Leading Off

After winning yesterday’s thriller versus Milwaukee, the Yankees are starting a seven-game road trip this evening with the first of four against the Red Sox. This will be the last head-to-head series of the year between these historic rivals. Gleyber Torres has been the Yanks’ most successful hitter versus Boston this season, batting .355 with three home runs over 31 at-bats.

How ‘Bout That

There are so many layers to Sunday’s walk-off win! After being held hitless through 10.1 innings by Corbin Burnes and Milwaukee’s bullpen, Oswaldo Cabrera delivered a game-tying RBI double in the 11th – only four no-hitters in MLB history have been completed in extra innings and Cabrera denied the Brewers from throwing number five. After the Yanks fell behind again in the top of the 12th, Giancarlo Stanton tied the game in the bottom of the frame with a two-run homer and in the 13th 2008 draftee Kyle Higashioka doubled home the winning run, giving the longest tenured player in the Yankees organization his first career walk-off hit. Oh, and the winning pitcher? The victory was credited to Anthony Misiewicz, who joined the organization in early July after being claimed off waivers from the Tigers and made his Yankees debut by working the top of the 13th before Higgy popped the crowd with his walk-off.

Pinstriped Pulse

On Friday, Aaron Judge was named the Yankees’ nominee for the 2023 Roberto Clemente Award, the annual recognition of a Major League player who best represents the game of baseball through extraordinary character, community involvement, philanthropy and positive contributions, both on and off the field. As part of the annual program, each MLB team nominates one player to be considered for the league-wide award in tribute to Clemente’s achievements and character. You can vote for Judge at from now through October 1. Michael King continued his impressive transition from the bullpen to the starting rotation Saturday by giving up one earned run over five innings. King has now posted an ERA of 1.08 in four starts since he joined the rotation. During that same game Anthony Volpe recorded his 58th RBI of the season, which ranks fifth among AL rookies. The Yanks will see two of the players ahead of him on that list in the series that begins tonight, Masataka Yoshida (68) and Triston Casas (64). Oswald Peraza is batting .370 over his last seven games. Jasson Domínguez will miss the remainder of the season after Aaron Boone announced Sunday that he has been diagnosed with a torn UCL in his right elbow.

Probable Pitchers

Clarke Schmidt starts for the Yanks tonight and will try for his 10th win of the season when he works opposite Kutter Crawford, who threw six innings of one-hit ball to defeat the Yanks on Aug.19 at the Stadium and owns a 1.89 ERA in 19 career innings versus the Bombers. Carlos Rodón will take the mound as part of the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry for the first time when he starts tomorrow against Nick Pivetta. In the wake of Luis Severino’s oblique injury, the Yanks have not yet announced who will start Wednesday versus Tanner Houck. Boston’s starter for Thursday against King is TBA.
