Soriano: 6 RBI’s last night, 7 Tonight….where next?

MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at New York Yankees

The late acquisition of Alfonso Soriano may be the last throw of the dice for the Yankees distant play off hopes, and tonight against a faltering Angels he produced another inspired performance with 7 RBI’s including two home runs. In addition, he is one of only three major league batters in the history of the game to score 6 or more RBI’s in consecutive games. Angels starter Jered Weaver was the man put to the sword by the Yankees slugger, giving up 9 runs in 5 innings. The final score was 11 – 3.
