"Now, what is this site about, how Joe Torre ruined pitchers' arms? Is that it?"

Cano had a busy eighth inning

Yahoo! Sports had some fun with this afternoon's game. Apparently the Yankees pushed across 26 runs and recorded 30 hits through 7 1/2 innings.

Let's take a look at what Robinson Cano did in the eighth inning:

In the Yankees' 16-run sixth inning, Cano hit two home runs and also hit an RBI single that scored himself.

That's incredible! Maybe he's not having such a bad year after all. It's also pretty funny that LaTroy Hawkins was listed as the pitcher for all of this as well.

The box score also has Johnny Damon going 6-for-10, Derek Jeter 4-for-8 with four RBI and Alex Rodriguez 4-for-8 with six RBI. Melky Cabrera went 0-for-10. That'll kill the batting average.

In reality, the Yankees won 13-0 and swept the Houston Astros. However, we're still waiting on Chien-Ming Wang's injury update. When I hear anything, I'll pass it along.

By the way, Yahoo! said that the two home runs hit last night (Rodriguez and Carlos Lee) were of the inside the park variety. Not a good weekend for them.

Well done, Yahoo!
