Morning Bits:A-Rod ties Gehrig, Pitchers Hitting, Reliance On The Longball

Good morning everyone!  To those who turned the channel to the NBA finals last night when the Yankees appeared up against it, you missed a piece of baseball history and a great comeback win by the Yankees!  Here are today’s morning links:

—The New York Times recounts A-Rod’s record-tying grand slam last night.

—The Wall Street Journal takes a look at Yankee pitchers swinging the bat during interleague road games.

—Shawn Clarke examines the reliance the Yankees have on the longball.

The Yankees will attempt to sweep the Braves tonight in the finale of this three game set. Hiroki Kuroda(5-6, 3.46 ERA) takes the mound for the Yankees and Tim Hudson(4-2, 3.83ERA) goes for the Braves. Game time is 7:10 EDT for this game, which will be broadcast on ESPN.  Enjoy your day everyone!
