Majors Baseball Congdon Appraisal Yankees beat RBI Royals 8-6

The Royals jumped out to a 5-1 lead after two innings by a feverish offense in the first two innings that included a double by Noah Cataldi, and both Cooper Klinger and Tino Michitti scoring two runs each.  The Yankees fought back, with 3 runs in the third, but the Royals defense showed consistent play and kept the Yankees from scoring any runs in the 4th. With the Royals still up by 2 runs, Jobe Congdon hit a solo run home run to tie the game in the 4th. Mason Mohn tried to make it back to back with a shot off the centerfield fence. Mohn scored when Jake Spooner hit a well-timed opposite-field grounder. Aside from a double to deep left by Braxton Iannone, Preston Nezelek kept the Royals off the base pads and from scoring. The Royals looked like they were in the driver seat when big hard-throwing Noah Cataldi took to the mound in the top of the 6th with the game still tied. Nezelek drew a walk followed by a deep shot over the centerfield fence by Jobe Congdon to put the Yankees up by 2. The Yankee Nezelek, Congdon, Mohn and Loy all had multiple hits.
