Tampa, 21-21 in the second half, is just 1/2 game back in the Florida State League North. They finished fifth, 28-38, in the first half.

Charleston, 19-23 in the second half, is in fourth place in the South Atlantic League South. They were 37-33, third place, just a 1/2 game out, in the first half.

 

Game 105. Yanks get badly need win, 9-6.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

The Yanks (67-38) got a badly needed win, and badly needed decent start from Domingo German in beating Boston Sunday night, 9-6.

Before the game, a few happenings. CC Sabathia went on the IL. No corresponding pitching move yet, instead INF Tyler Wade was brought up for now.

As far as pitching, cross off Marcus Stroman. Toronto wanted Yanks’ prospect Deivi Garcia, and Garcia is off limits unless the Yanks got someone like Noah Syndergaard from the Mets in return, and the Mets, with their Yankeephobia, won’t deal with the Yanks even if the Yanks do have the better prospects to give. So who DOES Stroman go to? The Mets, for two prospects.

So with the trade deadline getting closer, the Yanks are still looking, and they, justifiably so, are saying “No” to offers that would have them giving up Garcia or Gleyber Torres.

We will see if the Yanks get ANYBODY.

After seven games in a row in which a Yankee starter couldn’t give five innings, Domingo German gave 5 1/3 in winning his 13th game of the season.

The Yanks got on the board first in the third inning when Cameron Maybin walked and Austin Romine hit a 2-run HR (3), a 446-ft. bomb.

In the fourth, Luke Voit walked and Didi Gregorius hit a 2-run HR (7) to put the Yanks up 4-0.

German gave up a 2-run HR to Andrew Benintendi in the bottom of the fourth that cut the lead to 4-2.

The Yanks scored two in the sixth to go up 6-2. Gregorius walked and was forced at second by Gleyber Torres. Gio Urshela doubled in Torres. Maybin singled in Urshela.

Boston got a run in the bottom of the sixth to make it 6-3 and in the process, knocked out German.

In the top of the seventh, Aaron Hicks walked, and after Aaron Judge struck out, Edwin Encarnacion doubled Hicks to third. Luke Voit walked to load the bases. Didi Gregorius flied out, not deep enough for a SF but two runs scored on a two-base throwing error by Jackie Bradley. 8-3.

Things got hairy after that as the Yanks bullpen finished the game, but didn’t exactly nail it down. It was nail-biting time.

Boston got one in the seventh to make it 8-4, and stranded men on second and third.

The Yanks got one in the top of the eighth to make it 9-4 when Maybin doubled, went to third on a groundout and scored on a WP.

Boston had the bases loaded and one out in the eighth off of Zack Britton, but couldn’t score. They did get two in the ninth off of Aroldis Chapman before the game finally ended, 9-6 Yankees.

Whew. It sure would be nice to see a 1-2-3 from Britton or Chapman sometime. They seem to always make you sweat it out.

With the win, the Yanks are 8 1/2 up on Tampa Bay and 9 up on Boston. They have Monday off.

Rough night for Aaron Judge, 0 for 5 with 3 strikeouts.

Encarnacion 2 hits.
Gregorius 2-run HR (7)
Urshela 2 hits, RBI (.309)
Maybin 2 hits, RBI (.315)
Romine 2-run HR (3)

German (W, 13-2, 4.08) 5 1/3 IP, 3 R, 4 H, 1 W, 9 K.  Gave up 1 HR.
Kahnle (H, 20) 1 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 0 W, 2 K.  2.74
Ottavino 2/3 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 0 W, 0 K.  1.57
Britton 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 2 W, 1 K.  2.51
Chapman 1 IP, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 H, 1 W, 2 K.  2.66.

Three Yankees made the top 100 of MLB’s top prospects list last week. Garcia at #66, Estevan Florial at #67 and recently signed 16 yr. old Jasson Dominguez at #72.

Minor League Report. Deivi so-so in SWB loss. Tampa’s Stephan throws a 7-inning no-hitter. Gil impresses again.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

AAA: With trade rumors swirling as we approach the trade deadline, I wonder how many scouts were in attendance to watch Deivi Garcia? How many not only here but elsewhere (see Luis Gil below) checking out players for a possible deal?

SWB (60-44) lost 4-2. 1B Mike Ford 2 hits, solo HR.

Deivi Garcia (AAA L, 1-1, 5.14) 6 IP, 4 R, 6 H, 2 W, 4 K. Gave up 2 HR.

Garcia is just 20, the youngest player in AAA. For the season, A+-AA and AAA, he is 5-6, but with a 3.38 ERA and 128 K in 82 2/3 IP.

AA: Trenton (55-47) won 2-1. CF Ben Ruta 2 hits. DH Mandy Alvarez 2 hits, RBI.

Starter Nick Nelson (W, 5-2, 2.91) 6 1/3 IP, 1 R, 3 H, 3 W, 8 K.
Lane (H, 4) 1 2/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 0 K.  1.89
Kriske (S, 9) 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 1 W, 1 K.  1.54

High A: Tampa (46-57) swept a DH, and Trevor Stephan hrew a 7-inning no-hitter in the regularly scheduled game. (Minor league DHs are 7-inning games)

Reg. Sched. Game: Won 2-0. LF Pablo Olivares 2 hits. DH Alexander Palma 2-run HR for the only runs of the game. SS Diego Castillo 2 hits. 3B Wilkerman Garcia 2 hits.

Trevor Stephan (W, 1-3, 5.48) 7 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 9 K. Only an error by 1B Stephen Sensley kept this from being a perfect game.

Makeup of 7/25 rainout: Won 4-3. CF Estevan Florial 2 hits, 2 RBI. 2B Oswaldo Cabrera 2 RBI.

Luis Gil (W, 1-0, 3.00) 6 IP, 2 R, 4 H, 2 W, 5 K.
Blanton (S, 1) 1 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 0 W, 2 K.  3.24

Gil is 21, RHP. Between Low A Charleston and High A Tampa, 5-5, 2.43 this season. 117 K in 89 innings. Besides Deivi Garcia, another kid to keep an eye on.

Low A: Charleston (51-54) lost 4-3. CF Brandon Lockridge 3 hits, RBI.

Here is hoping the very young Deivi Garcia and also Luis Gil continue to develop. Could both be future rotation fixtures? Let’s hope the Yanks develop these kids well. Hopefully they won’t have to be included in a deal.

Sympathies to the Angels and the family of LHP Tyler Skaggs. The Angels’ pitcher was found dead in his hotel room in Texas. No cause of death revealed, but there is no indication of foul play or suicide. Tragic. He was just 27.

Yanks / Mets tonight at Citi Field. You just hope the Yanks are over the jet lag.
