The Yankees losing streak only lasted one day as they defeated the Phillies by the score of 8 to 3. It was a good day offensively for everyone but two of the hitters. The two Austins were the ones who didn’t have hits on the day. Now Austin Aune did have two walks but did also have two strikeouts too.
2012 draftee Peter O’Brien had a good day today. He went two for four with his first extra-base hit which was a double. Defensively he allowed two stolen bases. Hopefully his defense isn’t too bad because the system needs a decent defensive catcher who can hit also.
Miguel Andujar went one for three on the day. With a strike out and two walks to round out his day it was a good day for the 17 year old. Now he was caught stealing 2nd base and that was his second caught stealing on the year.
Chaz Hebert started the day and went three innings of work. He struck out four batters during his three innings and didn’t walk a batter. Two hits and no runs rounded out Herbert’s day to go along with two groundball outs to one air out.
Luis Niebla pitched five innings today and gave up nine hits. He allowed three runs but only two are earned. He didn’t walk a batter but did strike out three.
Overall it was a good day for the Yankees. It will be interesting to see how long this winning streak lasts.
