THE YANKEES ARE BACK!
Every game's a must win. Obviously that's how the Yankees look at it. Fans definitely look at it that way, especially when the Blue Jays have knocked them out of first place. The Yankees should be pissed. The last 2 games in Atlanta is hopefully a sign that we're turning it around now.
Luis Severino started for the Yankees and there were indications early that he would keep us in the game. He went 6 innings giving up 4 hits and no runs last night. In fact the only Braves run that was given up was by Justin Wilson. Severino also struck out 5.
The Yankee run scoring went like this:
In the first, with Chase Headley at the plate... a wild pitch and Jacoby Ellsbury scored. Then, in the 7th, Didi Gregorius, who's been on fire lately, doubled knocking in a run.
In the 8th, another double. This one by Brian McCann, and that knocked in Chris Young. Those are your 3...
Andrew Miller then shut the door on the Braves, striking out 2, getting his 28th save of the season and securing the victory.
Keep going Yanks. We need to get that consistency. We need to get that confidence. Let's do it.
Final: Yankees 3 - Braves 1
