MARCHING TOWARD FIRST!
The Yankees needed this win tonight. In fact, they need to win as much as they can right now. The best news of the night is that the Yankees won, and the Blue Jays lost. If you want to gain on your rival, that's a good combination.
Luis Severino started for New York tonight. I gotta tell ya, this kid's great. 6.1 innings, allowed 7 hits and only 1 run. In fact, the only other run was given up by Adam Warren. That being said, Warren also struck out 2. Bottom line, our pitching is dominant. Andrew Miller got save number 30. Let's get things rolling!
The Yankee run scoring went like this:
In the second, Alex Rodriguez cranked out a 2 run homer. Then, in the 4th, Brian McCann hit a solo shot. In the 7th, another homer, this time it was Greg Bird who hit a 2 run shot. By then is was 5-1. It would eventually become 5-2... and that's that.
Final: Yankees 5- Rays 2
