MANUFACTURED RUN ALERT: Yank sluggers actually score without a HR

Beating the Phillies 6-1 today, the near-impossible occurred: 

The Yanks scored five runs without a homer. (For the sixth run, Aaron Hicks had a solo shot.) Most of the scoring came late, from minor leaguers and personal assistants. 

But Sherman, set the Wayback to the third inning... the magical third...

Batting ninth, SS Andrew Velazquez - (waiver signee, non-roster invitee, ex-Oriole, age 26, Bronx native) - singles.

Velazquez steals second. 

Aaron Hicks grounds out to the right side, moving Velazquez to third.

Luke Voit singles, scoring Velazquez.

That's how it's done.

Don't hold your breath for more of the same. By the way, what is a stolen base?
