NEW YORK – Aaron Judge created a game-winning singles on the eve of his arbitration performance, including a four-run ninth inning, which ended in a 7-6 draw for Aaron Hicks with a three-run homer near Ryan Presley at the New York Yankees. Houston beat the Astros on Thursday night.
While batting twice against Rene Stanek, the judge smoked a 3-0 splitter in the left corner to give Jose Trevino a goal from second base. The Yankees had their ninth walk-off victory in 70 games this season – their highest since 1943 – and it was not possible when they entered the final inning with just two hits.
New York started a much-anticipated four-game series between the top two teams in the American League, winning 22 games 19 times and improving to 52-18 – the third-best 70-game start in the Majors since 1930.
New York extended their home winning streak to 15 games, the team’s longest series since 1961.
The Yankees equalized for a major league lead on Thursday with 20 comeback wins. The number 21 may be the most memorable.
Giancarlo Stanton, who hit a three-run homer to Homer in the first inning, took the ninth lead against Presley, and Gleber Torres drew another draw when the plate appeared in which Torres had an eye, causing a long delay. .
The switch-hitting Hicks then dug in from the left and undoubtedly crushed to the right, the third hit of the night for the Yankees and the first after Stanton’s Homer. This was Hicks’ third homer of the season.
Isiah Kiner-Falefa then hit No. 4, an infield single shortstop was stopped by Mauricio Dubon by diving, but then another was thrown in an attempted steal – a close call was maintained by a replay.
Trevino then created a single, prompting manager Dusty Baker to pull Presley (1-2). Trevino added a two-run homer in the eighth inning of a 5-4 win at Tampa Bay on Wednesday night.
Presley, a two-time All-Star, made 18 career appearances, including a post-season, with an ERA of 5.71 against the Yankees.
Stanek walks over to DJ Lemahieu, then the judge goes down 3-0 as fans shout at the slugger “MVP!” That said. Spell
Miguel Castro (4-0) wins.
Next: An unusual in-season arbitration hearing on Friday – the rules are usually made in the off-season but were postponed from day one due to the game’s labor lockdown. Judges are demanding a salary of $ 21 million, while New York has offered $ 1.7 million before reaching the free agency last season.
The judge said earlier this week that he was looking forward to the hearing. It’s easy to see why.
It leads the major companies with 27 home runs and is fifth with 53 RBIs.
Astros’ Alex Bragman and Stanton exchanged three-run homers in the first inning, and Houston’s Jordan Alvarez broke another three-run drive against Yankees starter Jameson Talon in the third inning.
Frember Valdez stabilized himself after a rocky first inning, with Jose Altuv and right-back Kyle Tucker plundering a potential homer for Houston in the eighth inning, but rare for the Astros Major’s leading Bulpen. At night ,
Stanton became the first player to be knocked out of Valdez’s elite curveball this season, and then the left-hander was thrown off his best pitch – for the best results. With a large dose of sinkers, Valdez scored seven runs in six innings, just three runs from two shots in the first inning.
Valdez looked eager to go deep into the game until Anthony Rizzo walked the 16-pitch in the sixth inning. Valdez was pulled after 101 pitches.
Hector Neris is seventh and Tucker helped Rafael Montero to eighth. After Judge Third Baseman reached for Bregman’s error, Rizzo smoked a two-run homer as he thought fit. While Rizzo is jogging first, Tucker jumps over the wall and grabs a line drive for a third.
Talon allowed season-high six after being disrupted for several years due to health issues. Houston had 10 shots in 5 2/3 innings against the right-handed batsman.
Fans angry over baseball tournament renewal – Houston has removed the Yankees from three post seasons since 2015, including their scandal-ridden 2017 World Series run.
The Bronx fans rejoiced when Talon knocked Altuv out of the game, but when Braigman turned his homer to the left later, they returned to their seats. The silence ended when Stanton resisted his drive to the bottom of the left.
Alvarez, who made two home runs against the Mets on Wednesday night, finished third with a short line of 113 mph on the small right-field porch of Yankee Stadium. Alvarez has 22 homers behind the judges for a major league lead.
