Yanks’ Cano day to day after getting beaned


New York Yankees’ all-star second baseman narrowly escaped serious injury on Wednesday night when during the fifth inning he was hit in the batting helmet by a 93 miles per hour fastball. Showing to have a high pain tolerance Cano, who was hit by Kansas City Royals’ reliever, Nate Adcock, was temporarily dazzed, but luckily has not suffered any lingering injuries. “That’s dealing with somebody’s life,” Adcock who hit Cano on a 1-1 pitch said. “You hit them in the head, that [could] change a whole lot of things. Is it going to keep me from pitching inside? No. I’m doing what I’m doing and trying to have some success and you never want to see that happen.” “It just got away.” Showing to be a real team Yankees’ starting pitcher, A.J. Burnett, stuck up for Cano when, with one out and a man on base, he nailed Royals’ infielder, Jeff Francoeur, in the back. Needless to say both teams were then warned. “I’ve got no problem with that,” Francoeur whose team beat the Yankees 4-3 in 11 innings said. “It’s part of the game and that’s how it is.” Cano who wanted to stay in the game had a CAT scan which turned out to be negative. On the season Cano is hitting .292 with eight homeruns and 24 RBI’s.
