New York Yankees-Kansas City Royals: Blame It on the Rain!

Micheal Robinson@nyyrobinsonSenior Analyst IIApril 10, 2008

Kansas City, MO - The Yankees offense couldn't get anything going on a rainy night in Kansas City on Wednesday, as they drop their second in a row to the Royals, 4-0.

The Yankees had no runs on seven hits and every time they would get a runner on base, the Royals would get out of it.

Ian Kennedy came in the game from the bullpen in the sixth and finished out the rest of the game, giving up two runs.  But the damage had already been done. 

A towering centerfield home run off of Kyle Farnsworth from the bat of John Buck in the fifth put the Royals ahead for good. 

The Yankees used Ian Kennedy in relief instead of starting due to the threat of a rain delay that never happened.  The Yankee pitching wasn't that bad, but the hitting was.

The Yankees continue to be one of the worst hitting teams in the majors right now to the array of most Yankee fans.  However, the Yankees are famous for starting out slow lately, but charging back full force in the second half.

Both Andy Pettitte and John Bale will be making their second starts of the season on Thursday night, both with about the same numbers in their first start.

There is threat of a lot of rain in the area on Thursday night, so the chance of getting the game in is pretty slim, but at this point the Yankees will take no game at all over a loss.
