New York Yankees
The Yanks came through for Michael Pineda at the end, erasing a 3-1 deficit to take a 6-3 lead and then blow it open after that.
Pineda went six innings and gave up three runs, which is noteworthy against the Houston offense. He was down after five innings but New York rallied in the sixth. Four RBI singles accounted for five runs and then Pineda threw a crucial shutdown inning.
Then Brett Gardner stepped in the box for a 3-2 pitch with two outs and the bases loaded in the seventh and hit one over the fence. The grand slam made it 10-3.
The Stros added a run in the eighth but New York leads 10-4 in the ninth.
Saturday will be a matchup between two rookies. Francis Martes starts for Houston against Jordan Montgomery.
Martes has made three starts and one appearance out of the bullpen this season and has an ERA of 5.51. He’s given up just less than a hit per inning but he’s walked 11 batters in 16.1 innings.
He will run into trouble against the Yankees if he’s putting guys on base without forcing them to swing.
Jordan Montgomery continues to pitch well past his age and his experience level this season for New York. The rookie out of South Carolina is 6-4 with a 3.53 ERA and 1.21 WHIP.
He’s remarkably consistent and seems to always give his team a chance to win. His losses are usually a result of little run support.
