Francesa: Girardi Was Among Yankees' Stars In Wild-Card Win

Posted October 05, 2017

Radio: WTAM-AM 1100, WMMS-FM 100.7. The right-hander lasted only 29 pitches on a crisp autumn night and matched the Yankees' shortest postseason start, by Bob Turley in Game 2 of the 1958 World Series and Art Ditmar in the 1960 World Series opener.

Wearing an "OCTOBER READY" workout T-shirt, Sanchez said that the young Yankees will "focus on being ready and have fun", trying their best to treat it as Game 163 of the season. After Gardner walked and Judge singled, Gregorius continued his career season into the postseason, sending an Ervin Santana offering deep into the right-center field stands. The Yankees have a very good team in their own right and the people who are counting them out may look foolish. "I think it was the command of my pitches". With this being said, we should not worry about Luis Severino's pitching, he just can not pitch against the Twins.

Judge hit 52 home runs in the regular season to set a rookie record.

On the strength of an early four-run advantage, the Indians earned a 9-4 victory over the Yankees, which completed both the doubleheader and three-game series sweep in The Bronx, New York on Wednesday, August 30.

There is much more to the Yankees than the 6-foot-7 Judge, too. But four hours - they're starting to rival college football. We saw the Twins jump all over the Yanks and build a 3-0 lead instantly. Not even. The Yankees answered with three runs in the bottom of the first on a Didi Gregorius three-run home run. The Yankees were fifth at 3.72.

He was credited with the win as the Yankees advanced to the ALDS round.

The Indians won 102 games, produced an AL record 22-game winning streak and posted the biggest run differential in the majors at plus-254.

The praise for Aaron Judge keeps on coming.

Almost all of the pitchers were stretched beyond what they normally pitch and most relievers like to have an idea how many innings or outs they'll be tasked with giving the team.

We will update with trends once they are released. Most of this team is returning from previous year. They're better this season than they were last.

He then got Joe Mauer to pop up, but he quickly proved that lone out to be an anomaly for the night rather than a sign of being back on track.

Now one of Sano's issues has always been quality wipeout sliders going away from him, and he saw multiple of those in an at bat against Buck Farmer on Saturday, so a strikeout in that situation was something he possibly would have had when healthy before, even if his timing was flawless.
