RYU, are you going to do this even if you come back? TOR error, bullpen collapse, NYY 11 consecutive wins
Toronto became the sacrifice of the New York Yankees for 11 consecutive wins in the seventh inning with six runs.
The Toronto Blue Jays were completely defeated 1-9 in the second game of the 2022 Major League Baseball New York Yankees at Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on the 4th (Korea Standard Time).
Toronto, ranked second in the American League East, lost two consecutive games and recorded 15 wins and 10 losses this season. On the other hand, the leading Yankees, who have won 11 games in a row, recorded 18 wins and 6 losses. The difference between the two teams widened to 3.5 games.
Until the fourth inning, a tight pitching match between Toronto starter Alec Manoa and Yankees starter Jameson Tayon took place. The Yankees remained silent with four consecutive innings of three-way retreat until the fifth inning after a one-out, first and third-base chance failed in the first inning, while Toronto repeatedly failed to hit a follow-up hit with one out, second base with no outs, and second base in the fourth inning.
Toronto broke the zero balance first. In the fifth inning, Alejandro Kirk hit a double, and George Springer got on base with a catcher’s obstruction of defense, making two outs and runners on first and second base, and Bobissette hit an RBI timely hit.
The Yankees immediately launched a counterattack in the sixth inning. Aaron Hicks, who got on base with a hit after one out, failed to steal second base, but Aaron Judge scored a left-handed tie solo shot to Manoa at the end of the full count. He hit a 96-mile (154 kilometers) four-seam fastball in his eighth pitch and connected it to his ninth home run of the season.
The winner was the seventh inning when the Yankees achieved big innings. After Manoa went down, the batting line caught fire. With leader Giancarlo Stanton on base due to shortstop Vissette’s throwing error, Josh Donaldson and Marwin Gonzalez made 3-1 at once with an RBI double.
Since then, the first and third bases with one out continued with a hit by Ijaea Keener-Palepa, and third baseman Gonzalez stepped home when Jose Trevino grounded out to first base. He was caught in a rundown between third base and home, but he ducked down and skillfully avoided Guerrero Jr.’s tag and scored. Guerrero Jr. strongly protested that he was tagged, but the decision was not reversed. Video readings are already exhausted. On the replay screen, it was confirmed that Guerrero Jr.’s glove slightly brushed Gonzalez’s uniform.
The Yankees didn’t stop. Follow-up Hicks hit a timely RBI and Jersey hit a two-run double in a row, widening the gap further, and Stanton celebrated his 11th consecutive victory with a two-run shot in the last 9th inning.
Toronto starter Manoa failed to win despite three hits (one home run), one walk, seven strikeouts and one run in six innings. Since then, a large number of bullpen players, including losing pitcher Adam Simber, Julian Merriweather, and Andrew Vazquez, have donated eight points. Bissette, Guerrero Jr. and Kirk’s two hits faded into defeat.
Yankees starter Taiyoun earned his second win (one loss) of the season with five hits, four strikeouts and one run in six innings. In the batting line, the jersey, which had two hits and three RBIs in five at-bats, including a home run, stood out
