Based off tonight’s final score, we can safely say this ballgame was not a pitchers’ duel. However, Masahiro Tanaka put together a very impressive performance in his latest start against the Twins, throwing 6.2 strong innings while allowing a mere one run to score.
Offensively, the Yankees certainly lived up to their Bronx Bomber nickname tonight, scoring 14 runs on 13 hits. Gary Sanchez drove in two runs and Miguel Andujar stayed hot, collecting an extra base hit for the seventh consecutive game. Tyler Austin and Didi Gregorius each drove in four, and Giancarlo Stanton had perhaps his best all-around game as a Yankee so far, going 4-for-4 with a homer, two RBI and three runs scored.
Gleyber Torres also collected his first career hit.
