Game 19. Monty comes through in Yanks’ win. Warren to DL, and it’s Gleyber time!

Yankee Stadium Frieze

After the stinkeroos that Tanaka and Gray provided the last two games, the Yanks needed a starter to provide some depth to save the bullpen and Jordan Montgomery provided it in a 9-1 Yankees’ win that put their record at 10-9.

They picked up a game on both Toronto (who they beat) and also Boston, who were no-hit out in Oakland.

Before the game, Adam Warren was put on the DL with a back strain and Jonathan Holder was called back up.

Montgomery got out of a bases loaded, one-out jam in the top of the third.

Aaron Judge hit his sixth HR of the season, a 2-run shot, 443 ft., ,in the bottom of the third, to give the Yanks a 2-0 lead. Fastest ever to 62 HR.

In the fifth, Toronto scored to make it 2-1, but the Yanks scored seven in the bottom of the sixth to break it open.

Gardner singled and Judge walked. Didi singled in a run to make it 3-1. Stanton walked to load the bases. Hicks reached on an error to make it 4-1. After Walker struck out, Andujar cleared the bases on a double, 7-1.   Romine walked and Torreyes singled to load the bases. Gardner SF, 8-1, Judge single, 9-1.

Judge 2 for 4, scored 2, drove in 3. HR. Also Walked.
Didi 2 hits. Scored one, drove in one, walked.
Andujar 2 hits, 3 RBI. Getting hot. Raised average from .107 to .250

Montgomery (W, 2-0, 3.80) 6 IP, 1 R, 4 H, 3 W, 5 K.
Shreve 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 2 K. 0.00
Holder 2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 2 K. 11.57

Later, it was revealed that Gleybor Torres has been called up for Sunday. No corresponding move made but I would guess Tyler Wade (3 for 35) has been sent down.

Prayers go out to Daniel Faraquar of the White Sox who pitched Friday night, came into the dugout and collapsed with a brain hemorrhage. Stable but critical.

Severino on Sunday, with Gleyber most likely in the lineup.

Game 11. Yanks embarrassed, 14-1.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

Before the game, a couple of moves. The Yanks brought up OF Shane Robinson and DFA’d Jace Peterson.

They also made a minor league move, trading with the Mets and getting L.J. Mazzilli, Lee’s kid, for OF Kendall Coleman. A righty bat, Mazzilli, 27, has mostly played 2B, and spent most of last year in AA. In 110 games between AA/AAA last year, he hit .254-5-40. He was suspended a few years back for 50 games for a drug violation. Coleman, 22, a lefty hitting OF, has barely made it up to low A Charleston, and has struggled to a .207 average in his minor league career.

The pitching duel was between the CYA runnerup last year, Chris Sale, and Luis Severino, who finished third.

Seve didn’t have it (a friend told me that Rick Sutcliffe on ESPN suggested that Severino was tipping his pitches) and the bullpen was horrible, giving up nine in the sixth, in a 14-1 Yankees’ loss that dropped them under .500 to 5-6 on the season.

Meanwhile, after an Opening Day loss, Boston has won nine in a row and are 4 1/2 up on the Yanks.

An Aaron Judge HR (3) was the only highlight of the night. He had 3 hits. Didi had 2.

After two strikeouts, Giancarlo Stanton had a single and double, hopefully signs he is snapping out of it. One article I read yesterday suggested that Stanton is like Teixeira in that both would always get off to slow starts, then heat up.

But you have to wonder when Gary Sanchez will be dropped in the lineup or when he’ll wake up. Batting fourth or fifth all year, Sanchez is now 2 for 36.

Tyler Wade is only at .136. If Gleyber Torres heats up, you have to wonder if there could be a switch there. Miguel Andujar is struggling at .125. An Andujar error led to six unearned runs. The kid’s aren’t alright.

Too many grand slams given up. I can remember Robertson gave one up in Toronto, Holder in the extra inning loss at home to Baltimore, and now Shreve last night.

Severino (L, 2-1, 3.50) 5 IP, 5 R, 8 H, 3 W, 6 K.
Kahnle 2/3 IP, 5 R, 3 ER, 2 H, 3 W, 0 K. 7.11
Shreve 1 1/3 IP, 4 R, 0 ER, 1 H, 1 W, 3 K. 0.00. Gave up grand slam.
Cessa 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K. 0.00

Not much more to say about this game. It was a stinker.

 

 

 

 

Minor league report. Tampa tosses a 1-hitter. Big day for Hess at Low A.

I am amazed how, 10 games into the season, some Yankees’ fans are criticizing Aaron Boone and Phillies’ fans Gabe Kapler. Some of the Phillies’ players are already ripping Kapler.

These are new rookie managers. 10 games? Really?

As far as Boone goes, I haven’t seen anything to criticize him on yet. For one thing, he can’t control the injuries that have hampered him. For another, it’s not his fault some guys haven’t performed yet (Sanchez 2 for 32 and Stanton 7 for 42 with 20 strikeouts, also the bullpen has been shaky and that was supposed to be a strength).

Give it more time. Criticizing Boone after 10 games? Really?

Game 9. Yanks make DL moves, win 8-3.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

After last night’s game, not everyone escaped unharmed. The Yanks had to make some moves before today’s game.

CC: 10 day DL, sore hip.
Drury: 10 day DL, migraines. So Miguel Andujar will have the chance over the next few days to show what he can do.
Holder: back to minors because of workload Friday and ineffectiveness.

Cessa: brought up b/c bullpen burned out in 14 inning game Fri. night. Pitched sat.
German: brought up
Jace Peterson: Brought up to replace Drury. Made great catch (see below) on Sat. Started Saturday’s game in LF.

Aaron Hicks is expected off the DL on Tuesday.

Jacoby Ellsbury saw a specialist about the hip.

Now for Saturday’s game, which the Yanks won 8-3 to put their record at 5-4 (now for Boston to start losing, and what better time than this coming week when the Yanks visit Fenway?)

The Yanks got two in the second. Andujar singled and with two out, Torreyes doubled. Gardner singled in two.

Baltimore tied it in the third on a two-run double by Manny Machado. They went up 3-2 in the fourth.

The Yanks tied it in the fifth when Torreyes (3 hits) singled, Gardner walked, both moved up on a WP and Judge got an rbi groundout.

Jace Peterson made a great play in the top of the sixth to save a couple of runs.

The Yanks got two in the sixth on a walk to Didi, single by Austin and SF by Andujar that put the Yanks up 4-3. A single by Peterson and WP put runners on second and third, then Romine’s bloop single off of Chris Davis’ glove made it 5-3, Yankees.

In the top of the seventh, David Robertson came in with men on second and third with one out and Houdini got two strikeouts to get out of it.

The Yanks put the game away in the bottom of the seventh. Gardner walked and Judge doubled in a run. Stanton flied out, moving Judge to third. Didi was walked but stole second, and Tyler Austin singled in two runs.

After a long, 14-inning loss Friday night, the Yanks needed some depth from the starter and they got it.

Gray (W, 1-0, 3.60) 6 IP, 3 R, 4 H, 2 w, 4 K.
Warren (H, 1) 1/3 IP, 0 R, 2H, 0 W, 0 K. 3.38
Robertson (H, 2), 1 2/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 4 K. 6.35
Cessa 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 2 K. 0.00

Gardner 2 hits, 2 RBI, 2 walks.
Judge 2 RBI
Austin 2 hits, 2 RBI
Torreyes 3 hits.
