Michael Kay had it his way with the rare Burger-King matchup when the Yankees took on the White Sox on Thursday afternoon.

During the first leg of the teams’ doubleheader, White Sox slugger Jake Burger came up to the plate to face Yankees pitcher Michael King in the top of the seventh inning.

By the third pitch of the at-bat, Kay realized what type of shenanigans were unfolding in front of him.

“Check the bug up there — Burger against King,” Kay said. “Burger King.”

And then the quips started coming.

“Well, King wants to have it his way right now.”

After Burger grounded out to third base, Kay slipped in, “That was a whopper of an out that King got.”

The White Sox wound up holding onto their 6-5 lead.

Burger did have it his way in Game 1, homering as part of a two-hit day.

Nonetheless, the Yankees have improved their lot in the season since they were 17-15 and a fan was direct messaging Kay on Twitter asking the Yankees broadcaster how he “could possibly defend [Brian] Cashman.”

“Okay, let’s do this,” Kay responded to the direct message.

“You give me a quote, or a sentence where I defended Cashman on the air tonight, any proof you can come up with, and I will make a sizable donation to your favorite charity. Again, any instance of me defending the Yankee GM during tonight’s broadcast, and I will gladly make the donation.

“And if you can’t come up with proof, and you will not be able to because it doesn’t exist, I want nothing back from you, other than you gaining the knowledge that what you and others hear is that when someone isn’t bashing Cashman who think they’re defending him. I will patiently await the proof. Thank you for watching the game on Prime.”

The Twitter user never responded after that, and the Yankees have gone 19-11 in the 30 games since.
