It was a BLOWOUT. the Yankees showed an unstoppable force for offense and an equally unstoppable defense. Fortunately, the Yankees won and are moving on to face the red sox. Luis Severino showed an unstoppable force at the pitcher’s mound. Severino started out in the top of the first inning with a 9 pitch inning. severino pitched all the way up to the top of the 5th inning.
The athletics showed a completely different strategy. it looked like they were attempting to change up the pitcher quite a bit in every inning, but they decided to go with Lou Trivino for quite a while.
The next most important aspect after good pitching is good hitting. The Yankees showed solid hitting throughout the entire game. With home runs by Aaron judge and Giancarlo Stanton. and home runs on the athletics by Chris Davis.
This was a game that didn’t seem to be much of an issue for the Yankees. like Moneyball all over again.
