Game 65. The “Lasagna” was good. Yanks win 5-0.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

Before his MLB debut tonight, Jonathan Loaisiga already had a nickname that I saw on various sites. “Johnny Lasagna”.

The lasagna was very good tonight.

Loaisiga, who started tonight’s game with only 10 games of minor league experience above Low A ball under his belt, and NONE at the AAA level, pitched five scoreless innings in the Yanks’ 5-0 win tonight, and earned his first MLB victory.

Not only that, but Seattle, down 6-3 to Boston, came back to win 7-6.

Yankees 45-20 — but winning pct. .692
Boston 48-23 —- (tied this way, but.. ) winning pct. .676

Meaning the Yanks have played six less games than Boston, but if the Yanks go 4-2 in those six games, they have a 1 game lead. 3-3 means they are even.

In the third inning, Didi Gregorius hit HR #14 off of ex-Yankee Nathan Eovaldi to put the Yanks up 1-0.

In the sixth, Aaron Judge doubled, went to third on an infield hit by Didi, and scored on a SF by Giancarlo Stanton.

The Yanks put it away in the eighth. With one out, Judge singled. Didi singled and went to second on the throw trying to get Judge at third. Stanton was intentionally walked. After Bird struck out for the second out, Sanchez, dropped to sixth in the lineup because of his slump, doubled to clear the bases.

About time Sanchez went the other way.

Judge 2 hits.
Didi 3 hits, solo HR.
Sanchez 3 RBI.

Minor League Report. 1 -hitter for Charleston.

After last night’s Yankees’ game, Tyler Austin was sent down to make room for tonight’s starter, Jonathan Loaisiga.

AAA: SWB (31-34) won 9-5 in 10 innings. SS Tyler Wade 2 hits, HR, 2 RBI. Wade is finally starting to hit after a rough start to the season (the flu didn’t help). He’s up to .260 now. 3B Brandon Drury 2 hits, double, HR, 3 RBI. .328. 2 hits, RBI 1B Ryan McBroom. C Kyle Higashioka 2 hits, both doubles, RBI.

ICYMI-Boston won their late game in Seattle, 2-1, so the Yanks are 44-20, Boston 48-22. Some places show Boston in 1st place with the Yanks 1 game back, but actually MLB and the Elias sports bureau goes by winning percentage, and there, the Yanks are in first place, .688 to .686. This funky scenario may stay this way until the Yanks are able to make up those six games less that they haven’t played compared to Boston. Put it this way—if the Yanks go 4-2 in those six games they need to make up, then the two teams are tied.

Game 62. Didi and CC lead Yanks to 3-0 win.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

CC Sabathia pitched 5 2/3 scoreless innings, and Didi Gregorius homered twice in the Yanks 3-0 win over Washington Tuesday night.

The win enables the 43-19 Yankees to stay 1/2 game ahead of Boston in the AL East.

The Yanks got two in the second when Didi, with one out homered to make it 1-0. Hicks then walked, and Walker singled Hicks to third, Walker going to second on the throw. Romine’s SF made it 2-0 Yanks.

Didi’s 2nd HR of the game, and #13 on the season, made it 3-0 in the sixth.

Sabathia (W,4-1, 3.27) 5 2/3 IP, 0 R, 4 H, 3 W, 3 K.  1 HBP

Jonathan Loaisiga (already nicknamed Johnny Lasagna) will start Friday for the Yanks. A few things on him. Before this year, never pitched above Low A. 4 starts High A this year, 6 in AA, none more than 5 innings. Nice K/BB ratio this year of 58/4.

Monday’s minors. Cessa starts rehab.

We’ll see how long Tanaka is out, how long Loaisiga will replace him and if Cessa could be in the mix depending how long Tanaka is out. Cessa showed the rust last night.
