Yankee Stadium Frieze

Gary Sanchez and Tyler Austin homered in the Yanks’ 6-4 win over Boston on Tuesday night.

The win puts the Yanks at 81-76 and guarantees a non-losing season. The last time the Yanks had a losing season was 1992.

Sanchez’ 20th HR tied a record for lowest # of career games to hit your 20th.

The homer came in the first inning and put the Yanks up 2-0. It came after a Jacoby Ellsbury single.

Ellsbury singled in a run in the fifth to put the Yanks up 3-0. This came after singles by Romine and Austin and a sac bunt by Gardner (Now he bunts).

Boston came back with two in the sixth to cut it to 3-2.

Didi Gregorius hit his 20th HR of the year in the bottom of the sixth. 4-2 Yanks.

In the seventh, Boston got a HR by Aaron Hill to make it 4-3, and then Dustin Pedroia’s second RBI single of the game tied the game up.

In the bottom of the seventh, Austin’s 2-run HR (4) won it.

Cessa 6 IP, 2 R, 5 H, 1 walk, 2 K. 4.18
Layne (BS, 2) 2/3 IP, 2 R, 3 H, 0 walks, 1 K. 3.50 (Bos/NYY) Gave up 1 HR.
Parker (w, 1-0, 4.96) 2/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 1 walk, 0 K.
Bleier (H, 2) 2/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 walks, 1 K. 2.25
Clippard (S, 3) 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 1 walk, 2 K. 3.67.

The tragic # is 2. A Yanks loss and a Baltimore win eliminates the Yanks from the postseason.
