New York Yankees
The Yankees were on the verge of losing a tough one on Friday night. Michael Pineda had been great and the bullpen matched his effort.
The Cubs had four hits but two of them were home runs.
The Yankees, meanwhile, had eight hits and no runs to show for them. Kyle Hendricks wriggled himself out of jams all night and New York hit into three double plays. Jason Heyward also threw out Starlin Castro at the plate in the second inning.
But Brett Gardner erased all of that with one swing in the ninth, a three-run homer to give New York the lead and the win.
Chicago’s old friend Aroldis Chapman shut the Cubs down in the ninth for his seventh save.
Jordan Montgomery makes his fifth career start in the second game of this exciting series.
And Montgomery could give the Cubs problems. I’ve praised him here before and I will again. He’s got excellent command of three, four pitches and a maturity well beyond his years.
He really understands how to approach batters.
He didnt’ quite make it through five in his first start but since then he’s gone six, six, and five without allowing more than three runs in any. The Cubs will have to be good to beat him.
Brett Anderson’s numbers in 2017 had looked good before the Phillies bombed him for seven runs in and inning and a third earlier this week.
That disaster outing brought his ERA up three runs, to 6.23.

Free New York Yankees vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction: Montgomery impresses the Wrigley crowd, gets win on the road.
The Yankees won’t wait around for a three-run job in the ninth tonight. Look for some early runs against Anderson and five gritty innings out of their rookie to guarantee themselves at least a split of this four-gamer.
