Timely hitting and solid relief pitching lead Yankees to 4-3 win over Toronto

In what seemed like more than a regular April game, the Blue Jays traveled to the Bronx for another four-game set between the two. Jays’ ace Aaron Sanchez took the bump for the visitors, and CC Sabathia made his first start in 13 days, returning from nagging hip soreness. 6.5 games behind the Red Sox, the Yankees got a must needed win against the second-place team in the AL East. It was not pretty and no one on the Yanks tallied more than one hit, but they did enough to pull out a 4-3 win over Toronto.

All Star Ballot Update #VoteYankees

This morning, Tuesday, May 26, the first All-Star ballot update was released. To the dismay of Yankee fans like myself, no Yankee would be voted on if the voting ended today. As a matter of fact, no Yankee position player is even in second at their particular position. The top voted players include Miguel Cabrera (1B), Jose Altuve (2B), Nelson Cruz (DH) and 5 (FIVE) Kansas City Royals players which are Salvador Perez (C), Mike Moustakas (3B), Alcides Escobar (SS), Lorenzo Cain (OF) and Alex Gordon (OF). The final man making up the 9 man roster is Mike Trout (OF) who is second in votes amongst outfielders.

Interestingly enough, Salvador Perez is the top overall vote getting with 1,447,753. A few Yankees in the mix at their position include Mark Teixeira who is third amongst first basemen, Brian McCann who is a close fourth in the catching race, Alex Rodriguez who is third in the DH category and Jacoby Ellsbury, Brett Gardner and Carlos Beltran who sit seventh, twelfth and thirteenth, respectively.

Remember to log on and vote all 35 times for Yankees! The full ballot is posted below for your convenience. Have a nice night and go Yankees!
