Week 10 Yankees Player of the Week
The Yankees continued their outstanding play by completing their first undefeated week of the season. The Yankees went 6-0 behind their pitching and hitting. Russell Martin started it off on Sunday with a GW HR. Alex Rodriguez continued it with a huge grand slam on Wednesday that led the Yankees to a win that nobody saw coming. Also Curtis Granderson hit a HR in the 6th inning on Wednesday to put the Yankees ahead for good and Mark Texiera had a game winning double in the 14th inning yesterday. When you combine this clutch hitting with the pitching the Yankees have been getting from the rotation and the bullpen they are extremely tough to beat. The Yankees even won a game yesterday in which they didn’t hit a HR for the first time all year. It is also incredible that the Yankees have only not hit a HR in 13 games this season if you look at that stat the other way. The nominees for Week 10 Yankees Player of the Week are Curtis Granderson, Ivan Nova, Nick Swisher, and Rafael Soriano.
The Case For Granderson: .308, 2 HR, 5 RBI, 4 runs scored
The Case For Nova: W, 7.0 inn, 0 runs, 5 hits, 6 Ks
The Case For Swisher: .350, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 2 runs scored
The Case For Soriano: 3.0 inn, 0 runs, 3 hits, 2 Ks, 3 saves
