Yost returns to Royals after happy occasions


ST. PETERSBURG -- Manager Ned Yost was back at the helm of the Royals on Friday night, returning from his daughter Jenny's wedding in Georgia.

Everything went well with the nuptials and Yost proudly showed a photo of him with Jenny.

"She looked stunning," he said.

Not that Yost was completely unaware of what was going on Thursday night at Tropicana Field in the Royals-Rays game.

"I watched it on the phone sitting there," Yost confessed.

He was concerned when the game was scoreless through five innings. But, sneaking a peek, Yost got good news from the phone TV screen in the sixth.

"I look and we got two -- good. Boom! Four, six, eight -- man!" he said.

Yep, the final was 10-1 and acting manager Chino Cadahia was 1-0 as Yost's stand-in.

"I'm going to quit on this one," Cadahia said happily.
