SWB won Game 4 of the Governor’s cup, 5-2, to force a fifth and deciding game for the International League Championship, which is to be played Saturday at 4 PM.

Even though the game will be at SWB’s home field, Durham, just like in Games 3 and 4, will be the home team. Games 3, 4 and 5 have had to be played at SWB instead of Durham b/c of the Hurricane hitting the Carolinas.

3b Gio Urshella 2 hits, solo HR.
DH Mike Ford 2 hits, 4 RBI, inc. a 3-run HR.

Game 135. Yanks comeback to win, 7-5. Boone tossed, faces suspension.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

The Yanks (85-50) scored 3 in the bottom of the eighth and survived a 9th inning care to beat Detroit 7-5 Friday night.

Manager Aaron Boone was ejected in the fifth inning, apparently touched the home plate umpire in pointing his finger to make a point about the strike zone and faces a suspension. His arguing was great, however, and humorous. In making his point, he squatted behind home plate, and held out his arm like a catcher in two positions, as if to say “this is a strike, and this is too low.” The look on the ump’s face as Boone left was priceless, as if he wanted to cry because he was shown up in front of 40,000+ people.

If you think what I wrote was cruel or biased, consider this. Detroit’s manager, Ron Gardenhire, was also tossed from the game for arguing a checked swing call on Luke Voit, who drew a crucial walk late in the game.

Anyway, Boone’s tirade might have fired up the Yanks and may have won the game.

Detroit got a run in the fourth when Luis Severino gave up a HR, and the Tigers got two more off of Seve in the fifth.

Meanwhile, after five innings, the Yanks had no hits. In the bottom of the fifth, Boone put on his show.

In the bottom of the sixth, down 3-0, Romine reached on an error, and after an out, Brett Gardner finally got the Yanks’ first hit of the game, a 2-run HR (12) to make it 3-2. It appeared that a couple of pitches previously called strikes were now called balls, so maybe Boone’s outburst made a difference. After another out, Aaron Hicks (23) and Miguel Andujar (23) hit back-to-back HRs to put the Yanks up 4-3.

I still don’t know why the Yanks keep trusting Jonathan Holder in the middle innings of close games. I think they are placing too much trust in him. But then, with Adam Warren gone, there isn’t that cushion. In the seventh, Holder gave up a couple of hits, albeit bloopers. With two out and two on, in came Zach Britton who continued to struggle, giving up a hit to tie the game.

Britton then gave up another run in the eighth to put Detroit up 5-4.

In the bottom of the eighth, Gardner doubled, and after an out, Hicks walked. Another out. Voit walked to load the bases, after which Detroit manager Gardenhire was tossed from the game. Gleyber Torres singled in two runs, moved up on the throw. 2nd and 3rd, two out and Neil Walker was intentionally walked. Austin Romine singled to make it 7-5.

David Robertson made things hairy in the 9th, with a single, PB and a walk, but escaped.

Boston had a rain delay and was still playing and losing as I wrote this. It looks like the Yanks’ deficit will be cut to 7 1/2, but with just 27 games to go. Oakland and Seattle are playing each other late, too.

Gardner 2 hits, HR (12) 2 RBI
Hicks solo HR (23)

Stephen Tarpley, a lefty reliever, will join the Yankees when rosters expand on Saturday, says @ByDJEberle. Also, Cessa and Wade will be recalled. Boone said Sheffield wouldn’t be called up on Saturday, but that’s inevitable.

My note: Tarpley before tonight, AA/AAA 7-2, 1.94, 2 saves, 25.

 

The have acquired SS Adeiny Hechavarria and cash considerations from Pittsburgh in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations. To make room on the 40-man roster, the have designated LHP Ryan Bollinger for assignment.

Bollinger ,27, was 8-6, 3.87 AA/AAA

Hecavarria 29, hit .254-4-29 for Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh this year, OPS+ 75. For his MLB career, the righty hitter has a 162 g. average of .255-5-48, OPS+ 76.

Minor League Report. Frazier Injured?

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

I don’t know if the Yanks would have traded Clint Frazier anyway, word is he’s off the table, but it may turn out that they couldn’t anyway. Frazier dove for a ball in the first inning and was pulled from the game shortly thereafter.

AAA: SWB (51-44) won 7-3. Shane Robinson, Frazier’s replacement, 2 hits. 1B Mike Ford, 3 hits, triple shy of the cycle, HR a solo HR off of Andrew Miller. 3B Rey Navarro 2 hits, double, HR,  2 RBI. C Francisco Diaz 2 RBI. 2B Brandon Drury 2 hits, RBI.

SWB’s bullpen pitched 4 2/3 scoreless, no-hit innings. Columbus had Andrew Miller pitching (rehab) and Shane Bieber, who recently faced the Yanks, pitched as well.
