What do we have here? A tie atop the East you say?
The Yankees, a squad who is riding high with a 16-1 record in their past seventeen games, beat their divisional rival tonight by a score of 3-2. This win officially placed the Yanks in a tie for first place with Boston, an accomplishment that looked well out of reach just last month.
Luis Severino had another ace-like performance against a rather potent lineup, compiling eleven strikeouts over the course of six solid innings.
Giancarlo Stanton was tonight’s offensive star as he clubbed two homeruns off Boston pitching. The pair of dingers were both equally impressive, one acted as a missile down the left field line, while the other was driven opposite field to right.
Neil Walker has had a quiet yet solid month of May, and proved so tonight by scoring a crucial run that served as the difference in the ballgame.
Check out what Stanton, Walker, and Boone had to say following tonight’s 3-2 handling of the Sox:
