Aaron Judge and Aaron Hicks force Yankees over Astros to a big comeback victory

Yankees manager Aaron Boone said earlier that Astros’ arrival in the city in the coming days would lead to a “handshake”. In eight rounds, however, it sounded like a kick. dark prediction.

But then the Yankees did what seemed impossible, making the bright season shine. Behind 6: 3 since the first shift and without a hit, they burst into ninths for four races, sending Astros’ 44,047 joking audience out of the seat and then out of the stadium, believing anything is possible, enjoying a 7-6 win against the team on Thursday night. whom they hate.

Aaron Hicks ran a triple home closer to Ryan Pressly, who entered and immediately walked the first two bats he faced, putting Hicks in a row to the right. Aaron Judge, who headed to the arbitration with the Yankees on Friday, defeated single-player reliever Ryne Stanek to continue his magical, MVP-worthy season.

“It’s a pretty special game for June,” Boone said.

“We don’t want to lose you,” Hicks said. “We’re a team that will continue to fight until the end.”

If the next three games in this series are like an opening game, it’s an exciting showcase for two teams with America’s best records. The Yankees are 52:18, the third best in franchise history after 70 games. This is the third best start in the last 93 years of the Premier League’s 70 games. It could be the hardest and most dramatic of them all.

“We’re never out of the game,” Judge said.

Astros jumped up early against Jameson Taillon, battling a rare inefficient outing. Before registering for the first shift, he handed Alex Bregman home for three races. The Yankees retaliated against Giancarlo Stanton’s three hits in the first half against Astros’ starter Framber Valdez, but Valdez made a living and the bombers did not get a new hit until the ninth round.

Yordan Alvarez, who hit two home throws against the forest in Houston on Wednesday, scored three races from Taillon in the third shift. In one stretch, Valdez finished 14 consecutive Yankees strikers.

In the last seven years, Astros has three times left Yankees out of the offseason, including the 2017 ALCS, which Astros won with seven games. When it turned out that Astros was involved in a brand theft scandal this season – which might have robbed the Yankees of a world series – Astros immediately became the enemy of the state of New York. Jose Altuve joked before and during each shot and responded with two doubles and singles.

The Astros seemed to silence the people, but their court brought them in. Pressly walked Stanton and Gleyber Torres to start the final ninth, and Hicks then crept his third home run of the season.

“Man, that sounds amazing,” Hicks said. “If you make contact with the ball and you don’t even feel it and you know you rinsed it well, especially in a situation where there are two men in front of me who got a base for me and come up big. And the draw was huge.”

After Jose Trevino’s single, Pressly pulled toward Stanek, who knocked out Joey Gallo, and then Stanek made a decisive mistake with two outs when DJ LeMahieu walked.

That brought the judge to the table. Stanek was 3-0 behind and looked like he was around the MLB home run leader. Judge was given the green light and threw the ball into the left field, sending Trevino home in a race, and the players in the Yankees’ ditch flowed Judge into the field.

Three reliefs – Lucas Luetge, Albert Abreu and Miguel Castro – made 3 ¹ / ₃ goal-free substitutions to make the comeback come true and the Yankees won their ninth season, the baseball top.

“Wow,” the judge said. “Just from top to bottom, just starting to get to the base, just take Hicks there and some guys at the base to tie it up. There are a lot of good bats around. I mean [Stanton] I started, I can get through every man, every speech was important. It was a great time working for one of the best closers in the game, taking him to this place, and then Hicks, who became great to us. “
