The Indians and Yanks clash for the 2nd of their 3 game set after the Yankees took game 1 on Friday night. The Indians’ bats continue to stay cold as they let Corey Kluber make them look pretty bad on Friday night.
The Yankees still believe their playoff chances are alive, although they might just have to win every game to get there. Supposedly there was a stat posted that said the Yankees need to go at least 9 – 6 from their last 15 games to actually make it to the post-season. The Yanks’ Michael Kay mentioned that stat on the air last night, but it might still take more than that. 91 wins might not be enough, so we will see about that. Time will tell!
Friday was Jose Ramirez’s 29th birthday and coming into the night he was 7 for 17 on his birthday. He started the game with a single and stole second but was left on the bases in the first inning.
His stolen base gave the team their 97th of the year and that is good enough to be ranked 4th in all of MLB. The Royals, Padres, and Marlins are 1-2-3 and each are over 100+ for the season.
Zach Plesac only made the two mistakes to Gallo and Judge but otherwise, he was in full control of the Yanks on Friday night. Plesac once again got no run support although he has to be used to that by now.
Remember, I mentioned last night that he has been on the wrong side of 3 no-hitters this season. With a low pitch count, Please came out for the 7th inning but after the first two Yanks got on base, it looked like he might be headed for the showers.
The Indians have the old-schooler, Carl Willis, as their pitching coach and he came out to chat with Plesac instead. That didn’t work out so well as Gio Urshela singled to drive in Gallo, the Yanks grabbed a 3 – 0 lead, and that was it for Plesac after his 93rd pitch of the night.
The Tribe bats simply did not show up to support anything and this is why the Tribe will be watching the post-season like the rest of us common folk.
The Yanks got an excellent effort from Corey Kluber on Friday night as he finally went beyond the 4th inning. Kluber had made 3 starts since coming off the IL and had not seen the 5th inning until Friday. Kluber went 6 IP and he threw 95 pitches which also exceeds his pitch count since returning.
Joey Gallo blasted a 2nd inning HR to give the Yanks an early 1 – 0 lead and the Judge blasted a ball to right-center to make it 2 – 0 in the 4th.
A lot of good news came to the team and more good stuff might be coming for the Yanks on the pitching front. Severino is likely going to join the team as early as next week and Jameson Taillon is out of the boot and throwing from the mound again. Also, Domingo German looks as if he might be ready to join the team soon as well.
Brett Gardner welcomed Wittgren to the game after Plesac got pulled with a 3-run bomb to left field to blow the game open at 6 – 0 in the bottom of the 7th.
It’s Donnie baseball Bobble-Head night at Yankee Stadium tonight. The first 18K fans get a Mattingly bobble-head and that is cool!!
