Bats Back Dominant Pitching in Spring Finale

Sonny Gray, Dellin Betances, David Robertson, Jonathan Holder, Ben Heller and Aroldis Chapman were nothing short of fantastic on Monday evening. The Yankees group of pitchers combined to strike out 14 and allowed just four hits.

Gray started the game and lasted five innings. The Vanderbilt alum had his command working from the get go, and the result was seven strikeouts and no walks. Sonny is ready for the regular season as he dazzled all night long. The lone run allowed was on a Tyler Flowers RBI groundout, following an Ozzie Albies double.

When Betances and Chapman both entered the game in the sixth and ninth, respectively, they promptly struck out each batter that the pair faced. Robertson didn’t allow a baserunner either.

Giancarlo Stanton and Didi Gregorius both connected for two-run home runs, recording the first pair of Yankee hits in the game. Stanton absolutely obliterated the baseball into the second deck of Sun Trust Park’s left field stands.

The fifth and final run was scored off of Peter Moylan in the top of the eighth inning when Shane Robinson doubled home Trey Amburgey.

The games count now, and this Yankees team looks ready. With a successful spring in the books, Opening Day is set for this Thursday. First pitch is scheduled for 3:37 pm with Luis Severino taking the mound for New York.
