NEW YORK — After a long stretch of swinging a cold bat, Didi Gregorius finally showed some signs of turing the page. In New York’s 3-0 win over the Nationals at Yankee Stadium, the Shortstop hit two solo home runs to lead the offensive charge.
Gregorius, who had just hit one homer since April 27, swatted two tonight off of Tanner Roark as he looks to regain his April form that won him AL Player of the Month.

As for the pitching, CC Sabathia pitched a second consecutive good start, going 5 and 2/3 innings, giving up just four hits and no runs.
Notably, the New York pitching staff was very careful with Bryce Harper. While he did reach base four times, he did not have a hit as he was walked twice and hit by a pitch twice, as well.
Sonny Gray will face Erick Feede in tomorrow’s series finale.
Current Yankees Record: 43-19
