2) Yandy goes yard
It’s been a long time coming for Yandy Diaz, but finally the 27-year-old hit his first career home run on Tuesday night. It came in the fifth inning on a 1-0 count, as Royals reliever Jake Newbury tried to run a slider by Diaz around the knees. Diaz got just enough of it to just get it over the center field fence and in the process lifted a huge monkey off of his back. It was the first of what Terry Francona said will be many. Lindor added that Diaz will be a 25-30 homer guy consistently in the years to come. It would also be a disservice not to mention that Diaz came up just a double shy of the cycle for the night as well.
