They needed to win at least 3 out of 4 in my book for this series to be a success. They did that, and more, as they swept the Mets in a 4 game set. Sanchez had 5 RBIs in this one and Severino had an amazing bounce back from his last outing. But the Mets made it slightly interesting at the end...I also give updates on Bird, Castro, Holliday, and CC.
Judge with a homerun, but also with a strikeout record. Sanchez with a great defensive play. Garcia with a decent outing. And DRob with the save! Yankees win the third one of the Subway series, 5-3.
Sonny Gray finally had some run support. Enough to win the game. Chapman almost blew the game again though - I give my thoughts about him as a closer. Also talk a little bit about Judge, Sanchez, and Bird.
This was a fun one. Pitching dominated. Judge, Hicks, and Sanchez all got solo shots - their 40th career homerun for each. Yankees take the first one in the subway series 4-2.
This one hurt. Friday was a rollercoaster and a great game for the Yankees, after the 8th inning. Saturday was one that the Yankees will want to quickly forget. And Sunday felt like a playoff game where the Red Sox had their best pitcher on the mound and the Yankees were 4 strikes away from taking it...but Chapman blew it. I break down each game and some of my complaints from Game 2 and 3.
The Yankees offense has a case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. One day they are great, the other not so much. Today was the not so much. And even though Sonny Gray didn't quite have it, he was able to grind through 6 innings allowing just 3 runs, 2 earned. Which is good for a Quality Start.
Tanaka wasn't able to last more than 4 innings. The bullpen even allowed 2 runs as well to make it a 1 run game at one point. But the Yankees offense said "no more" and ended up getting 17 hits and scoring 11 runs to win this one 11-5.
The offense struggled once again. The fact that all 2 runs the Yankees scored were thanks to Garett Cooper, tells you all you need to know about this offense tonight. CC also only pithed 3 innings, but Mitchell pitched 4 great innings in relieve. This is the recap of the 4-2 loss to the Blue Jays.
This series was off to a rough start, but thanks to some amazing pitching on Saturday and Sunday, and some good offense on Sunday, the Yankees were able to salvage 2 out of 4 against a really good team, the Cleveland Indians.
Three in a row. That's how many the Yankees have lost. Pretty rough. But at least it was Sonny Gray's debut and that was exciting. I discuss his debut, the lack of defense and offense, in this latest recap.
