New York Yankees (Finally) Beat The Oakland Athletics

New York Yankees, DJ LeMahieu

It took five games, but the New York Yankees have finally taken down the Oakland Athletics behind the help of DJ LeMahieu.

With the game tied at three in the bottom of the eleventh, the 31 year old ripped the first pitch he saw to right for a walkoff home run. It was his only hit of the day, but it sure was a big one.

Gary Sanchez drove in two Yankee runs on two solo shots early in the game. Aaron Judge had a game-tying home run in the eighth with the Yankees down 3-2.

Gleyber Torres and Mike Ford each had a hit. Luke Voit struck out in all at-bats on Saturday, but picked up a few hits in his return on Friday.

Domingo German pitched mediocre, giving up two runs and four hits in just five innings. The team relied heavily on the bullpen as seven different pitchers came in relief.

Yankees fans suffered a scare in the eighth inning when Zack Britton left the game with the trainer. Luckily, it was just calf cramps and he should be good to go whenever he is needed next.

In The Win Column

The Yankees have finally won a game with the Athletics and will look to win the series on Sunday with JA Happ on the mound facing Sean Manaea.

It’s kinda nerve-wracking that the Yankees have had so much trouble with this team in 2019. Oakland is very good, and there is a good chance that the two teams may meet again in October, however it would most likely be in the ALDS.

The Yankees need to figure something out against this team because losing to them in October is the last thing they want to do.
