YANKEES WIN 4-3!
Gary Sánchez walks it off in the ninth and the Yankees complete the sweep of the Twins for their sixth straight win! -
The Yanks trailed for almost the entirety of the ballgame, and were dominated by Kyle Gibson for six innings. They did not notch a single hit until a Brett Gardner single in the sixth. -
Jordan Montgomery was okay today. He has to get the walks down though. His line: 5.0 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 6 K. Not bad, I’ll take it. I guess you have to with this kind of offense.
The Yanks got on the board with their first run in the seventh to make it a 3-1 game. Giancarlo Stanton led off the inning with a single, was moved over on a wild pitch, and brought in on an Aaron Hicks sac fly. -
After Dellin struck out the side (threw 10/12 pitches for strikes), the Yankees came to the plate in the ninth down by two. Didi led off the inning and reached on an error. Stanton followed him up with an infield single. The next batter, would be the final batter. Gary Sanchez lifted a Fernando Rodney fastball far into the left field seats for a dramatic, 3-Run walk off blast. It’s Gary’s 6th home run of the season, and his first career walk off hit. -
Let’s not forget about Germán and Dellin, who pitched very well in relief. Their lines:
Germán: 3.0 IP, 4 H, R, ER, BB, 3 K
Dellin: 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 3 K
Unbelievable win today. It’s the first Yankee win this year when trailing after the eighth inning. The home stand comes to a close with the Yanks having won 8 out of 10, and they head to Anaheim with their ace on the mound having won six in a row. KEEP THE WINNING GOING! #LetsGoYankees
