About Last Night: The Kyle Seager Show

Kyle Seager had himself quite a game last night in Yankee Stadium. He finished with two triples, a double and a home run. That works out to a .800/.800/2.400/3.200 slashline.

Here’s where his hits landed:

As you can see from where the pitches landed, Kyle Seager was just having one of those nights where the ball looked like a beachball, especially against Aceves in the eighth and ninth innings.
