Today on Pinstripe Alley - 7/9/22

Two games in Beantown down; two to go.

I appreciated the Yankees’ commitment to piling on runs at Fenway Park last night. It never feels like games are truly over there, and every little bit counts. Even at 7-2 in the third, they kept adding to the lead, which came in handy when Boston knocked Nestor Cortes out and got three back to bring it to 9-5, and then had the tying run at the plate in the sixth in the form of the dangerous Trevor Story. Lucas Luetge ended the jam, and three more runs crossed home plate before the game was over. That’s the way you do it to win at the Dreaded Hall of Doubles.

Today on the site, Peter will check out the Friday night action from the Yankees’ non-Boston rivals and Chris will explore the rebuilding A’s as a potential trade partner. Later on, Matt will honor Jose Trevino’s All-Star bid with a look back at three unexpected Yankees All-Stars from days of yore, and Kevin will revisit his preseason “reasons to be optimistic” column and how things have gone even better than expected.
