Smiles All Around

Sometimes baseball can break out the smiles.

Everyone was reminded of that in the eighth inning when Robinson Cano bounced a run-scoring single up the middle. He rounded first and glanced back at Melky Cabrera crossing the plate before he allowed himself to enjoy the moment.

Cano – hitting just .220 with four home runs and 21 RBIs – hasn’t had much to smile about this year.

His struggles at the plate forced him to the bench last night, but with the Yankees clinging to a one-run lead he was called on to pinch hit.

Two hops and through and it was smiles all around.

It’s great to see Robbie smiling again.

Getting Cano going is a key to the season for sure.
