Game 66. Yanks come from behind for a 6-5 win.

Before the game, GM Brian Cashman addressed the media, stating he still believes in manager Aaron Boone and the team and that the Yankees (34-32, 3rd in AL East, 8 back) would be buyers, not sellers, at the trade deadline.

The Yanks then went out and snapped their 3-game losing streak with a 6-5 win in Buffalo over the Toronto Blue Jays.

The night started off shaky. Yankees’ starter Jordan Montgomery walked the bases loaded with no one out in the bottom of the first but got out of the inning giving up only one run.

Gary Sanchez tied the game up in the top of the second with his ninth HR of the season.

Yankee-killer Bo Bichette homered in the third inning to give the Blue Jays a 2-1 lead.

In the top of the fourth, Chris Gittens got his first MLB hit, a HR, to tie the game. Gittens was 0 for 14 before that.

Toronto came back with three runs in the bottom of the fourth, all with two out, and Bichette was the guy again, delivering a two-run single.

The Yanks cut it to 5-3 in the top of the sixth. With one out, Gio Urshela singled, and Sanchez doubled him to third. A groundout by Miguel Andujar scored Urshela.

The Yanks then tied it up it the seventh, thanks to a gift run. Brett Gardner led off the inning with his second HR of the season. D.J. LeMahieu then doubled. Two wild pitches enabled LeMahieu to score and tie up the game.

The game-winning run came in the top of the eighth. Andujar singled, and Tyler Wade pinch-ran for him. One out later, Wade stole second, and pinch-hitter Clint Frazier then doubled home Wade to make it 6-5.

An oddity: Gerrit Cole, who is starting tonight, leads the Yankees with seven wins. Second is Jonathan Loaisiga with six—all in relief.

LeMahieu 2 hits
Sanchez 2 hits, solo HR (9)
Gittens solo HR (1). FIRST MLB HIT.
Gardner solo HR (2)
Frazier pinch-hit GW RBI double.


Montgomery 5 1/3 IP, 5 R, 4 ER, 5 H, 4 W, 4 K. Gave up 1 HR. 4.20
Cessa 2/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 1 K. 3.33

Minor League Notes: TIme to really get concerned about Deivi Garcia. He only got one man out last night, and gave up five runs. His ERA at AAA SWB is now 8.10 (and in his 2 starts with the Yankees, 6.48). Ugly. Estevan Florial had 2 doubles and a HR, and drove in 3 runs as SWB (21-11) won 12-6. Florial is still hitting just .195. 2B Hoy Jun Park went 4 for 4, 3 RBI, and is hitting .365 for SWB. I, for one, advocate calling him up and replacing Odor.

AA: Luke Voit went 1 for 4 on rehab as Somerset (23-13) won 10-1. Starter Glenn Otto 7 IP, 1 R, 3 H, 2 W, 14 K (3-2, 3.95). SS Oswald Peraza 3 hits, 2B Diego Castillo 3 hits, 4 RBI, 2-run HR. C Donny Sands 3 hits, 3 RBI, 2 HR, a solo shot and a 2-run shot.

High A: Hudson Valley (21-14) won 6-5. C Josh Breaux 2 hits, solo HR. 1B Chad Bell a 3-run HR.

Low A: Tampa (27-10) won 10-5. C Austin Wells 3 hits, RBI. RF Josh Sanford 4 for 4, 2 RBI, solo HR. 2B Trevor Hauver 2 hits, 2 RBI. Two others with 2 hits each.

Game 115. Yanks win 9th in a row behind red-hot Urshela, Tauchman.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

The Yankees (76-39) won their 9th straight game, 12-6 over Toronto, as Gio Urshela and Mike Tauchman stayed red-hot.

Urshela became only the second 3B ever with back-to-back 2 HR, 4 RBI games. The other is Matt Williams.

Tampa Bay was idle, so the Yanks’ lead in the AL East increased to 10 1/2 games. They have the best winning percentage in the majors by .003 over the L.A. Dodgers. They play the Dodgers in L.A. in two weeks.

Urshela got the Yanks going with a 2-run HR (15), his first of the game, in the first inning. 2-0 Yanks.

The Yanks got six in the third inning to make it 8-0. Breyvic Valera was HBP and D.J. LeMahieu singled him to second. Both runners moved up on an Aaron Judge groundout, then moved up again on a WP that made the score 3-0. Urshela’s 2nd 2-run HR of the game (16) made it 5-0. Didi Gregorius then singled, moved up on another WP, and Cameron Maybin singled him home to make it 6-0. Then came a pitching change, an error on a pickoff attempt that enabled Maybin to move up to second, then Mike Tauchman hit a 2-run HR (11) to make it 8-0.

Domingo German was fine for four innings but fell apart in the fitth, giving up four runs, three earned, on two homers. Fortunately for German, who improved to 15-2, he had that nice cushion to work with. Bo Bichette, Dante’s son, hit one of the homers, becoming the first rookie since Ted Williams in 1939 to have an extra base hit in nine consecutive games.

The Yanks came right back with two runs in the top of sixth with two runs to make it 10-4. Austin Romine singled and one out later, Valera doubled.  LeMahieu then singled in both runs.

Chad Green gave up a run in the bottom of the sixth that cut the Yanks’ lead to 10-5.

Luis Cessa gave up a HR in the eighth that cut it to 10-6.

The Yanks scored two in the ninth for the final score of 12-6. Urshela singled, and one out later, Cameron Maybin, who had a rough day in the field, doubled. Tauchman singled in both runs.

LeMahieu 3 hits, 2 RBI  .338
Urshela 3 hits, 4 RBI.  Two 2-run HR (16)   .323
Maybin 3 hits, RBI   .335     Rough day in the field. One error, could have had two.
Tauchman 2 hits, 4 RBI.  2-run HR (11)
Romine 2 hits

German (W, 15-2, 4.05) 5 IP, 4 R, 3 ER, 8 H, 1 W, 3 K.  Gave up 2 HR
Green 1 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 0 W, 3 K.   4.93
Cessa (S, 1) 3 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 1 W, 5 K.   3.70

Next year, on August 13, 2020, the Yanks will play the White Sox in Iowa at the site of the Field of Dreams’ movie ballfield, what with the cornfield and all. Chicago will be the home team. The temporary seating will only seat about 8000.
