Yankees History: How to go from no hits to not losing in four batters

Yankees History: How to go from no hits to not losing in four batters

Photo by Adam Hunger/ The 1957 Yankees were a couple outs away from making some ignominious history. They decided to win instead. Sunday’s win was a bit of a weird one. The day after getting no-hit, it seemed like the Yankees were maybe going to have it happen to them again. It took until the seventh, but Giancarlo Stanton finally ended Astros starter José Urquidy’s no-no bid after 6.1 innings, homering to get the Yankees on the board. Even though they avoided being the first team to ever get no-hit in back-to-back games, a win still didn’t exactly seem on the...

All-Star Game: Judge to start; Stanton, Trevino advance to Phase 2

All-Star Game: Judge to start; Stanton, Trevino advance to Phase 2

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ Vote for Jose Trevino and Giancarlo Stanton to join Judge at Dodger Stadium Major League Baseball announced the results of Phase 1 of their annual All-Star Game voting, and we already know one Yankee who has his ticket punched to Los Angeles. It will come as a shock to precisely no one, except for maybe that mound of ants I saw hiding under a rock earlier today. Aaron Judge has been absolutely phenomenal in a potential walk year for the Yankees, leading the major leagues with 29 homers in just 74 games while batting .290/.365/.636 with a 1.001 OPS...

Yankees 5, A’s 3: Judge, Stanton flex muscles as Yanks finish sweep

Photo by Mike Stobe/ The Yankees set a new record for most homers in June, sweeping the A’s away in the process. The Yankees got the job done and swept the A’s with a 5-3 comeback victory in the series finale this afternoon. The ballclub’s 56th win came behind a feisty performance from Jameson Taillon, a couple of timely home runs from Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton, and another clean day for the ‘pen. In a dream season for the starting rotation, regardless of who’s taking the ball each day, every Yankees fan expects a quality start — not necessarily by...

Giancarlo Stanton’s weird June has shown some encouraging signs

Giancarlo Stanton’s weird June has shown some encouraging signs

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ The feared slugger has struggled to tally many hits, but he’s getting on base and making his contact count. Giancarlo Stanton has been good this season, and is about as important as anyone in this Yankee lineup. The slugger has swatted 18 home runs in 61 games, and has hit for a 138 wRC+ thus far. Those are great numbers, and solidly in line with the recent production we have seen from Stanton for the Yankees. In June, he has maintained this general level of production, while seemingly dealing with struggles in other aspects at the plate. Though...

Perhaps the most interesting case for the Yankees...

Gleyber Torres leaves Yankees game with ankle injury

Gleyber Torres leaves Yankees game with ankle injury

Photo by Sarah Stier/ The Yankees’ ninth-inning rally on Sunday ended in worse than disappointment. Yankee Stadium was rocking in the ninth inning on Sunday afternoon. The team had come back to life after 16 consecutive hitless frames by Astros pitching, as they rode a solo homer by Giancarlo Stanton in the seventh to break up the no-no and a two-run blast by DJ LeMahieu in the eighth to tie it up, 3-3. Gleyber Torres looked like he was about to help provide another memorable moment in the ninth. With one out, he walked and then stole second, moving to third on a bad...

Today on Pinstripe Alley - 6/26/22

Photo by Mike Stobe/ The grudge match series nears the end, for now. Outside of a Giancarlo Stanton bomb and a thrilling ninth inning comeback in the first game of this series, Houston has thrown the brakes on a massive hot streak for the Yankees. It’s far from panic-time, but it is a reminder that these Astros have been resilient and deadly for years — regardless of what you think of the cheating scandal, making it to three World Series in five years means you’ve got plenty of talent. The Yankees have been the best team in baseball up until this point, but a bad...

The Yankees finally found a way to improve their outfield defense

The Yankees finally found a way to improve their outfield defense

Photo by David Berding/ Shifting Aaron Judge to center field when Giancarlo Stanton hit the IL helped the Yankees stumble on their best outfield defense. You’d be forgiven for thinking, back in early April, that the Yankees were going to have an elite defense in the outfield. After all, although Aaron Hicks was no longer an above-average center fielder, he was flanked on one side by two-time Gold Glove recipient Joey Gallo and on the other by annual Gold Glove finalist and 2021 Fielding Bible Award winner Aaron Judge. And then, the season began, and the exact opposite...

Gleyber Torres and the All-Star second base aspirants

Gleyber Torres and the All-Star second base aspirants

Gregory Fisher-USA TODAY Sports Does Gleyber Torres have a shot at making the AL All-Star Team? After a down season in 2021, Gleyber Torres has played like a potential All-Star, and the Yankees thought well enough of him to list him on their ballot at second base, pushing DJ LeMahieu to third and Josh Donaldson to DH with Giancarlo Stanton freed up in the outfield. However, the second base competition for an All-Star vote in the American League is particularly fierce. It’s going to be an uphill battle for Torres to make it to the All-Star Game, and that’s not even...

In praise of the mandated off-day

In praise of the mandated off-day

Photo by Michael Zagaris/Oakland Athletics/ Load management is working, even if we grind our teeth. Every afternoon, the Yankees Twitter account posts the lineup for the day’s game, and someone that 27 MLB teams would fall over themselves to sign is sitting on the bench. Once a week its Giancarlo Stanton, then the next day it might be DJ LeMahieu, and after that Josh Donaldson. This is a deliberate and calculated choice. Part of it comes down to the Yankees having so much talent that it’s just too hard to get them all into starting slots — you only have nine...

NYY News: Carpenter building on hot start

Photo by Adam Hunger/ Matt Carpenter’s hot start continues; Giancarlo Stanton, Kyle Higashioka set opposite speed marks with home runs. NJ.com | Brendan Kuty: Matt Carpenter continued his incredible run as a Yankee on Sunday, homering twice in a blowout win over the Cubs. Through 10 games as a Yankee, he has six home runs and a 1.592 OPS. When asked if he was back to near his best, Carpenter gave some general platitudes, but didn’t entirely shoot the thought down. New York Post | Jon Heyman: The Yankees’ red hot start to the season has them pretty clearly in the...

Yankees 8, Cubs 0: Bombers stage their own personal home run derby

Photo by Mike Stobe/ The Yankees smashed six home runs as they cruised past the Cubs. While they eventually got the win, Friday night’s game was not exactly a strong display from the Yankees’ offense. They scored just two runs, having gone 1-for-19 with runners in scoring position. On Saturday, offense was not an issue. Up and down the lineup, Yankee hitters were crushing the ball, turning the game into their own personal home run derby. In total, they recorded six home runs on the day with Giancarlo Stanton, Gleyber Torres, Jose Trevino, Anthony Rizzo, and Aaron...
