The Yankees win! The Bullpen was phenomenal today, Cutch went deep, Gardy hit a bloop RBI single, Judge hit a RBI double, and so did Stanton.

The Yankees take game one of this four game series against the Tampa Bay Rays by a final score of 4-1!! The Yankees used Jonathan Holder as the “The opener” to start the game. He threw a scoreless first inning. The rest of the relievers did a great job tonight. Stephen Tarpley (1.0 IP), Chad Green (1.0 IP), David Robertson (1.0 IP), Aroldis Chapman (1.0 IP), Dellin Betances (1.0 IP), and Zach Britton (1.0 IP) each had scoreless appearances. Sonny Gray also threw two innings, but he allowed a run. Green struck out the side in his scoreless inning. The Yankees jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the third inning on Andrew McCutchen’s solo blast just inside the foul pole in left. That was his 20th of the season. The Rays tied it at one in the fourth. Brett Gardner gave the Yanks the lead right back in the fifth. He lined an RBI single to center. Later in the inning, Giancarlo Stanton made it 3-1 after he lined an RBI double to left. Aaron Judge lined an RBI double to center in the seventh to extend the lead to 4-1. McCutchen had a two hit night. The Yankees send Luis Severino to the mound tomorrow night for game two of this four game series.
