even with Yankees Flying higher than in any season since 1998, average pessimistic fans can be forgiven for their nagging thoughts about the game scheduled for Tuesday night. New York will start firing a pitcher at JP Sears who has spent most of his time in the minor leagues, and they’ll have to deal with Frankie Montas of Oakland – perhaps the only All-Star on the A-list.
Although Montas outperformed Sears by some measures, the Yankees managed to scratch two runs early and went on through the ninth inning rally from Clay Holmes for a 2-1 win. Also, a play related to Shawn Murphy and the catcher’s intervention played a huge role again. baseball!
The Yankees couldn’t wait to join the board today. DJ LeMahieu set out for a walk, even though Aaron Judge and Anthony Rizzo both caught sight (judge, on another low floor that should have been a ball). Josh Donaldson picked them a double, with LeMahieu moving into third. Five-hole hitter Jose Trevino followed him with a single to the right, and DJ recorded. Donaldson oddly tried to also score on what wasn’t a deep ball and went out by a mile, ending the inning.
Challenging Ramon Laureano’s arm with Donaldson’s slow runner isn’t just a wise move.
After Sears’ first two clean runs, Hicks started the bottom inning walking, although wiped out by a well-done double-playing ball from Isiah Keener-Valeva’s racket. That means the bases were empty when Marwin Gonzalez fired a home run to make it 2-0.
Team A got his first hit on the third in Sheldon Neuse’s single, but a surprised Trevino threw Rizzo out of close play:
Trevino simply continues to make the colossal All-Star case. Get your votes If you haven’t already!
Montas had his first goal-free run in the third inning, defeating Judge and Rizzo on the swing. He and Sears continued to trade goalless and fast through the fourth and fifth rounds. Trevino helped kick Christian Bethancourt off in an attempt to steal second place to finish fourth.
Again, I think Trevino should be an All-Star?
The Yankees put a runner in the scoring position with one at the bottom of the fifth after a singles base and steal from IKF, but Joey Gallo had a shot outside – shock – LeMahieu lined up to keep the Yankees in two rounds.
Sears got two outs in the sixth – one is a Nice fishing for diving From Donaldson in sloppy territory – before allowing a double hit to Nick Allen and being replaced by Ron Marinaccio, who closed the tire with a hit from Lauriano. Sears was great, with 5.2 innings without points, three hits, one walk, and one hit allowed. He has yet to allow a run across 12.2 runs in his short MLB career.
With his pitch number approaching 100, Montas was still allowed to move up to sixth, and the Yankees quickly sent in, including the judge’s third strike.
Andy Peralta entered the Yankees at the top of seventh. Bethancourt walked over to start, hardly what you wanted to see in a close match. Murphy lined up for Gonzalez, and Peralta managed to knock out Stephen Biscotti. This brought Michael King into the game, and the right-hander quickly knocked out a confused Elvis Andros to finish the inning.
Montas was pulled to start seventh. His streak wasn’t bad at all – six runs, four hits, two hitters, two hits, seven hits. He will be accused of losing bad luck, which is nothing new for him in the last place team.
King got into little trouble in eighth place. He hits Tony Kemp to start, then walks into Neuse. Seth Brown, who had been putting pressure on Christian Patch, arrived with a volley to take the green light to the plate at Allen. Fortunately, he bounced a double play ball to LeMahieu, keeping Player A off the board.
A turned to Sam Selman at the bottom of the eighth, when we saw our first fireworks in a few rounds – but not with the bat. Gonzalez hit a single, followed by another hit by Gallo and LeMahieu’s lineup. With Judge at bat, home team referee Stu Shorewater called up another clear shot to hit the ball. Director Aaron Boone, caught by YES Network cameras screaming at Scheurwater several times, became even more angry, and was thrown out of the game, much to the cheering audience.
Judge flew to the shallow right to finish the run, but at least the ejection was fun.
With the save in place, Clay Holmes entered 9th and did things from Clay Holmes to start it off, getting two strikes. It was as if he had pushed Murphy to end the game and started “New York, NY” playing on the speakers at Yankee Stadium. But in a fortune turnover from yesterday, his racket clipped Trevino’s gauntlet and earned first base due to catcher interference.
Murphy stole second base, then discus hitter Stephen Vogt kept the game alive with a broken bat on the right field. Anders put one tough player in the middle of the field, cutting New York’s lead to 2-1. With a second-place runner (funny, former Minor League Yankees player James Caprillian) and things suddenly stressing, an unfazed Holmes knocked out Tony Kemp, finally ending the game and earning another series win for New York.
The Yankees are now 55-20, good for a 0.733 win ratio and 35 games on the .500 for the first time in 2022. They’ll do a clean sweep of A game tomorrow afternoon at 1:05 ET, with Jameson Tellon facing Cole Irvine.
