A 3-Peat

with 7 comments

All things considered  it was a good weekend as the Yanks split  the doubleheader, and the series with TitleTown 2 games apiece..

  After blowing one game, stealing another and splitting the Sunday twin bill by the exact same 3-0 score, the Yanks pulled out of Boston still  3.5 games behind the Punchless and Judy Red Sox…

The only difference, the Bombers will now head to Minnesota as a third place team with Tampa Bay moving ahead of them by a half game in the standings, and 1 game in the loss column

A win in the nightcap over the usually Yankees are my Daddy David Price would have evened Boston in the loss column, but the tired bats and a circus catch  by Bradley Jr made Price look better then he really was, as Boston returned the 3-0 favor ..

Sabathia was great in game 1, yes a 6 inning, 2 hit, no  runs, 5 BB, 97-57 outing is considered great thanks to  the pitching bar dropping so low even 300 pounds of joy Sabathia can leap over it..

CC in his 2nd start  after  5 week DL managed to keep Boston off the board… He had a shaky first inning, but the 2 for 51 w/RISP Red Sox helped every way  they  could thanks to Benintendi’s fielder’s choice and Young’s DP after Sabathia opened the affair giving up a pair of walks..

Sabathia also  gave up  a double and a walk in the 2nd but the hapless Boston offense once again allowed CC to wiggle out of trouble..

A 1-2-3 third, a walk in the 4th, another walk and a single in 5th, and a 1-2-3 6th  capped his day.. Nice Job big Man  see you in 5..

With Aaron Judge mired in a 1-18 post All Star game slump, don’t let anybody tell  you the HR Derby and being Rob Manfred’s Arm Candy all  week long didn’t affect the Yanks best player because it did..

Judge would have gone 0 for Boston but he did manage an infield single in game 1.. To his credit he hit a Bomb to  center field, Fenway’s deepest part of the pool in the 8th inning of game two that Bradley robbed by leaping above the fence.. Judge’s 31st HR ended up in Bradley’s glove and Boston continued to whistle past  the graveyard

With Sanchez aboard on a single, the Tater would have scared Price’s shut-out, persevered the shut-out streak which died on the vine at 89 games, and would have put some heat on Boston’s last 1.2 innings trying to  close out the game up by only 1 run, but thems the breaks..

The 2nd game loss kept the Bombers from winning their first  series in the  last 9, so  they head to  the midwest, then Seattle 0-7-2 in that  category, that’s really bad…

Makes that game one implosion by Chapman sting even more…

The Yanks managed 3 runs in the 18 innings and they  all  came in the 4th  and 5th innings of game one..

Three singles and a sac fly, Gregorius, Romine, Choi and Murderers Toe did the honors… Gregorius went Big Fly in the 5th, hopefully he’s busting out of that  0-18, they’ll need him

We’ll  find out soon if the pen is really back or was it the anemic Boston offense that allowed the pen to pitch 12.1 innings of scoreless base ball over the last 3 games…

Game 1 the Whole 9

Game 2 the Whole 9

  1. Tanaka going 7.2 was also good, Teflon Joe was ready to insert the parking attendants as relievers in game 2 with everybody unavailable.. Somehow Shreve managed to get a LHB out, so life is good

    • Judge’s post All Star slide actually started on July 8th vs the Brew Crew, he’s 3 for 25 with 11 K’s from that point… hopefully the Bradley robbery is a sign the worm has turned for #99 who has to carry this bunch, unless the SanBino has another 2016 August in his bones..

    • Lol hey Donny
      Bradley is the best defensive out fielder in baseball, so at least Judge got beat by the best

      Smacking that bomb maybe he’s coming around

      Had he taken the week off, of at least the derby, I bet that ball would have landed in one of the Berkeley practice music rooms Helm probably fell asleep in lol

      But MLB and the yanks needed the arm candy and they wore the kid out

  3. Pork Chop Jones forgot about Shreve coughing up 2 hits vs LHB’s
    and that cost Warren on Sunday. He wasn’t needed but what if he was?

    If she’s gonna sniff Teflon Joe’s jockstrap at least get it right
