Here is what we have seen and has been the case this season… The Yankees play meaningless teams and scrape out a win. New York outlasted the White Sox in 13 innings for a 4-3 win to clinch the series victory. In his new role, Sonny Gray came out of the bullpen in relief and had already been in the game 2 innings. Like sand in the hour glass, Gray tossed a 1-2-3 inning in the 11th and magically escaped out of some trouble in the 12th. The only guys left in the bullpen were A.J. Cole (32 pitches Monday) and Aroldis Chapman (39 pitches Sunday), and Chapman was obviously unavailable. Like all good soap operas, it was all Sonny Gray for better or worse because Britton blew a 2-run lead in the 10th inning. Yankees win 4-3 in 13 innings.
Let’s just say that the Yankees are getting really sick of Adam Engel. The White Sox Center Fielder stole another home run away from a Yankee for the second straight night. Ugh! Either way, a big game for Andujar, who came through in the 13th inning.
