The count was 3-2 as it so often is with Aaron Judge. Top of the 9th and here comes the breaking pitch, darting out of the strike zone, and there goes Judge swinging and missing as he sets the mark for consecutive games with a strike out for a non-pitcher. On the other hand, earlier in the game he a ball so far that it reached the third deck, and it took awhile for everyone to wrap their head around what they’d just seen.
Oh, and the Yanks won—dancing around a competent performance by junk-ballin’ Jamie Garcia—5-3.
Is it too much to ask for a sweep? Perhaps. Baseball has a way of punishing you when you ask for such things. But it is not too much to ask Luis Severino to go out there, not mince around and put heads to bed.
Never mind the gluttony:
Let’s Go Yank-ees!
