CHICAGO – The Yankees don’t lose the White Sox very often, but when they do, it’s amazing.
Aroldis Chapman left to the right of Luis Robert who won the game that scored Tim Anderson by one in the ninth minute and the Yankees won five games in a 3-2 defeat at Guaranteed Rate Field.
It was just the Yankees’ second loss in their last 11 games in the White Sox. The other was the Field of Dreams in Iowa last year, which ended with Anderson homer.
This time, Anderson chose Chapman with one and Yoan Moncada left before Robert finished.
“Things got tough,” Chapman said through a ninth-floor translator. “You have to give them a reputation. They have worked. ”
Chapman hit the last nine innings 8 ² / ₃, no cheaper than going to Moncada on Saturday.
The Yankees, however, only went 1-for-8 with runners-up and got their chance late in the game and injured themselves to slow down the meeting.
With the White Sox 2-1 on top of the top nine, Joey Gallo led and walked against Liam Hendriks, who entered in the eighth to bring out Joe Kelly.
Isiah Kiner-Falefa followed with one to the right, sending Gallo a third.
With Kyle Higashioka on a plate, Kiner-Falefa stole again. Higashioka hit the fly to the left, prompting Gallo to build the game. Kiner-Falefa, however, was thrown out trying to make it to the third quarter when Moncada cut off AJ Pollock’s throw and threw Anderson to cover the bag.
Kiner-Falefa called it a “bone game,” and showed he was not trying to throw the ball to make sure Gallo scored.
“It was a bad read,” said Kiner-Falefa, adding that he thought throwing over Moncada was a dish. “I am already in a wonderful place. … It will not happen. Each time you meet older guys, you will not be released a third time. ”
DJ LeMahieu followed and struck out with Aaron Judge on stage, leaving the scoring settled at the end of the ninth.
The Yankees won their eighth title, but had more chances. Giancarlo Stanton was nominated for Judge, but with runners-up and third and third, Hendriks defeated Josh Donald and Gleyber Torres with 98 mph-seamers.
The Yankees waited until the start of the season and Jordan Montgomery dropped out of the game to start scoring goals.
Through seven starts, Montgomery has just scored 2.29 runs in the playoffs, the fastest running in the Yankees. The closest is Nestor Cortes, at 3.83.
The Yankees have won more than three games in Montgomery this season. It was the same Saturday against Dallas Keuchel, a left-back who has been harassing the Yankees throughout his career.
Keuchel entered the game with a 2.23 ERA in nine games starting against the Yankees with a total of 6.86 ERA this year. This was slightly exacerbated by one tragedy that happened to the Guardian on April 20, when Keuchel conceded seven times.
Keuchel threw in five wireless innings on Saturday.
Montgomery was shaken from the start. Anderson took the lead at the bottom of the first and one and moved second to the Moncada base. Robert tore up the threat shortly after firing on Anderson who came on in the middle to give Chicago a 1-0 lead in the inning-pitch 26.
Montgomery and the Yankees stayed behind after Moncada hit homeoff until midnight.
Montgomery’s fight continued at the end of the fourth quarter. The latter has not won in his previous three games or three innings in the first Saturday, but has stopped the regular run of Adam Engel and Josh Harrison with one in the fourth. He made Anderson start playing twice, however, to continue two games.
Kiner-Falefa voted for one of the five and LeMahieu and the Judge issued two bids, setting up Rizzo with full buses.
But Rizzo, who has hit just five times with two RBI in his last 40 appearances, settled for a second to end the threat.
