06/06/2021



Verdugo, Devers, Renfroe, and Vasquez each had 2 hits. Devers drove in 2 runs that placed him in first place in the American League with 48 total RBIs. He is also in 3rd place in home runs with 15. Bogaerts went 1-for-5, however, he is 5th in the batting race with a .313. JD Martinez was not in the line-up as he is nursing a sore wrist. He is hopeful to start in the final game of the series tonight.

In the Yankees lineup, Aaron Judge went 0-for-3 with a walk. Gleyber Torres was the real start for the Yanks as he hit a two-run homer in the bottom 4th, and hit a sacrifice fly that allowed Judge to score a run.


In Pitching, E-Rod lasted 5.1 innings striking 7 batters. Whitlock, a former Yankee prospect, pitched 1.2 innings while striking out 2. He has been on fire in the mound. His ERA improves to 1.63. However, Workman came in relief in the 9th and did not seem to be in control after getting the second out. Barnes had to finish the job to get the final out to earn himself his 14th save.

On the other side, the Yankees have Taillon. He pitched decently as he also went 5.1 IP. But it was Charlie Green that gave up 4 earned runs that had the fans going crazy on social media.
