Recap of the last regular season series of 2017

October 1, 2017

Yankees finished strong winning 2 out of 3 agains the Blue Jays. Finish the season with 20 games over .500 and are going into the Wild Card game as the clear favorites. I recap this series and give me thoughts on the season. 


Yankees ’17 Game 159 – Girardi and the Yankees let an important game get away from them

September 28, 2017

This was a game the Yankees needed to win. A game they could've easily won if it not were for Gray struggling a bit, Gary's passed balls, and Girardi making questionable decisions. 


Yankees ’17 Game 158 – Severino with a strong finish as the Yankees win 6-1

September 27, 2017

Severino ended his regular season with another strong outing. Three Yankees go yard and Judge sets another rookie record, as the Yankees win 6-1. 


Yankees ’17 Game 157 – Hicks and Montgomery lift the Yankees to a 6-1 win

September 26, 2017

Hicks saved a grandslam in the first inning that completely changed the tone of this game. Montgomery was able to bounce back from that and keep the Yankees in it, allowing just 1 run over 6 innings. The Yankees offense continued to score, as they scored 6 in this one to win it 6-1. 


Yankees ’17 Game 156 – Judge sets new rookie homerun record as the Yankees win it 11-3

September 25, 2017

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. 


Yankees vs Blue Jays Weekend Series Recap – Yankees clinch but drop 2 out of 3

September 24, 2017

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. 


Yankees ’17 Game 152 – Yankees complete the sweep against the Twins

September 20, 2017

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. 


Yankees ’17 Game 150 – Yankees out-pitch the Twins to win this one 2-1

September 18, 2017

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. 


Yankees ’17 Game 145 – Yankees win the series vs the Rays, win the final game 3-2

September 13, 2017

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

September 12, 2017

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.
