runs in consecutive home games since September 22-24, 2011 season against Tampa Bay and Boston.

The Yankees have scored eight runs in a game nine times this season.
