Yankees Shut Out Jays
The New York Yankees are finally at .500 after their 6-0 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night in the Bronx. Before the win last night, the Yankees hadn't been at .500 since they were 4-4 on April 15th.
"When things are going bad, you set your sights to get back to .500 and then you go from there," Chase Headley said. We've had to play really good baseball to get back here, but we're here and now we've got to keep going, keep building."
Nathan Eovaldi was nothing short of nasty on the mound. He threw 6 strong innings only giving up two hits and striking out five.
"After the third inning, I felt a lot better. I was able to locate the ball inside," said Eovaldi.
Carlos Beltran flexed his power again as he launched his 10th home run and his team-high 29th RBI. The Yankees were finally able to hit a knuckle-ball pitcher as they were able to get some runs off of R.A. Dickey; something they've struggled with over the past few seasons.
"He [Dickey] tried to quick pitch me and I got one high," Beltran said to Susan Waldman after the game.
The third place Yankees look to keep the 5-game winning streak going against the Blue Jays on Wednesday night as Ivan Nova gets set to face off against Marco Estrada.
