AA Somerset’s playoff series resumes tonight. Game 2 of Eastern League Semifinals. Somerset is up 1 game to 0.

Game 142. Judge hits 2 HR (now has 57) in Yanks’ 7-6 win over Boston.

Aaron Judge kept up the pace (he’s on pace for 65) for being the new AL and Yankees’ single season HR champ, hitting two HR last night to put him 4 behind Roger Maris’ AL and Yankee record of 61. There are 20 games left.

The Yankees’ (86-56) 7-6 win in 10 innings means that their magic # for clinching the AL East is now 15. It is 9 for clinching a playoff berth (you may see 10 but the Yankees own the tiebreaker due to head-to-head record against Baltimore).

Despite Judge’s HR, it took a bases-loaded double by Gleyber Torres and some relief by Wandy Peralta to win the game for the Yankees in the tenth.

Yankees’ starter Gerrit Cole only gave up 4 hits, but 3 of them were HR. In the bottom of the second inning, he gave up a 2-run HR to Triston Casas, and Boston was up 2-0. (None of the 3 HR Cole gave up were to Rafael Devers, who owns Cole).

Marwin Gonzalez tied the game for the Yankees in the top of the third inning with a 2-run HR (5). But Cole gave up a HR to Reese McGuire in the bottom of the third and Boston went back on top, 3-2.

Judge hit HR #56 to tie the game in the top of the sixth, but in the bottom of the sixth, Xander Bogaerts sliced a HR around the Pesky Pole to put Boston up 4-3.

One thing about the Pesky Pole. Many people, including sportscasters, have it all wrong. They act as if it is named that because Johnny Pesky hit a lot of HR around that pole. WRONG. Boston SS/3B Johnny Pesky hit 17 HR IN HIS WHOLE CAREER, 13 with Boston and 4 as a Detroit Tiger. It is named the Pesky Pole because his name was actually John Michael Paveskovich. He was Polish. The Pesky Pole is because of his ethnicity, not his HR ability.

Judge tied the game up with HR #57 leading off the top of the eighth inning. 4-4.

To extra innings and that blasted ghost runner. Isiah Kiner-Falefa was the ghost runner at second for the Yankees. Aaron Hicks PH for Jose Trevino and walked, but Gonzalez GIDP. With a runner on third and two out, Boston, of course, intentionally walked Judge. But Giancarlo Stanton also walked, and he was then PR for by Estevan Florial. Torres cleared the bases with his double to put the Yanks up 7-4.

Boston got a HBP in the bottom of the tenth to have runners on first and second with no one out. Clay Holmes got a K, but then was relieved by Wandy Peralta. Wandy escaped, but barely. A single made it 7-5. Then a flyout for out #2. One strike away from a win, Peralta threw a WP to make it 7-6 and put the tying run on second. He then got a swing and a miss to end the game.

Judge 3 hits, 2 RBI. Two solo HR (57) He is now hitting .310 with 123 RBI.
Judge Leads MLB in 9 categories, and the AL in a 10th. Stop talking Ohtani MVP. It’s Judge.
Ohtani’s team is 61-81. What, you are penalizing Judge because he doesn’t pitch as well? C’mon.
Without Judge, the Yanks aren’t in first place. With Ohtani, the Angels are still in fourth. Enough said.

Torres 3 RBI
Gonzalez 2-run HR (5)

Cole 6 IP, 4 R, 4 H, 2 W, 10 K. Gave up 3 HR 3.30
Cole has 228 K, 20 behind Guidry’s Yankee record of 248 in 1978.

Before the game, Jose Trevino off the paternity list, Ben Rortvedt sent down.






Game 141. Yanks have a cushion after 10-4 win over Rays.

As Yogi said, “it ain’t over ’til it’s over.” The 1964 Phillies blew a 6 1/2 game lead with 12 games left in the season. The 2004 Yankees blew a 3-0 lead in a best-of-7 series. The 2007 Mets blew a 7-game lead with 17 games left. You don’t count your chickens until they are hatched.

But with yesterday’s 10-4 win over Tampa Bay, coupled with the 10-3 win on Saturday, the Yankees (85-56) opened up a 5 1/2 game lead with 21 games to go. Had the Rays swept the Yankees this weekend instead of only winning the first game, the lead would have been down to 1 1/2 games and the pressure really would have been on after having once had a 15 1/2 game lead.

There are other things finally turning in the Yankees’ favor after almost two months of things going sour. For one, the Rays have some 15 of their 24 remaining games against Toronto and Houston, making it that much more difficult to catch the Yankees for the division title. Toronto sits 6 back of the Yankees, and just 1/2 game behind Tampa Bay. Seattle is in a virtual tie with Tampa Bay. So those three teams are jockeying for 4-5-6 playoff position.

You will see that the Yankees have magic numbers of 18 for the division and 11 for a playoff spot. Actually, it is one less number for each because the Yankees own the tiebreakers.

Another thing in the Yankees’ favor is that the cavalry is on its way. Four Yankees started rehab assignments with AA Somerset yesterday (see other post). Yes, rust may be a factor, but hopefully they come back healthy and refreshed.

Lastly, something you will see in the game recap. The bats of Giancarlo Stanton and Gleyber Torres seem to be waking up after long slumbers. This is extremely important. It means that teams just can’t pitch around Aaron Judge. He needs protection. Stanton and Torres hitting provides that protection. Then the Yankees’ offense can go.

As they did on Saturday, the Yankees jumped out early and big. Judge led off the bottom of the first with a single, and Stanton walked. Torres followed with a 3-run HR, #20 on the season, and the Yanks were up 3-0.

Domingo German started the game for the Yankees on short rest because of the rainout and subsequent doubleheader against the Twins a few days ago. He only pitched the first inning as the Yankees went with a bullpen game, using eight pitchers.

Tampa Bay got a run in the top of the second, but the Yanks blew the game open by responding with seven runs in the bottom of that inning. Isiah Kiner-Falefa led off the inning with a walk, Kyle Higashioka walked, and Marwin Gonzalez singled to load the bases. Judge hit a SF to make it 4-1, and Stanton followed with a 3-run HR (26) to make it 7-1. Torres followed with another HR (21) to make it 8-1. Josh Donaldson then walked, and Oswaldo Cabrera hit his first MLB HR to give the Yankees a 10-1 lead.

Cabrera also got another OF assist. When will teams learn not to run on him?

The Rays scored two in the sixth and another in the ninth. Final score 10-4.

Ben Rortvedt, who didn’t get into a game, was sent back to AAA after the game as Jose Trevino will be returning from paternity leave.

Stanton 3 RBI. 3-run HR (26)
Torres 2 hits, 4 RBI. 3-run HR and Solo HR (21) 4th Yankee with 20 or more HR

Game 139. Lead down to 3 1/2 after 4-2 loss to Rays.

Before the game, news regarding C Jose Trevino. He was put on paternity leave. Ben Rortvedt was called up from AAA.

Trevino also is the team nominee for the Roberto Clemente award, given for community service.

With Trevino joining the list of unavailable Yankees due to injury or paternity leave, the lineup was further depleted, and the Yankees (83-56) lost to Tampa Bay 4-2 Friday night. Their lead in the AL East, once 15 1/2, is now 3 1/2.

Even the return of Derek Jeter to Yankee Stadium for the first time in a while didn’t bring any luck.

Some reinforcements back from the IL can’t arrive quickly enough (more on that in a bit), but how good will they be? How rusty?

Yankees’ starter Frankie Montas gave up back-to-back, one out doubles in the first inning, and the Rays were up 1-0.

The Rays got three runs in the fourth, thanks to a couple of misplays by Aaron Hicks, who was then booed mightily and pulled from the game. Harrison Bader can’t arrive soon enough, it seems. I had to laugh and pull a “show me” attitude when Hicks said his goal in spring training was to be a 30/30 guy. Not even close and right now his goal should be just to remain on the team in 2023, which I don’t believe will happen. Hicks contract, with 3 more years to go, is one of the worst in Cashman’s GM history. The Yanks, like they did with Joey Gallo and Sonny Gray, need to know when to cut the cord. As with Gallo and Gray, they’ve stuck with Hicks too long. Once the fans turn on you, you got to go.

With one out in that fourth inning, Ji-Man Choi walked. Montas got the second out, then gave up a single. Wander Franco, just off the IL, and who doubled in the Rays’ first inning rally, doubled again, driving in two runs. Hicks had the ball in his glove at the foul line, but with the side wall approaching, appeared to shy off and dropped it. He thought it was a foul ball and took his time getting the ball back in while two runs scored. Very bad look. Then he misplayed the next drive into another double and the Rays lead went from 1-0 to 4-0. If he makes the first play, the game remains at 1-0. He basically gave away three runs. With the Yankees’ offense compromised, that was like giving away the game. The fans then gave Hicks the “Gallo” treatment, not only booing him but actually chanting “Joey Gallo” at him. It was a bad look and made manager Aaron Boone pull Hicks after the inning.

On top of that, Hicks to that point was 0 for 2, 2 strikeouts, and his batting average dropped to .211.

You can’t have this. The Yanks need to find a taker for him or eat his contract. Like I wrote, when the fans turn on you as they have, you got to go.

This isn’t to be mean at Hicks. It’s just reporting the reality of what happened and what must happen.

The Yanks scored a run in the seventh, thanks to who else? Aaron Judge. Oswald Peraza walked, and with one out, moved to second on a groundout. Judge singled to make the score 4-1.

Kyle Higashioka homered (8) in the bottom of the ninth to make it 4-2. Judge walked with two out in the ninth, but Gleyber Torres, the potential tying run, flied to right to end the game. The ball was caught at the fence.
