Kyle Higashioka didn’t want to left out and hit his first home run of the season. 5-0 Yankees.

Gleyber Torres squeaked out a double and Gary Sanchez walked in the sixth inning. Mike Tauchman hot a hit after a passed ball moved the runners up. Torres scores.

Gerrit Cole pitched a complete seven inning game only allowing two hits.

Yankees win 6-0.


Game 2

LeMahieu tags and makes it to third on a bad throw to the thirdbaseman. Clint Frazier reaches on a fielder’s choice. Jose Iglesias fires one to home plate, but is off, the ball dropped and LeMahieu makes it safely. Torres and Miguel Andujar gets run scoring hits before Gary Sanchez strikes out. Orioles make a pitching change and get out of the inning without more damage. 4-1 Yankees.

Tanaka settles down and while the second inning wasn’t easy, he doesn’t allow another run to score.
