For the second night in a row, the Oakland A’s scored 1 run. Not enough. 5 of the runs tonight were courtesy of Alex’s big bat. One grand slam and one single home run. The inning where the first 5 runs were scored, the A’s pitcher loaded up the bases twice. Yankees scored each time. First with one, then the second time Alex hit a grand slam. Then in the 6th inning Alex hit another home run. CC pitched 7 solid innings, giving up just the one run. Then D-Rob came in and kept the lead and the win for CC, his 7th straight and he is 11-3 for the season.
These two home runs put Alex at 597, 14 for the season, 67 RBI and his 21st Grand Slam. The only player with more is Lou Gehrig.
