Then there'll be plenty of games like this 7-2 coasting over the bad Rays at Yankee Stadium, the Yankees' second straight win and a sweep of this quick series, as each of the three sluggers contributed a two-run homer. While Adam Jones.333 (7-for-21) hits him well, Chris Davis is 5-for-21 (.238) and Manny Machado.174 (4-for-23) do not. Torreyes went 1-for-3 with a RBI single and was on base for Judge's two-run home run. Tampa Bay has lost four straight since beating Boston in its opener. Last year, Judge, Stanton, and Sanchez combined for 144 home runs, 336 RBIs, and combined for an average of .281.
Brett Gardner reached on a single leading off the bottom half, and Stanton put NY ahead with his first home run since he hit a pair in Thursday's opening win at Toronto. Last season, Tanaka was 1-1 with a 6.11 ERA in three outings vs. Baltimore, though he allowed two runs on eight hits in seven innings in a 13-5 win over them in September.
To Judge, there was nothing special about the home run production the middle of his lineup displayed.
"We're just doing our job", Judge said.
As with today's game, the weather forecast is bleak and the game could be delayed or postponed.
Stanton struck out 16-3 times past year with the Marlins, a total that will happen to put him a remote moment about the Yankees, supporting decide's 203. The Yankees regained the lead just before Gregorius' homer when Tyler Austin scored from second as Brett Gardner sacrificed and third baseman Matt Duffy threw wildly past first, where second baseman Brad Miller tried to make a backhand pickup. The stands were half-full despite an announced crowd of 46,776, and the Yankees called off the pregame introductions that Boone had been looking forward to.
How long will gas prices continue to increase?
Providing hope that the rise may be moderate this year is the fact that consumers are using less gasoline this spring. The Detroit-area's average daily gas price was about $2.70 per gallon, about 2 cents more than last week's average.
