PINSTRIPE ALLEY - The Yankees roster may not be as well built as it could have been
NY DAILY NEWS - Forget the cold, Yankees have bigger concerns...
Full game summary coming.
It's hard to "watch" on GameCast. It's like this: "The Yanks are winning!" Then, "Oh no it's tied." Followed by "Winning!" and then, "Noooooooo..." It is a long, slow, and tortuous to "watch" a game.
Tonight they blew leads of 2-0 and 4-2. It seemed that after that, they weren't in the game. Once they went down 7-5 in the top of the 5th inning, they stopped hitting. Tyler Austin, Ronald Torreyes (with 2) , and Aaron Hicks all had singles. That was the offense.
Sonny Gray didn't last through the fourth inning...
The Yankees are now 9-9. Ugggg.
CC Sabathia returned to the mound on Thursday night, having been on the disabled list with a hip injury. He was on a short leash, but had a good outing, despite some missteps by his teammates. Everyone contributed on offense for the Yankees and Aaron Judge continued to hit historic homers, becoming the fastest to 61 as the Yankees beat the Blue Jays 4-3 in the Bronx.
CC started the game strong, sitting down the first three batters he faced. He started the second inning with a walk, but retired the next three batters to keep Toronto hitless.
The Yankees drew first blood in the second. Gary Sanchez started the inning with a single to right. Aaron Hicks grounded into a force out at second and Neil Walker drove a double off the wall in right, putting runners on second and third. Tyler Wade grounded out to second, plating Hicks for the first run of the night. Ronald Torreyes knocked a single to left and the Yankees held a 2-0 lead.
Full game summary coming, but this looks like a good win! (I am away and have to "watch" when I can through ESPN GameCast.)
I am encouraged that Judge hit another homer.
I love the fact that Chapman struck out the side in the 9th.
Now, if the Yankees can only build off this!
