Yankees Highlights: Sleepwalking into the playoffs

Thanks for sticking around through the regular season!

MLB: Miami Marlins at New York Yankees Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports

The 2020 regular season finished with a whimper for the Yankees. More specifically, it wrapped up on the losing end of a 5-0 shutout against the Marlins. Oops.

We’ll have a full recap up soon. In the meantime, here are some highlights:

Winner of the Game

The Bombers didn’t do much at the plate, which makes it tough to pick a winner. Tyler Wade had six assists, per the YES broadcast, which is kinda cool, I suppose. The big winner, then? George A. King III, who retired after a storied career as the Yankees’ beat reporter for the New York Post. Congratulations to one of the best!

Honorable Mention: DJ LeMahieu collecting two more hits—expect a news story on him in a few minutes.

Loser of the Game

The lineup sleepwalked into the postseason, as José Ureña and Daniel Castano combined to shut out the Yanks.

The Yankees also had a rough day on the mound, with Clarke Schmidt allowing three runs over four innings of work. Jonathan Holder followed and served up a solo homer to Brian Anderson.
