DJ LeMahieu not only prevailed with a homer, he also had a third multi-hit game in a row and extended his series to eight straight plate appearances, before it came to a strike strike in the third on Tuesday.
After LeMahieu's offensive had driven the Yankees to a 4-3 victory over the Blue Jays in the Bronx, Aaron Judge said, "DJ was the MVP for us."
"He does every game and he's great in that runners get in on the base guys, "Judge said. "What he and Gio did [Urshela] when the boys were outside was huge. I am glad that he is in our team. "
LeMahieu and Urshela are in the final fixture for the All-Star game, as well as catcher Gary Sanchez, shortstop Gleyber Torres ̵
"I expect many Yankees to be there, and hopefully anyone who deserves it will make it," LeMahieu said. "It would be cool [to make it]. If it happens, great. "
Sanchez had an interesting ninth inning Tuesday when he saw Aroldis Chapman throw a wild pitch with his second pitch during the night, and then Sanchez was called on the plate after Catcher's intervention with Cavan Biggio.
This left Toronto with the first and second runners and nobody, but Chapman got out and Sanchez made a nice block on a field in the dirt to keep the runners from advancing.
Chapman finished the game with Freddy Galvis in second place.
"He was great all year round," Aaron Boone said of Chapman, who scored his 23rd save, although he allowed his first earned run since 9 May, a 16-¹ / ₃ innings period over 17 games ,
