Talk about a stellar performance! The young ace certainly made a statement against the world champs on Wednesday by pitching complete game shutout. Not only did Severino mute a potent Astro offense, but he allowed Aaron Boone‘s bullpen a full day-off leading up to Thursday’s dreaded day game after a night game.
As far as the bats go, Giancarlo Stanton was tonight’s stand-out performer, cranking an opposite field homer early in the game and later pulling a ball into the left field seats. Additionally, he managed to rip a double that would allow Aaron Hicks to score.
Tyler Austin left the game early after jamming his hip on a diving play at first, but is confident he’ll be ready for tomorrow afternoon’s game.
Check out what Sevvy, Stanton, Hicks, Austin, and Boone had to say following the Yankee’s 4-0 victory over Houston:
