Today, Cervelli hit his first career grand slam and his second career homerun. Damn. I hope this is a trend that continues so we can see him squatting behind home plate more often. Or even keep him in Pinstripes.

According to ESPN, Cervelli didn't realize the bases were loaded, which is totally adorable. Cervelli's dedicated the hit to his mother who was in Venezuela but, I have a feeling that he also hit it for Action Bronson, who grinned from ear to ear when she watched him drive the ball to center after fighting with a 3-2 count.
Just after Cervelli's monumental hit, Jeter smashed a two-run shot out of the park, his 2nd homer in the game, bringing himself and Brett Brett in to score. Jeter ultimately went 4 for 6 with a stolen base in the 5th.

Double Hat Action Bronson and YBG would also like to wish Bleacher Creature Dave a happy birthday. He is super old, but at least he got to see the Yankees win on his birthday. Oh, and Happy Mother's Day, Mom! Love you!
