DH Trey Amburgey 2 hits, RBI

Cabrera this year: .272-28-85, 21 SB. The switch-hitter is 22 and has come out of nowhere this year. You hope it’s legit. I don’t know if he’s put on any weight or muscle, but various places have him listed as 5’10”, and just 145 pounds.

Minor League Action. SWB loses 5-1.

AAA SWB is the only team playing right now, and they lost on Sunday, 5-1.

Standings:

SWB 2nd in division, 3 games back
Somerset 1st by 2 1/2 games See below for Hudson Valley. First place in division still does not mean playoffs.
Hudson Valley 1st by 12 1/2. See below.

Hudson Valley still is OUT of the playoffs. The format for the 2021 Postseason will consist of two teams per league in a single best-of-5 series. The two playoff participants will be decided for each league (regardless of division) based on the best regular season winning percentage. (So if a 2nd place team in the other division has a higher winning pct., you are out).

Somerset, as of now, would make the playoffs by just 1/2 a game.

Tampa 1st by 3 1/2 games. Have clinched a playoff spot.

Minor League Action, 9-2-21. Somerset ballpark flooded.

Before going into the games, if you get a chance, google or search for the Somerset Patriots and take a look at the stadium. It’s underwater because of the hurricane coming through the northeast. Just awful with the flooding. It remains to be seen what happens to Somerset’s home games for the rest of the season. If moved, where to.

AAA: SWB (59-42) lost 5-3. SS Gleyber Torres 1 for 3 on rehab, was HBP. 2 hits and an RBI for RF Trey Amburgey.

With the expansion to 28 on Sept. 1 the Yanks called up OF Esteval Florial and relief pitcher Brooks Kriske. Torres is expected back today (Friday) so we we will see what moves are made.

Game 93. Yanks do big (4 HR) and small things in beating Phils, 6-4.

When you look at the Yankees’ win (6-4) over the Phillies last night, it’s easy to look at the four homers that were hit. But to me, most impressive was the little things that Greg Allen and rookie Estevan Florial did in the victory.

Both players are filling in while others are on the IL or Covid-IL.

Florial was brought up earlier in the day when Trey Amburgey (hamstring) had to go on the IL. This was his third MLB game.

The Phillies struck first when Rhys Hoskins hit a HR in the second inning off of Yankees’ starter Domingo German.

The Yanks tied it in the bottom of the third. Allen tripled, and Florial got him in with a groundout to second. Just doing the little things to get the run in.

The Phils got a run in the fourth to go up 2-1. They were helped by a balk by German, and ex-Yankee Ronald Torreyes doubled in the run.

The Yanks went up 3-2 in the fifth. Allen walked and stole second. He moved up to third when Florial flied out (doing the little things). I would have liked to have seen Tyler Wade squeeze home the run there, but he swung away and lined out to SS (to ex-Yankee Didi Gregorius). Gregorius tried to double Allen off of third but made a throwing error that allowed Allen to score. Brett Gardner followed that with a HR (4).

Gary Sanchez homered (17) in the sixth to make it 4-2 Yankees.

In the top of the seventh, Chad Green got out of a bases-loaded, one-out jam with a couple of strikeouts, the last one to Didi.

In the bottom of the seventh, Giancarlo Stanton homered (16) to put the Yanks up 5-2.

The Phillies got a run in the top of the eighth to cut it to 5-3, and it was Torreyes who got the inning going for them.

In the bottom of the eighth, Florial hit his first MLB HR to put the Yanks up 6-3.

Aroldis Chapman gave up a HR in the ninth to Andrew McCutchen (another ex-Yankee playing for the Phils, managed by, you guessed it, ex-Yankee Joe Girardi) that made the score 6-4 before closing out the game.

With the win, the Yanks, 49-44, are in a virtual tie for third, 7 games back. After tonight’s game with the Phils, they have four games at Fenway against Boston, followed by three in Tampa Bay. These games are right before the trade deadline.

I won’t write about rumors, but if the Yanks do make deals, I’ll write about the deal and my reaction to it.

Gardner solo HR (4)
Stanton 2 hits, solo HR (16)
Sanchez 2 hits, solo HR (17)
Florial 2 RBI, solo HR (1) FIRST MLB HR


German 4 IP, 2 R, 3 H, 3 W, 5 K. 1 Balk. Gave up 1 HR. 4.71
Cessa (W, 3-1) 1 1/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 2 W, 1 K. 2.89
Luetge (H, 3) 1 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 1 W, 1 K. 1 WP. 3.25
Green (H, 13) 2/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 2 K. 2.76
Britton (H, 2) 1 IP, 1 R, 3 H, 0 W, 1 K. 6.00
Chapman (S, 17) 1 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 0 W, 3 K. Gave up 1 HR. 4.41

The Yanks are bringing up Asher Wojciechowski for a spot start tonight vs. the Phils.

Game 90. Depleted Yanks get shut-out, 4-0.

Major problems. And these could sink the Yankees’ season.

The Yanks were already without Jonathan Loaisiga (Covid list). Clint Frazier and Miguel Andujar were on the IL, not to mention others like Corey Kluber, Aaron Hicks and Darren O’Day.

Now add to the Covid List Wandy Peralta, Nestor Cortes, Jr. Aaron Judge, Kyle Higashioka and Gio Urshela. Add Luke Voit (knee) to the IL.

As a result, a bunch of guys had to be brought up from SWB. Hoy Jun Park and Trey Amburgey each made their MLB debuts last night. Rob Brantly had to be brought up. Chris Gittens, just off the IL himself, had to come up. Zack Britton was activated off of the IL. Am I missing anyone?

The depleted Yanks lost to Boston 4-0, getting just three hits. They are 0-7 vs. Boston this year, and are now 9 back and in fourth place with a 46-44 record. They play Boston six more times between now and June 25. They have Tampa Bay June 27-29. (In between there are two games with the Phillies).

Those guys out will be out for a while, leaving it up to the scrubs. This could get ugly.

So what did we see last night? The Yanks had a #3 hitter hitting .219, a cleanup hitter hitting .215, A #5 hitter at .237, a #6 hitter at .190. The #7 hitter is 2 for 22 in his MLB career. The #8 hitter was making his MLB debut. The #9 hitter is at .180 and was pinch-hit for by another guy making his MLB debut. Hoo boy. Is it any wonder why the Yanks got shut out?

Poor Jordan Montgomery. No run support. Montgomery had just one bad inning, the second, when he gave up a walk, double, RBI groundout, and a 2-run HR for 3 runs. That was more than enough for Boston. The second straight game he lost 4-0. In his last five starts, Montgomery has lost four of them. In those five games, the Yankees have scored a total of seven runs.

Later, Justin Wilson, who has been absolutely brutal this season, gave up a solo HR for the last run of the game. 4-0, Boston.

Montgomery (L, 3-5) 6 IP, 3 R, 3 H, 2 W, 4 K. Gave up 1 HR. One bad inning. 4.18
German 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 0 K. 4.72
Wilson 1 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 0 W, 1 K. 8.62 Gave up 1 HR.
Chapman 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 1 K. 4.40
