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.

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.
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.
