Gregorious stays hot in Yankees’ victory over Reds

NEW YORK – The Yankees returned home for the first of two games against the Cincinnati Reds and shortstop Didi Gregorious came out swinging for the fences. In his 2-for-3 effort, featuring a solo home run, the Yankees topped the Reds by a score of 4-2.

Southpaw Jordan Montgomery fired 6.2 innings and allowed only one run while striking out six on the night. But the star of the night for the Yankees was Gregorious. The shortstop made a couple of stellar defensive plays coupled with a home run and sacrifice fly – good for two of the Yankees four runs.

In the top of the fifth inning, Devin Mesoraco lined a sharp ground ball towards shortstop and Gregorious ranged to his right to make a great sliding stab, followed by a strong throw to first base to get the relatively speedy Reds’ catcher.

Gregorious ranged to his right to make a fine defensive play on Devin Mesoraco.

The biggest story over the past two weeks for Gregorious has been his offense. He is hitting 18-for-45 (.400) with eight runs scored, five home runs and eight RBI over that span of time. The past two games alone Gregorious has hit three home runs and has driven in four runs.

Above all, Gregorious credits his teammates for his recent success. In his post game interview with Ryan Ruocco, he said, “It’s all about trying to play the game and keep the momentum going, without my teammates getting on base I wouldn’t be having any success.” Gregorious added, “As long as we get the win, that’s the most important thing.”
