Games 26 & 27. Yanks split a DH with Texas.

Before the Mother’s Day DH against Texas, a couple of moves. Tim Locastro goes on the IL with a back injury, and with the Yanks playing 23 games in 22 days, Ron Marinaccio was brought up. Also, for the DH only, Estevan Florial was brought up.

The Yanks (19-8) didn’t hit much Sunday, and split a DH with Texas.

Game 1: Gleyber Torres hit a walkoff HR (4) in the bottom of the ninth as the Yanks won 2-1. The Yanks didn’t get a hit until the sixth inning, when Aaron Judge singled, Anthony Rizzo singled Judge to third, and Giancarlo Stanton hit a SF.

With one out in the top of the seventh, Gerrit Cole gave up a HR to the last batter he faced (pitch #114. One batter too many? But then Cole did strike out the previous hitter on three pitches) and the score was tied. Torres led off the bottom of the ninth with his game-winning blow. The Yanks only had five hits in this game.

Torres 2 hits, RBI. Solo GW HR (4)

Cole 6 1/3 IP, 1 R, 5 H, 1 W, 10 K. Gave up 1 HR. 2.67
Loaisiga 1 2/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 2 K. 4.63
Holmes (W, 3-0) 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 2 K. 0.64

Game 2: Michael King has been great all year, but maybe he was due for a clunker. Yanks lose 4-2.

The Yanks only had three hits in this game. They took a 2-0 lead in the third inning on a 2-run HR by Giancarlo Stanton (6).

Yankees’ starter Jordan Montgomery gave up a HR in the top of the sixth and Texas had cut the Yanks’ lead to 2-1.

In the seventh, Montgomery gave up a leadoff double. King came in and gave up a walk, but then got a strikeout and a forceout. It looked like King was going to get out of it and would be the dominating King we have seen all year. But then a WP tied the game, and on the next pitch, King gave up a 2-run HR that made it 4-2 Texas, and that turned out to be the final score.

Stanton 2-run HR (6)

Montgomery 6+ IP, 2 R, 4 H, 0 W, 5 K. Gave up 1 HR. 1 HBP 2.90
King (L, 2-1; BS, 1) 1 1/3 IP, 2 R, 2 H, 1 w, 3 K. Gave up 1 HR. 1 WP 1.42
Peralta 1 2/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 1 K. 1.80
