The Daily Yam: Jay Bruce Single-Handedly Saved The Reds With Both His Bat And His Glove

  • Eric Goldschein

Welcome to The Daily Yam, bringing you Yesterday’s Awesome Moment, anything else you might have missed, and what to look forward to today. It’s your one-stop shop when you skipped last night’s action, or have forgotten what day it is. Last night, Jay Bruce did serious work in right field to rob a home run, then went up to the plate and hit one far enough that no one could catch it. Genius!

Your Daily Yam.

The Pirates were already up 1-0 when Andrew McCutchen hit a shot to right field. Thankfully for the Reds, they have Jay Bruce, who went up and robbed the baseball gods of a homer. He repaid the debt, however, by crushing one himself in the bottom of the ninth. The game went into extras at 1-1, and the Reds went on to win in 13.


The Reds better buy Jay Bruce a beer.

What Else Happened Last Night?

The Blackhawks took Game 4 from the Bruins after yet another overtime period; the Dodgers and Yankees split their double-header 6-4, 6-0.

What’s On Tap Today?

Oh, you know, just Game 7 of the NBA Finals at 9 p.m. ET. No biggie.

It’s Thursday. Enjoy it while it lasts.
