Nathan Eovaldi pitched well yesterday. The work-in-progress is progressing as he pitched into the 9th inning (never mind the final three outs were a chore, Dellin Betances eventually came in and reminded everyone that they aren’t so hard after all).
By then, Eovaldi had a plump lead. He didn’t strike out a lot of guys but got a couple of critical double play ground balls–including one lucky smash that was deftly picked by Didi Gregorious–to help him out of trouble. Chase Headley had the big knocks with some help from Garrett Jones and Stephen Drew.
Final Score: Yanks 7, Twins 2.
Wonderful job by the Yanks after getting blown out on Friday.
