Just For Laughs, Yanks Now Lead The Rays

on

Just For Laughs LogoBronx, NY – After five innings of matinee baseball here at Yankee Stadium, the Bronx Bombers trail their American League East rivals, the Tampa Bay Rays.

Down 3-2, the Yankees have reliever Dellin Betances is now pitching in the sixth inning.

In the fourth inning, the Yankees, down 2-1, tied the game at 2-2 when catcher Gary Sanchez blasted his 16th home run of the season. Just as it appeared momentum was swinging in New York’s favor, the Rays reclaimed their lead when Steven Souza Jr. hit his 22nd home run of the season. While this is game is being played out, I wanted to talk give a shout out to the fine folks from Just for Laughs.

Before I get there, Yankees INF Chase Headley who entered the game as a pinch hitter just hit a two-run home run to give the Bronx Bombers a 4-3 lead in the bottom of the sixth inning. For Headley, this was his 5th homer of the season.

Returning back to our scheduled shout out…
