Deja vu all over again. Stanton drills another smash off the third baseman’s glove. Two more runs. I just figured out, Bregman playing short and Gurriel at third. Bregman might have gloved both.

Funny line score, five multiple run innings in a row for both teams. A 0 would be very nice, Adam.

First time Pressly has given up more than one run in a game since being traded to HOU last July.

Holder getting the 7th I guess means that Boone is trying to stay away from not just Kahnle but Chapman too.

YES!

Ironically that makes Britton's job in the 9th a bit easier, as he doesn't have to see Altuve.

Finally a scoreless half inning after five multiple run innings in a row.

Have to say, I don't mind the walk to Alvarez so much. Now throw strikes.

Tough tough win, wow. NY gains another game on TB and BOS, I hope they use the A lineup against Verlander tomorrow.

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.

Good point. Miley is a crafty guy, not averse to a quick pitch. DJ was in control. He is a smart, smart player.

Holder gets the W despite being by far the worst NY pitcher today, dumbest stat ever.

Yordan Alvarez has 29 HRs this year now in 256 ABs between AAA and MLB, he is ridiculous.

No hits for Judge in his first two games back, but he contributed today by scoring easily from second on both of those Stanton grounders as well as the amazing throw to nail Stassi.

As shaky as his inning was tonight, I still have to say I love watching Ottavino pitch more than any Yankee reliever I can remember other than Mo. Even when he's not throwing strikes, it seems more to me like it's just because his pitches have so much movement that they're hard to locate with 100% consistency. It's like Jeff Nelson, except Ottavino's slider has a bigger 12 to 6 bite and he's not just always trying to nibble with frisbees outside of the plate.

Also, I love how Stanton has so much exit velocity he can just hit it through a third baseman's glove. :p

Agreed, love Ottavino. As Terry said at the time, the pitch he made to freeze Altuve to end the inning was perfect, as it looked just like his slider but cut the other way at the last moment to dot the outside corner, gorgeous pitch.

Ottavino and Britton will presumably be unavailable tomorrow, maybe tomorrow they actually use Green.

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.

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.

I would say the game result matters less than the results against Verlander, it would be great to hit him around some for once.

Yeah, and Miggy Cabrera in the 2003 WS, all super young and all already beasts at the plate.
