NEW YORK (AP) – For those who could not see him out there: Didi Gregorius had another big night.
Do The Tyler Austin,
Gregorius married for the fourth game in a row, adding two RBIs to his home league-leading total and went 3-by-3 with two walks to the New York Yankees at the Minnesota Twins 7 -4 in a foggy fog Wednesday for to send her fifth win in a row.
"He's great, he really is," said coach Aaron Boone. "I thought many guys did a lot of good things tonight to help make this victory."
Austin scored a three-round shot and made a brilliant defensive play on first base to stop a Twins rally. With a good performance from Bullpen, New York, Minnesota reached its sixth consecutive defeat – the team's longest skid since a seven-game slide in September 2016.
Dunking racket Miguel Sano launched an early two run-homer for the twins who have lost their seventh street to New York, including last year's AL wildcard game. They have dropped 12 of their last 13 at Yankee Stadium and are counting the postseason.
"They were really tough in our pitching," said Minnesota manager Paul Molitor. "There is not much room for error in this list."
After a rainy day in the Bronx, forcing both teams inside to strike, the game started punctually at 53-degree weather in front of a scattered crowd. In the mid-to-late innings, a damp mist had turned into a dark, spooky fog that dropped to Yankee Stadium, making it feel like a Victorian London.
The game on the field did not seem to be affected much, but late in the game, Yankee's announcer said the fog was so dense that the YES network could not get the beat zone box on the transmission.
"It was quite hard to record some of these flip-flops in the outfield" We could not even see the upper deck, "said Aaron Judge.
Chad Green (2-0) shattered shivering starter Sonny Gray in fifth and got five Outs. Green retired Logan Morrison loaded with the bases to finish the inning.
Morrison, batting .113, also loaded with the bases loaded against Chasen Shreve for second out of seventh., Then Austin sprinted over 90 feet, to create a slipping, shoulder-slung lead over Robbie Grossman's pop-up near the low retaining wall and keep New York's lead at 6-4.
"Just a stand-out game annoyed me," Shreve said Situation. "
David Robertson scored a perfect eighth and Aroldis Chapman closed for his fourth rally, Gregorius attacking from shortstop to make a bar handgame for the final, with the call initially following a repeat review was maintained.
Gregorius had an RBI single in the first, a solo hero in third from Lance Lynn (0 -2) and a motley single to beat the infield shift in the sixth. He leads the majors with 29 RBIs, and all nine of his home runs landed at Yankee Stadium.
"Yes, I'm still down," said Gregorius.
"Try to stay consistent," he added. "I have a lot of homeruns, but it's not like I'm going out there trying to meet them, I'm not the power guy."
Austin waits for his appeal for a suspension for charging the hills during a brawl April 11 with Boston. The rookie, who was still eligible to play, heated a 5-2 lead in the third round of New York and doubled later.
Judge and Giancarlo Stanton each had a sacrificial fly. Gleyber Torres received two goals and scored two goals.
"We won the game because of TA," said catcher Austin Romine. "He becomes a power up there on the plate."
Lynn allowed six runs and seven hits over 3 2/3 innings in his fourth start for the Twins.
"They use virtually every mistake that feels," he said.
Minnesota needs a new arm in the Bullpen, which could provide relief for a long time, and plans to nominate right-hander Tyler Kinley for Thursday and make a corresponding roster.
Twins: Lynn rolled his left ankle as he set up a fourth-inning comebacker. He threw a precise throw on the plate, but continued limping and stayed in the game for two more doughs. "I'm sure he'll be treated, we do not expect him to miss any time," Molitor said. … Gold Glove CF Byron Buxton did not play as planned in the extended spring training and instead left his left big toe empty. Buxton is on the disability list due to migraine symptoms retroactive to April 15, but he fouled a ball from his foot on Sunday during a class A rehab job at Fort Myers. It's unclear if he can be back in the lineup this weekend against Cincinnati.
Yankees: Gray took a fifth inning line drive from the back of his pitching arm, near his shoulder. But he seemed to be alright and took four more punches before he was drafted. … 3B Brandon Drury (severe migraine) had two singles and scored twice in a rehab game with Triple-A Scranton / Wilkes-Barre.
LHP Jordan Montgomery (2-0, 3.80 ERA) Pitches Thursday afternoon when New York plays four rounds on Judge's birthday. Montgomery, unbeaten in his last nine starts, was tagged for six earned runs and seven hits over six innings at a loss in Minnesota last year. Twins RHP Kyle Gibson (1-1, 4.29) is 1-4 with a 9.31 ERA in six career starts against the Yankees.
