Temperatures hovered in a upper-40s Wednesday night in a Bronx, though that didn’t stop a Yankees from unleashing an electric energy surge.
The Bombers connected on 4 home runs – one any from Chase Headley, Starlin Castro, Aaron Judge and pinch-hitter Aaron Hicks – en track to a 9-1 series-clinching feat over a White Sox during a Stadium.
Ace Masahiro Tanaka warranted a win, hurling 7 innings of one-run round in his best opening of a immature 2017 season. His counterpart, rookie righthander Dylan Covey, was roughed adult in 5 innings, permitting 10 hits and 8 warranted runs in his second career start.
The Yankees have won 9 of their final 10.
PLAY OF THE GAME
It valid to be a incomprehensible run, though Judge’s mammoth blast in a fifth inning valid because so many in a Yankees classification are vehement about a 6-7 right fielder. Judge positively demolished a 1-0 charity from Covey, pushing a unresolved curveball 451 feet into a tip of a bleachers in left field. The blast followed Castro’s three-run homer, extended a Yankee lead to 8-0 and had a home cave looking on in awe.
Headley’s first-inning home run set a tinge for a widespread opening from a Yankees offense. Brett Gardner led off with a hard-hit line-drive double to right-center, advancing to third when Chicago core fielder Leury Garcia misplayed a round off a wall. Covey afterwards left a 1-1 two-seam fastball adult in a section to Headley, who incited on a towering representation and deposited in a Bombers bullpen. The Yankees afterwards never trailed in a contest.
