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!
Today marks the final home game for New York Post beat writer @GeorgeAKingIII who is set to retire later this year after 24 years on the Yankees beat. Enjoy a much deserved retirement, George - you'll be missed in the Bronx and throughout baseball. pic.twitter.com/jARJ7IuFHZ— New York Yankees (@Yankees) September 27, 2020
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.
