Yanks Fall To A’s, Rookie Pitching, And Cubans

It looked like an impossible task for the Yankees last night, a rookie pitcher. A.J. Griffin wasn’t a top draft pick, he wasn’t even a top prospect, but he’s been pitching like an ace. The Yankees started off last night’s game with a few hard hit balls, a bizarre line out to Yoennis...
