"It was unbelievable, " said Didi Gregorius.
NY scored its final run in the seventh when Gregorius doubled, took third on a groundout and scored on Brett Gardner's single up the middle through a drawn-in infield.
It's a mystery, at the moment.
The Yankees were rained out on Thursday afternoon, but they won't skip struggling starter Masahiro Tanaka as a result. Tanaka is 5-3 and has a 2.78 ERA in his wins and a 17.51 ERA in his other starts. Lately, he's been even worse. A pitch that clocks in at 94 or 95 miles per hour after that pitcher has thrown over 97 miles per hour consistently looks much more hittable in the batter's box, but opposing hitters don't have that luxury with Severino, which is part of the reason why he's been so great this season. But I can't just put my head down. "Right now he's in a down stretch and we're looking forward to getting him up and running to what we're used to seeing". Before the rainout, CC Sabathia was scheduled to start the series opener Friday night.
Nationals 5, Mariners 1: Anthony Rendon hit a three-run homer for his eighth of the season, and Tanner Roark allowed a run over seven innings to lead Washington. Girardi said Ellsbury will go on the seven-day concussion disabled list. "We haven't seen Tanaka not being able to make his start".
"He's just in a little rut now that he needs to get out of". He allowed two of Lorenzo Cain's three home runs in NY on May 10, 2016 and allowed two runs and four hits in a five-inning no-decision in Kansas City on August 30.
The postponement gave Tanaka at least one additional day between starts, a routine he's more accustomed to. "It was more like a whiplash", Girardi said.
BALTIMORE - Jose Berrios took a two-hitter into the seventh inning, Kennys Vargas drove in two runs and Minnesota completed its first three-game sweep in Baltimore since 1996.
Rizzo has four homers over his last four games and 11 on the season. "Definitely it's frustrating but I'm trying to get it right".
Struggling ace Masahiro Tanaka had been lined up to start for NY. This is a common practice among pitchers, but it seems pitching coach Larry Rothschild and Tanaka are doing more heavy lifting these days. "It feels good to help the team win with a good outing like this".
Severino can attribute his success this season to his devastating and consistent fastball and the development of a changeup to compliment that fastball and his slider.
