the Yankees The offense broke out for nine runs behind home Aaron Judge And Anthony Volpe in a 9-4 win over the Marlins.
Volpe opened the scoring for the Yankees in the second half with a three-run home run into left center field. The rookie shortstop entered the game slugging 2-for-17, but home runs were his 15thy of the season, making him the second Yankees rookie ever to have more than 15 home runs and 20 stolen bases, joining Alfonso Soriano.
-Judge, who has only hit two home runs since returning from IL, hit a giant 464-foot single to right center field—his longest home run of the season. While Judge got the best of the Marlins on his second at-bat, pitchers continue to approach him cautiously as he worked two more runs on Friday, giving him 16 total walks in 13 games.
–Ian Hamilton He was used as an opener for the second game in a row but this time he returned to the field in the second half, which did not produce the best results. The right-hander allowed two runs, but fortunately a three-run lead was spotted by Volpe.
Hamilton turned the match into Randy Vasquez in the third inning, which gave the Yankees 3.2 innings of work, allowing two runs on three hits while striking out two. Vasquez’s role over the next few weeks will be interesting to watch as the Yankees’ starting rotation has been depleted by injuries and struggles.
–The Yankees struggled to beat runners in scoring position all week, but they came through clutch strikes throughout Friday’s 5-for-10 win with RISP. Oswaldo Cabrera He ripped an RBI single in the fourth with runners on first and third, which ensued Isiah Keener Valeva RBI one with runners on first and second. Glaber Torres He also drove in Cabrera later in the inning with an RBI single as well
