Yankees Win In Historic Fashion
The New York Yankees did something yesterday that hadn't been done in franchise history since 1914.
On Sunday afternoon, the Yankees beat the Tampa Bay Rays 2-1. The Yankees had 1 hit as Starlin Castro hit a 2-run homer off of Jake Odorizzi after a Brett Gardner walk. That was the first time the Yankees have one a game with 1 hit since 1914 and the first time they've won a game by scoring more than one run on one hit since 1913.
Jake Odorizzi, unfortunately, in the blink of an eye went from throwing a no-hitter to being the losing pitcher. After loosing his perfect game on an error in the 6th inning, Odorizzi continued his dominance of the Yankees lineup until Castro's decisive blow.
Nathan Eovaldi turned in another strong performance as he scattered 6 hits in six innings pitched and kept the Yankees in the ballgame as he got out of a few jam's in the 5th and 6th innings.
The Yankees look to get more hits on their road swing to Toronto to face the Blue Jays as that series starts tomorrow at the Rogers Centre.
