Good point. Miley is a crafty guy, not averse to a quick pitch. DJ was in control. He is a smart, smart player.One huge play in this game was at 2-2, Miley was still cruising and LeMahieu called time on a 3-2 pitch. He was definitely well within his rights, but Miley threw the pitch anyway, a perfect pitch that didn't count. The next one was ball 4, then Judge walked, Voit looped a single (only NY's second hit of the game) and Miley was out. at 85 pitches.
TL/DR: We all love DJ.
I would say the game result matters less than the results against Verlander, it would be great to hit him around some for once.Verlander is going to be so pumped on Sunday. Game means a lot to Houston, not so much to Yankees, except when you are on a roll, you get greedy.
Yeah, and Miggy Cabrera in the 2003 WS, all super young and all already beasts at the plate.During that at bat against Holder, Yordan Alvarez totally gave me a flashback to an even younger Andruw Jones from the 1996 WS. Then, as today, it just felt like "this kid is gonna hurt us right here". Luckily also like then, it didn't end up meaning anything in the end.
