BOMBERS SEND TRIBE BACK TO ORPHANAGE. New York Crushes Cleveland Again 14-1


---new-york-yankees-223768_1500_1500If anyone is feeling like a pack of red-headed step children, the Cleveland Indians must be them – and frankly, that’s a slight on red-headed step children.

The team formerly known as the Bronx Bombers turned into the Strategic Air Command on Tuesday evening and brought misery to the shores of Lake Erie.  Robinson Cano lead the air campaign with a two-run blast in the fourth inning, his third round-trip dinger in the past two games.

Ichiro Suzuki, Kevin Youkilis, Lyle Overbay and Brennan Boesch also launched ballistic missile attacks on Cleveland pitching.  Indians starter Carlos Carrasco was brutalized for seven runs before his was ejected from the game for attempting to behead Youkilis following Cano’s blast.  Carrasco apparently hadn’t learned his lesson as he recently completed his suspension for throwing at Royals batter Billy Butler in 2011  – yes, the wheels of justice turn slowly in Major Legaue Baseball.

New York improved its record to 4-4, 1.5 games back of division leading Boston.  Cleveland dropped to 3-5 and has sole possession of the basement in the AL Central.
