Voit's 7th inning blast propels Yankees to 7-3 win in Game 1 vs. KC

Image
After being rained out on Friday evening, the Yankees and Royals took to the field on Saturday afternoon for the first game of a day-night doubleheader to begin their three-game series.  The Yankees came in hot, riding a five-game winning streak, and sent JA Happ to the mound.  He was opposed by righty Jakob Junis of the Royals.  A seventh inning monster two-run home run off the bat of Luke Voit proved to be the difference in this one as the Yankees would go on to win by a score of 7-3.


The Yankees’ offense started off hot in this one, plating two runs off Junis in the first inning.  Aaron Hicks drew a walk to start things off, before Voit singled to left to put first and second on with no outs.  Although both Gary Sanchez and Gleyber Torres would strike out on sliders low and away well off the plate, the inning still proved fruitful when Clint Frazier ripped a two-run double down the right field line that scored both Hicks & Voit.

The Yankees currently sit at 32-17 and are on top of the AL East. Despite this, the team has some areas it could improve in; however, Brian Cashman will not have to dig into his pocketbook or pick up the phone to get all the help this team needs. The team is expecting reinforcements off of the IL on both sides of the ball over the course of the next two months, which should give this already successful team an even bigger boost. However, this does not mean the Yankees will be silent on the trade market as more injuries could amount, setbacks can happen, and other teams will acquire big pieces resulting in the Yankees not wanting to fall behind. The Yankees are coming off two consecutive successful regular seasons followed by postseason failures, and still have the minor league talent to swing some game-changing deals. With this in mind, here are six early candidates to keep an eye on as the major league season transitions into the summer months.
