A four-game sweep against any team is a big deal at this critical time of the year, but a four-game Subway Series sweep is especially sweet. With the Red Sox having the night off, the Yanks are four games back with this weekend’s series at Fenway to come (weather permitting).
Severino had a fun night tonight getting not only the win but his first major league hit. He looked as happy as a kid at Christmas.
Gary Sanchez is on fire at the plate. Whether he only heats up during the month of August or that lunch he had with A-Rod turned his head around, he’s been our power offense right now.
Didi is clutch. Period. He hardly ever disappoints.
Judge is hitting the occasional bomb, but he’s swinging at bad pitches and needs to finish strong.
Yet another player went on the DL: Garrett Cooper, who was hitting really well. But Tyler Austin is back, so maybe he’ll make the most of his turn in the majors.
Montgomery didn’t go on the DL despite getting hit on the ear during batting practice and pitched well in spite of what must have been a little scary.
What will happen this weekend? Beats me, but I’m eager to find out.
