They've allowed three runs or fewer in all seven games, and have pitched at least six innings in six of the seven starts. "So we got as many righties as we could today".
Extending their record to 9-4 on the season, the team needed only ten hits to put away the Chicago White Sox (6-6) in a game that the Yankees never were behind.
Judge added a run-scoring infield single to complete the third-inning outburst for NY, which has won its first seven home games for the first time since 1998. The 6-foot-6 lefty was an afterthought in spring training until he kept getting hitters out with his deceptive delivery and his arsenal of finesse pitches.
But the Yankees love his poise, and indeed it's worth noting that he pitched eight shutout innings in a 2-0 win in the College World Series as a freshman for SC.
Brewers starter Chase Anderson (2-0) pitched five innings of three-run, seven-hit ball to pick up the victory. Aroldis Chapman gave up a single in two-thirds of an inning and earned his fourth save.More news: Pence On North Korea: 'Era Of Strategic Patience Is Over'
Behind blasts from Ryan Braun (who went 3-for-4), Jett Bandy and Eric Thames, the Brewers increased their total to 25 home runs in 14 games and pulled ahead of the New York Mets into the National League lead in the category. Starlin Castro had 16 hits, six RBI and five runs coming out of the weekend, while Chase Headley was right there as well with 16 hits, 11 runs and two homers.
After striking out later in the at-bat, Frazier left the game.
Judge added a run-scoring single to complete the third-inning outburst for NY. The left-hander allowed one hit over six scoreless innings last time out in Cleveland. "I'm sure he'll think about that, but that's ok", Girardi said. "I have to adjust to that". Still, manager Joe Girardi insisted the team views Bird as an everyday player.
Despite breaking out of his slump Sunday night with a huge game at the plate, Yankees 1B Greg Bird was left on the bench in favor of Chris Carter. "So we got as many righties as we could today". Renteria said Frazier was feeling better, though, and finally able to keep food down. Bench coach Joe McEwing, known for his boundless enthusiasm, went to the mound to remove Holland in an animated pitching change. Since the shortstop started the season on the DL with a right shoulder problem suffered while playing second base for the Netherlands in the WBC, the Yankees haven't had their regular lineup for one game yet. He is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment soon. The right-hander made 13 major league relief appearances a year ago.
Headley has a.395 batting average and the Yankees take an eight-game winning streak into their Tuesday meeting with the White Sox. Montgomery's seven strikeouts were the most by a Yankee in an Major League Baseball debut since Luis Severino in 2015 (also seven).
