How Did Sterling Call Gary Sanchez's First Homer?

Yankees catcher-of-the-future Gary Sanchez blasted his first career home run, a back-waller to center field at Fenway on Wednesday night. Here's how John Sterling called what we hope will be the first of many for Sanchez:
When the Yanks called up Sanchez earlier in the season, here's what I predicted:

I have a weird hunch that Sterling will go extra-corny with this one: "Gary, Gary, quite contrary ... What makes your garden grow?"

As it turns out, Sterling wasn't as much corny as he was lazy. Just because the Yanks basically waved the white flag at the trade deadline doesn't mean the team's broadcasters get to mail it in, too. Let's hope Sterling workshops a few more calls for Sanchez and goes with one of those. El Gary deserves better, Jawn.
