Offense was cheap on Friday night, as the the Yankees and the Royals combined for seventeen runs. For the Yankees, the story of the night was Lyle Overbay, who collected four hits – including a two-run home run – and five RBI’s.  Nelson and Ichiro both added two RBI’s, with Cano and Gardner accounting for the other two.

The Yankees picked the right night to explode offensively, as Phil Hughes struggled through his 5.2 innings.  He allowed all six of the Royals’ runs, with half of those coming on one swing that cut the Yankees’ early lead to 4-3.  Still, a five-run fifth inning for the Yanks secured Hughes the win.

Shawn Kelly worked 2.1 scoreless innings in relief of Hughes – striking out six in the process.

The win was number 500 for manager Joe Girardi.  He’s the seventh Yankee manager to reach that number.

On Saturday, the series continues at 7:10.  Coverage on 104.5 The Team begins at 6:30 with Yankees Pre-game.
