Shaker Grad Was Filthy Last Night; Helps Save Yankee Season

When Shaker grad Tommy Kahnle was drafted by the Yankees in 2010 it was a dream come true for the local flamethrowing pitcher.  Last night, he was called upon to prevent a Bronx nightmare from happening when he entered the game in the 8th inning, the lead in jeopardy, and the Yankee season on the line.   Latham, New York stand up!! Your hometown boy was filthy last night.

After Kahnle spent a few years in the Yankee organization, he bounced from the Colorado Rockies to the Chicago White Sox then back to the Yankees in a trade this July.  The Yankees have needed him, he’s been very very good.  Last night, as the Yankees were attempting to stave off elimination from the Cleveland Indians and live to play another day, he entered the game in the top of the 8th inning.  High drama to say the least.  He inherited 2 runners left there by unreliable reliever Dellin Betances and all the hard throwing righty did was strike out 5 of the next 6 hitters he faced. He pumped his fist, and shouted to the baseball Gods as Yankee fans roared their approval.

The local kid was an absolute beast last night when the Yankees needed him most.  Latham, stand up and be proud, just like 45,000 Yankee fans in the Bronx last night!
