New York Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge (99) watches his solo home run against the Miami Marlins during the second inning at Yankee Stadium. It's going to be a long season in south Florida and the Marlins are now 4-10 and already 7.5 games behind the Mets. Eight strikeouts. Severino faced 20 batters and seven managed to hit the ball out of the infield, which is more than I would've guessed. "Just got to continue".
A Yankees legend turned Marlins CEO/part-owner, Jeter revealed his plans late last week when talking to reporters in Miami. People would say to me, 'Well what about Mr. [George] Steinbrenner, do you think he's going to get on you?' If he was going to get on me because I'm not playing well, trust me, I'm feeling worse than he is.
"I'm just being honest with you guys, so that's why I'm not going", he said.
Wilson Ramos had three hits for the Rays and drove in two runs.
Yasmani Grandal hit a grand slam, Matt Kemp had a three-run homer and Hyun-Jin Ryu (2-0) struck out nine in six strong innings.
After that performance I get why Derek Jeter didn't want to come all the way to NY to watch his team.
Severino pitched six scoreless innings - giving up just a hit and a walk - and cruised as the Yankees pounded the Marlins by scoring runs in each of the first five innings to begin a 10-game homestand.
Stanton is looking forward to seeing his old manager, Don Mattingly, and some of his friends who were not traded away in the Marlins' winter sell-off. "They had us in harm's way pretty much all day long". The over is 15-6-2 in Miami's last 23 Tuesday games and Miami is 5-17 in their last 22 road games.
After a series of rain delays over the weekend, the New York Yankees are no doubt itching to get back on the diamond. He enters Friday hitting.241 with three homers, 10 RBIs and 23 strikeouts in 54 at-bats. Excluding his start against the Red Sox, Severino has allowed only two runs in 19 innings this year.
"It's not always gonna be easy, " Boone said before the game.
"It's part of the gig, part of the way we've lived our whole life", said Boone, who switched teams five times in his final nine seasons in the majors. With the season still so young, we're guessing this won't be the last time you'll see Marlins Man. The Yankees jumped out to a 2-0 first-inning lead when Gary Sanchez got up with the bases loaded and one out and ripped a liner that shortstop Miguel Rojas couldn't handle with a dive to his right.
He added that numbers were actually better this year than last. He's now lasted only 13.1 innings in three starts.
Stanton used his no-trade clause to refuse both of those proposed trades before accepting the Marlins' eventual deal with the Yankees that brought All-Star second baseman Starlin Castro to Miami along with prospects Jorge Guzman and Jose Devers.
