Starting Pitcher- Jameson Taillon
The New York Yankees took on the Seattle Mariners for the first game of a three game set from T-Mobile Park in Seattle, Washington. The Yankees were looking to snap their 5 game losing streak after being swept by the St. Louis Cardinals.
In the top of the 1st inning, Josh Donaldson hit a 2 run single to left center, scoring DJ LeMahieu and Aaron Judge. The Yankees led 2-0.
Mitch Haniger hit a solo home run 416 ft. for the Mariners in the bottom of the 1st inning to make it 2-1, Yankees.
Donaldson belted a solo shot 373 ft. to deep left field in the top of the 3rd inning to increase the Yankees lead to 3-1.
Andrew Benintendi hit an RBI double to right field, scoring Gleyber Torres to put New York up 4-1.
In the bottom of the 4th inning, J.P. Crawford walked in a run for Seattle to bring the score to 4-2.
In the top of the 5th inning, Benintendi hit an RBI double to deep left center scoring Donaldson and Torres to make it 6-2 Yankees. IKF hit a sac fly to right field bringing Benintendi home and giving New York a 7-2 lead.
Cal Raleigh hit a solo home run for the Mariners in the bottom of the 7th inning to cut the deficit to 7-3.
The Yankees put the game away in the top of the 9th inning as Judge homered to put the Yankees up 5 runs. Jose Trevino hit an RBI single to center field, scoring Donaldson to give New York a 9-3 edge.
That’s why you sign him!!
In the bottom of the 9th inning, Mariners infielder Sam Haggerty hit an RBI single to left field scoring Eugenio Suarez. That would be the final run Seattle would score.
The Yankees took game 1 on the road 9-4.
It is Anthony Rizzo’s 33rd Birthday today as the Parkland Native was born August 8, 1989. Happy Birthday Anthony. Buon compleanno Antonio!
We also learned that Matt Carpenter was taken out of the game after getting struck by a pitch on his back left foot. It is a possible season-ending fracture. With Carpenter due to miss a notable amount of time and placed on the IL, the Yankees called up Miquel Andujar to take over for him. He is very capable and will do a good job in Matt’s absence.
We wish Carpenter a speedy recovery and know that he wants to do everything in his power to be back playing for the NY Yankees!
