This will be quick. I apologize for no recent recaps, but I didn’t have home internet access. Something with Verizon and DSL lines.
Game 71. The Yanks got 3 HR, inc. a walkoff from Starlin Castro (10), to beat the Rockies 9-8. Chase Headley (4) had a grand slam, and Carlos Beltran hit his 19th HR,#411 career, to put him one behind Alfonso Soriano on the all-time list. Beltran’s HR was huge, as it cut an 8-4 Colorado lead down to 8-7 late in that game. Didi Gregorius then tied it with a single. Aroldis Chapman got the win.
Game 72. Rob Refsnyder got the GW RBI single, and Aaron Hicks hit his 3rd HR of the year in a 5-3 Yankees’ win. Tanaka (5-2, 3.01) with the win.
Game 73. The Yanks go over .500 to 37-36 with a 2-1 win. It was the best game Pineda pitched all year. RBI single for Beltran, and the winning run scored in the bottom of the eighth on an error. Once again, no runs DMC does the job. Teixiera returned to the lineup.
