Game 131. Yanks escape with 5-4 win in 10, finalize Nova deal.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

The Yanks escaped a tricky situation in the bottom of the 10th and beat the Royals 5-4 on Tuesday night.

The win puts the Yanks at 68-63. They are in fourth, 6 1/2 back. They are 3 1/2 out of the final playoff spot, but need to jump four teams.

Aaron Judge got the scoring started in the second inning with his 3rd HR, a 2-run shot. Later that inning, Brett Gardner walked and scored on a double by Jacoby Ellsbury.

Ellsbury had four hits in the game, including the game-winner.

In the third, the Yanks went up 4-0 on singles by Gregorius, Castro and McCann and a SF by Headley.

Tanaka gave up a run in the third, and another in the fourth. A rain delay forced him out of the game after five innings.

KC pecked away, scoring a run in the sixth and another in the eighth.

Meanwhile, the Yanks were blowing scoring chances. They were 2 for 16 w/RISP on the night, and left 13 on.

But in the tenth, they pushed a run across. McCann and Headley singled, and after Judge and Austin each struck out, Gardner walked. An infield single by Ellsbury made it 5-4 Yanks.

Then they escaped. Ben Heller started the 10th by hitting a batter. A SB and single put runners on the corners with no out. A Stolen bases made it 2nd and 3rd, no out.  Heller got a strikeout, then intentionally walked the next batter to load the bases and set up a DP. In came Chasen Shreve, who got a strikeout and flyout to end the game.

Tanaka 5 IP, 2 R, 4 H, 0 walks, 4 K. 3.12
Warren 0 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 0 walks, 0 K. 5.29. (Cubs/NYY) Faced two batters, gave up 2 hits.
Layne (H, 6) 1/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 walks, 0 K. 3.41 (Bos/NYY)
Clippard (H, 18) 1 2/3 IP, 1 R, UNEARNED, 0 H, 2 walks, 1 K. 3.42 (AZ/NYY)
Betances (BS, 4; W, 3-4, 2.15) 2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 walks, 2 K.
Heller (H, 1) 1/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 1 walk, 1 K, 1 HBP. 9.00
Shreve (S, 1) 2/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 walks, 1 K. 5.20

The Yanks finalized the deal for Ivan Nova. From the Pirates, they get:

OF Tito Polo and LHP Stephen Tarpley.

Polo: 22, righty hitting OF, just 5’9″. This year Low and High A combined, .289-16-65, 37 SB. Nice speed, and some pop for a little guy. In 2015, in low A, he only hit .236 with 3 HR but stole 46 bases.

Tarpley: 23, LHP. This year at High A: 6-4, 4.32 in 20 starts. He was 11-4, 2.48 at Low A in 2015.

To show you how weak the free agent class will be this offseason, I read where the best pitcher on the market may very well be: Ivan Nova.
