Gwiz’s three up/three down

BRONX, N.Y. — They toyed with them a bit but in the end, the New York Yankees swept the Oakland Athletics. New York has swept nine series’ thus far, three shy of their total from last season and we’re not even in July. The Yankees have won four straight contests, improving their ledger to 56-20. They’re 13 games up on Boston, 13.5 ahead of Toronto, 15 clear of Tampa and 21.5 up on Baltimore. Incredible.

Three up:

Giancarlo Stanton: His past six hits are all home runs. Stanton homered in the opening game and his oppo taco dong proved the difference in Wednesday’s matinee victory.

J.P. Sears: In a spot start he did his duty. Sears tossed 5.2 frames of scoreless ball in Tuesday’s win.


Marwin Gonzalez: His second inning home run was the difference-maker Tuesday. Gonzalez also posted a 1.200 OPS during the series.

Three down:

Jordan Montgomery: He gave the Yankees length but surrendering five runs in 6.2 frames against that lineup is not ideal.

Aaron Hicks: Hicks went 1-for-8 with a pair of walks against Oakland.

Joey Gallo: Gallo was 0-for-7 against A’s pitching.
