Beginning the game with six hitless innings from rookie Domingo Germán, things were looking up for the Yankees. However, after pulling the young righty before the seventh, the bullpen could not maintain the tie, promptly allowing four runs to score.
Dellin Betances, who has looked dominant of late, was sent out for the dreaded second inning of work late in the ballgame. He ended up only allowing one run to cross, but left a couple men on base for Jonathan Holder, who gave up three runs which extended the lead to 4-0.
Offensively Neil Walker is starting to heat up and had himself a solid afternoon, roping a game-tying double off Cleveland closer Cody Allen. With the score tied at four, the Yankees had one thing on their mind: Walk off.
After the Bombers stormed back, it set the team up for a special way to conclude the game. This just happened to be a game-winning, three-run blast off the bat of Gleyber Torres, his second-career home run.
