Game 88. Yanks win in 16, 4-1.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

The game featured two All-Stars as the starters, and both lived up to their pedigree. Aaron Sale, the recent AL starter in the All Star Game, owns the Yanks and did so again by giving up no runs and striking out 13 in 7 2/3 innings. Meanwhile, Yankee starter Luis Severino only gave up one run in 7 innings of work.

But in the ninth, All star closer Craig Kimbrell, who was 30 for 30 in save opportunities at Fenway Park, finally blew one up there. Matt Holliday tied the game up with his 16th HR of the season.

So to extra innings. And more extra innings. And even more extra innings.

Finally in the top of the 16th, the Yanks busted it open and won the game 4-1. Ellsbury led off the inning with a double, and Headley singled him to third. Didi Gregorius singled in one run, Austin Romine singled in another and later on, Gary Sanchez hit a SF.

For the two teams, not much rest. They have a day/night DH today (Sunday).

Great job by the Yankees’ pitchers.
