Royals Hold On To Defeat Yankees

The Royals led 6-0 in the 4th inning, and held on to defeat the Yankees 7-4 in New York. The Yankees had rallies of some note going in nearly every inning after the third, but failed to do enough to overtake the Royals.

Stars of the game:

  • Robinson Tejeda: Pitched two scoreless innings at an absolutely crucial juncture of the game.
  • Scott Pods-Kendall: Combined to go 4-9 with three runs scored.
  • Yuni: Went 0-4 but made a nice play to start a critical double play.
