Judge with #49 and #50 of the season to set a new rookie homerun record. Plus Gary and Bird also homered. The Baby Bombers lift the Yankees to a 11-3 win.
The Yankees were able to secure a spot in the postseason, as they will make it AT LEAST as the second wild card but the series in Toronto was a bit of a rough one as they drop 2 out of 3. But Bird is looking good and even better is Judge, whom hit 3 homeruns in this series - giving him a total of 48, one away from the rookie record of 49.
Severino didn't have it today, but the bullpen (specifically Chasen Shreve) and the offense, completely dominated. The Yankees win this one 11-3 to complete the sweep and give themselves a 7 game lead in the Wild Card standings.
A one run game that went the Yankees game! Who would've thunk it! Judge with his 44th homer of the season, Garcia with his best outing and the bullpen dominated (except for Betances) to give the Yankees the 2-1 win against the team in the second wild card spot, the Twins.
Garcia pitched pretty well. The bullpen was almost lights out. It was an intense one, but the Yankees came on top 3-2.
Yankees ’17 Game 144 – Sonny was lights out, but the offense was a little gray as they drop this one 2-1
Sonny Gray completely dominated. Allowing just 2 runs (both solo shots) on 8 innings pitched. The offense, however, had only 3 hits and scored only one run. Not what you want.
CC looked ok, not great, but ok. Good enough to only allow a run and keep the team in the game. The bullpen looked pretty dominant, with Robertson, Betances, and Chapman holding it down. The Yankees scored all their runs in the 4th where they scored 5, in part thanks to an error from Tampa.
The series started off to a rough start with a 11-5 loss. But thanks to an amazing outing from Severino on Saturday and a great showing from the offense on Sunday, the Yankees were able to win the series and take 2 out of 3.
It had been 4 years since the Yankees had won a series at Camden Yards. Thanks to winning this one, they've finally broken the curse. Gray looked lights out. The offense didn't skip a beat. Judge got his 39th homer. Headley, Castro, and Frazier all homered as well. Beautiful 9-1 win for the Yanks.
The Yankees were leading this one 6-1 at one point. Unfortunately, CC allowed 4 more runs to make it 6-5 and Betances couldn't close it out. Frustrating loss.
