“We play today. We won today. Das It, “was Duncan’s message.
Nearly a quarter-century later, the Yankees’ motto should be “Gerrit Cole Pitch” today. We won today. Slave. ”
Even on Saturday afternoon, Cole was not the winning pitcher in the 8-4 win over the Rays in the first of two seven at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Tropa.
With the Yankees pitcher issuing nine moves and striking out a batsman, the Rays took the night game to 5-3.
Left-handed hitter Mike Ford batted for Giancarlo Stanton in the sixth inning of the second game against Lt. Jakon Beeks which was a strong indication that something was wrong with Stanton.
Opener Mike King took 5 wickets in 3 Mike innings and Luis Avillon took two wickets in one-third innings. Avilan also scored a two-run single for Austin Meadows in the fourth when Kiran equalized 1–1.
In his major league debut, Albert Abreu made a move, struck out a batsman and gave Kevan Smith a two-run single that extended the hosts’ lead to 5-1 in the fifth.
After the top of the fifth, Aaron Boone was dismissed by plate umpire Vic Carapazza. The Yankees’ dugout was shown to throw hard up at Rice pitchers and rip Yankee Hitler.
The division left the Yankees with a 10–5 record. They have lost three of four and will try to pull out of Florida with a four-game series split on Sunday when the struggling James Paxton (0-1, 13.50 ERA) faces Charlie Morton.
In the first game, a colo from qualifying for what would have been their 20th straight win was eliminated by Boone after Jose Martinez gave up a two-run homer, which extended the Yankees’ lead to 5-3. Cole needed a season-high 107 pitches to go 4 ₃ / in innings, giving up three runs, giving up six hits and scoring 10 runs. The Yankees are 4–0 in Cole’s four starts.
“Good and bad. I felt the fastball’s location got better. Obviously the pitch count went up there and we couldn’t finish the outing the way we wanted.” But some kind of across the board There was an improvement so I’ll try and take it. ”
When the hosts did not score a goal, Boon credited Bole as a rot hitter during the first four frames.
“Credit to them, they made her work clearly and really increased her count,” Boone said. “They were able to get a man on base. It seemed like every innings. I felt that he was pretty quick overall because of not getting all five.”
An RBI double by G-Man Choi in the fifth was followed by Martinez’s two-run homer and a sudden 5–0 lead was reduced to a two-run pillow and Boone calling for Chad Green.
“Finally a couple of mistakes to get him through the cost [five]. I felt that the other side at least made him tough on him when I thought he was too fast, ”said Boone, who used Adam Ottavino for the seventh to give the two-game losing streak a win. Taken, however briefly.
After losing 1-0 on Friday night and not touching home plate in the last 13 innings, the Yankees edged out gas-throwing right-hander Tyler Glasowe in the third inning on Saturday.
Boone placed the left-handed hitting Ford in third order between Aaron Judge and Stanton and he crushed a two-run homer on a fastball that traveled 437 feet. Gio Urshella added a two-run single with two runs to end Glasgow’s day.
Stanton scored the fifth and the judge’s eighth homer gave up two runs while finishing sixth.
“The game plan for that is you have to be on the heater all the time,” Ford said of Glasgow, whose fastball reached 98 mph in the second inning. “He obviously has an electric fastball and a great breaking ball. This heater, for me, lasted the entire game. ”
