Game 120. Sweep the Mets, Sweep the Mets, step right up and Sweep the Mets!

Yankee Stadium Frieze

I hope I don’t have to pay copyright infringement on the Mets’ theme song. LOL.

The Yanks swept the Subway Series from the Mets, 7-5 tonight, to improve to 65-55. 4 back of Boston in the AL East, still in control of the top wild card spot.

They face Boston in Fenway this weekend.

Gary Sanchez drove in 5 runs.

In the first, he hit a 3-run HR. (22)

In the fourth, Tyler Austin (just called up b/c Garrett Cooper was put on the DL w/a hamstring problem) singled. Austin was 2 for 4 tonight. Torreyes singled and Severino was called upon to bunt. Even though he popped up the bunt, it was missed, and Severino got his first MLB hit to load the bases with no one out. Gardner doubled in two. Hicks grounded out softly, no advance. Judge was HBP to reload the bases and Sanchez singled in two to put the Yanks up 7-0.

The Mets got an unearned run in the seventh on a two-base error by Judge, WP by Severino (brilliant tonight) and RBI single.

So the Yanks took a 7-1 lead into the ninth. Garbage time for Bryan Mitchell, who was garbage, getting no one out. Double, Single, Walk loads the bases and Ex-Yankee Curtis Granderson hits a grand slam to make it 7-5 and send Mitchell out, Betances in, and Betances finishes off the sweep of the Metropolitans.

Severino 6 1/3 IP, 1 R, unearned, 4 H, 3 W, 9 K. (W, 10-5, 3.18)
Shreve 1 2/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 3 K. 2.70
Mitchell 0 IP, 4 R, 3 H, 1 W, 0 K. 4.67 Gave up a grand slam.
Betances (S, 8) 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W 0 K 2.15.

Imagine how scary Aaron Judge (3 K tonight) could be if he cut his strikeouts by 25-30%????

Gardner 2 RBI
Sanchez 2 hits, HR (22), 5 RBI
Gregorius 2 hits, .311
Austin 2 hits.

Minor League Report.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

One thing I would like to remind you about.

This sport of baseball is a crazy sport. Even though the Yanks play with a 25-man roster for most of the year, rosters can expand on Sept. 1.  Other sports don’t do this. Now, how many players will the Yanks leave down in the minors to compete for minor league titles and how many players will they bring up to expand the MLB roster to compete for the playoffs, who knows. But this is one reason I do the minor league report. Once rosters expand, who will be added? That way, you have an idea. For example, remember the big HR Slade Heathcott (now with the Giants AA/AAA) hit a couple of years back that helped the Yanks get in the playoffs?

AAA: SWB (73-41) won 5-0. 2 hits, solo HR 2B Donovan Solano. SS Cito Culver 2 hits, rbi. RF Jake Cave 2 hits, RBI. Neither Aaron Hicks or Tyler Austin, both rehabbing, played.
