The 41,026 folks on hand in this evening’s extremely close contest at the Bronx experienced something special: a competitive game in which their team prevails.
So, as I was saying, extremely close and competitive game.
Here are the players who affected the game the most, and their stat lines for tonight:
Angels RP Jose Suarez (-0.233 WPA): 2.2 IP, 6 ER, 7 H, 3 K, 2 BB
Yankees SP Luis Severino (0.211 WPA): 4 IP, 0 ER, 2 H, 4 K, 2 BB
Angels DH Albert Pujols (-0.157 WPA): 0 for 4, 5 left-on-base
There’s really not much to be said about this one. The Angels gave up lots of runs. Jose Suarez had yet another miserable outing, and the visiting red failed to muster together any rendition of a successful offense. At least it was close?
