The Yankees are the luckiest sons of B's in baseball history that they have Austin Romine anchoring things during this bizarre, disastrous stretch. Though anything that can go wrong has gone wrong for the Yanks in 2019, roster-wise, they're still somehow 11-10 thanks to their backup catcher saving the day. This team led 5-0 into the eighth, but the Royals took a 6-5 lead in the blink of an eye. Romine tied it four batters later. In the tenth, Romine won it.

And do not forget--you CANNOT forget--Thairo Estrada, promoted on Sunday, bunting the runners over in the tenth in his first career at-bat. That takes stones.
Romine spit on this Ian Kennedy breaker like he knew it was coming, sending it 375 feet into dead center for a "single" over Billy Hamilton.
Ballgame, and the absolute best way to send your squad mates on a west coast road trip.
