In an age where we see a lot of four-hour games, Sunday’s game was very old-school crisp, lasting just 2:14.
Corey Kluber, in his last two starts, has resembled the Kluger that won two CYA as a member of the Indians. Yesterday, the Yankees (14-14) needed just that. The Yanks only got three hits in a 2-0 win.
Kluber went 8 innings, gave up just two hits and struck out 10 in a masterful performance.
The only runs of the game came in the second inning. Gio Urshela singled and Aaron Hicks walked. After an out, Kyle Higashioka doubled home Urshela, Hicks moving to third. Brett Gardner hit a long drive that was caught at the wall for a SF.
That was the whole ballgame as both pitchers pitched brilliantly, with Kluber being slightly better.
