Yankees Highlights: Happ, Voit blast Yankees past Royals

The Yankees kicked off their doubleheader in style, cruising past the Royals 7-3. With a doubleheader against the struggling Royals, the Yankees have a chance today to really tack on to their AL-East lead. They got right to work this afternoon, cruising past the Royals by a score of 7-3. Kansas City briefly tied the game in the sixth, but otherwise, the Yankees led wire-to-wire to secure the victory in game one. Winner of the Game Lots of good choices today in a game full of strong performances, but Luke Voit’s two-run home run in the seventh provided the margin of victory. Voit finished...

New York Yankees: Can Domingo German keep this up?

One of the biggest surprises of the 2019 MLB season so far has been the New York Yankees right-handed starting pitcher Domingo German, who has been tearing it up. Through 10 games, New York Yankees starter Domingo German is 9-1 and has won his last six starts. His nine wins this season are the most by […] New York Yankees: Can Domingo German keep this up? - Call to the Pen - Call to the Pen - A Major League Baseball Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

New York Yankees vs. Kansas City Royals: J.A. Happ vs.

New York Yankees vs. Kansas City Royals: J.A. Happ vs.

Let’s play two — weather permitting! After last night’s rainout, the Yankees are scheduled to play a doubleheader against the Royals today. We’ll see if the weather cooperates. For now, though, it looks like game one will proceed on time. J.A. Happ will start the afternoon portion, and he badly needs a good start. The left-hander owns a 5.16 ERA (5.71 FIP) over 52.1 innings. His last start saw him allow six runs against the Orioles. He’s served up home runs at a ridiculous rate (2.24 HR/9), so perhaps a reasonable goal for him today is to keep the ball in the park. Junis,...

The time the Yankees scored 10-plus runs in five straight games

The time the Yankees scored 10-plus runs in five straight games

Earlier this week, the Yankees scored 10+ runs in three straight games. Let’s go back nearly 80 years to look at the longest streak of that type. On Sunday, the Yankees dropped 13 runs on the Rays, thanks mostly to a seven-run sixth inning. That inning not only broke open a previously tied game, but propelled the Yankees back into first place in the AL East. On Monday, the Yankees trailed 6-1 to the lowly Orioles after four. Over the next couple innings, they slowly chipped away at that deficit. In the ninth, they scored four runs, capped off by a big Gary Sanchez home run, eventually...

The Yankees’ outfield defense has been quietly solid

The Yankees’ outfield defense has been quietly solid

Despite losing two quality defenders in Aaron Judge and Aaron Hicks to start the season, the Yankees’ outfield defense has held up nicely. The Yankees’ outfield was one of the team’s core strengths in 2018. Obviously, a large part of this can be attributed to Aaron Judge, Aaron Hicks, and Giancarlo Stanton being terrifying hitters. In addition to that, however, the trio, along with Brett Gardner, have acquitted themselves quite nicely in the field as well. Hicks was known since his prospect days as a plus defender, with good range and a cannon of an arm in center field. Judge, too,...

The Yankees should not trade Clint Frazier

The Yankees should not trade Clint Frazier

The young outfielder and former top prospect is the topic of trade talks, but the Yankees would be wise not to deal the budding star. Most of us are familiar with the saying, “Nothing is certain but death and taxes,” a phrase attributed to Benjamin Franklin. Everything about that, however, is wrong. For starters, while Franklin famously used this phrase in a letter to Jean-Baptiste Leroy in 1789, the line has its origins — at least, as far as we can tell — in Christopher Bullock’s 1716 play The Cobbler of Preston. More importantly — and more relevantly, I might add — the quote...

How Gio Urshela is finding success with the Yankees

How Gio Urshela is finding success with the Yankees

Gio Urshela went from a defensive specialist to a legitimate offensive threat this season for the Yankees There has been no greater surprise for the Yankees this season than Giovanny Urshela, the 27-year-old utility infielder who was acquired for cash considerations last August and has worked his way into the starting job at third base. Urshela, a career .225 batter entering 2019, is slashing .333/.383/.470 in 39 games this season and has been the definition of clutch since he was called up on April 6. Urshela’s breakout has been well documented, but what makes the current version of...

The teams will play a doubleheader tomorrow. The Yankees still can’t catch a break with the weather. Tonight’s series opener against the Royals has been postponed, reports Bryan Hoch. The game will be made up as part of a split-admission doubleheader tomorrow. This postponement still doesn’t help the Yankees with their pitching shortage. The team will still need to use a bullpen game, with Chad Green and Jakob Junis scheduled for game one. J.A. Happ and Danny Duff are set to take the night portion. With tonight’s rainout, the Yankees will have had three postponements in the span...
