Hey Baseball fans, I’m going to start a new segment called, “Yankees Rewind”. It will be capturing the best and the not-so-best moments during the Yankees past week. Also, It will run from Sunday-Sunday, coverage starting on Sunday, June 26. Let’s Go Bronx Bombers!
Sunday, June 26, 2022
Starting Pitcher- Nestor Cortès, Jr.
The New York Yankees took on the Houston Astros in their last game of a four game series. The Bronx Bombers needed a win to split the series. Second baseman Gleyber Torres injured his ankle while trying to steal home plate and was tagged out in the bottom of the 9th inning.
In the later-half of the 10th inning, Aaron Judge won the game with a walk-off three run homer to lift the Yanks over Houston 6-3. It was Judge’s second walk off blast in the series and more importantly, this one helped them earn the split.
We later learned that Torres rolled his ankle and was also given a cortisone shot to his right wrist after receiving an MRI. He is also wearing an aircast on his wrist. The injury was determined not serious. He should be back playing later in the week.

After being down 5-3 to the Oakland Athletics, the Yankees rallied and scored six runs in the bottom of the seventh inning. A’s catcher Sean Murphy was called for catcher’s interference by umpire Manny Gonzalez after Judge grounded out in what would have ended the inning. Anthony Rizzo was then blasted by a pitch, sending up Giancarlo Stanton to bat. When Stanton fouled off a 1-0 count, Aaron Boone signaled to Gonzalez to call another catcher’s interference on Murphy, and he did.
With the Yankees down 5-4 and the bases loaded, Josh Donaldson hit a two run double to put the Yankees ahead 6-5. Jose Trevino cashed in with another two run double and the Yankees were up 8-5. Marwin Gonzalez ended the rally with an RBI single and the Yankees held off the A’s for a 9-5 comeback win.
This is the Yankees 23rd come from behind victory this season.

The New York Yankees completed the sweep of the Oakland Athletics in the final game of a 3 game set from Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. The A’s jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning off the bats of Stephen Piscotty and Elvis Andrus. In the bottom of the first, the comeback driven Yankees started their rally. Aaron Judge belted a two-run homer off pitcher Cole Irvin to cut the deficit to 3-2. The last runs of the game came in the bottom of the third inning when Giancarlo Stanton hit a three-run home run off of Irvin to give the Yankees a 5-3 lead. That would end up being the final score of the game.
With both Judge and Stanton hitting homers in this game, it brings the New York Yankees’ Home Run Total of the Year to 126.

After sweeping the Oakland Athletics at home, the Yankees hit the road for a one day makeup game against the Houston Astros. The Yankees split the series 2-2 last time they met at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx.
Anthony Rizzo hit a solo-home run in the game, but it wasn’t good enough to take home the win. The Yankees lost 2-1. The good news is New York went 22-6 in the month of June and can now focus on finishing the first-half strong in July.
They will travel on the road again tomorrow to Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio, to take on the Cleveland Guardians.
