After a shaky game track, in which the Yankees lost eight of eleven games and were no longer in the first place, the bombers could panic. Instead, they rescued the last two games of their four-game set with the White Sox, ending this road trip positively and finishing first in a major three-game series with second place Rays. With reinforcements on the way, this will hopefully mark the beginning of a strong positive push for New York.
Winner of the Game
This was another balanced team effort in which the Yankees were not driven by any outstanding performance. Rather, several solid games led to victory. However, we would do well to highlight a pair of games with four RBIs, courtesy of Austin Romine and Brett Gardner. Both had two hits that made up the bulk of the Yankee runs. Gio Urshela also has to get out of this game and feel a little better. He hopefully shows signs that he has broken his break-in with a double and a single. Next week, James Paxton is scheduled for action, and with six innings of two balls, he's taken a step in the right direction Base and the pitching staff only makes three runs. The worst stroke performance of the day came from Mike Tauchman, who completed only five record appearances, and the worst pitch performance from David Hale, who allowed a solo homer in the eighth inning. Tough draw, guys.
