New York Yankees vs. Oakland Athletics

14 May 2018

Severino only made one start against the Athletics in 2017 (0-0, 6.00 ERA and six strikeouts across six innings).

The New York Yankees are set to square off against the Oakland Athletics at Yankee Stadium. Matt Olson initially was called safe at the plate on the play.

Ninety seconds later, the call was reversed when a replay ruled the catcher had snagged the one-hop throw from left fielder Brett Gardner and his mitt's edge caught at least one thread of Olson's name on the back of his jersey. Lowrie went 7 for 26 with three RBI's against the Yankees pitching last season, and 3 for 6 with two RBI's in Friday's win.

Two more innings and another hour led to what has become commonplace this season: another walkoff win for NY.

Severino does not own a decision against the Athletics but has a 4.50 ERA in two starts against them.

The A's scored five runs in the fourth, getting a three-run homer from Davis - No. 11 on the season - and a two-run single by Canha, who was thrown out trying to stretch it to a double.

Judge sparked a four-run bottom half with a two-run homer off Andrew Triggs. RBI singles from Neil Walker and Miguel Andujar tied the game.

Chad Green, Dellin Betances and Chasen Shreve finished up for the Yankees.

His velocity was down 3-4 miles per hour on the cool afternoon from the 100 mph-plus heat that overpowered Boston on warm spring nights earlier in the week.

Chapman struck out Canha, and pinch-hitter Jonathan Lucroy followed with a 297-foot fly to left field. Walker has been seen taking ground balls at third and with Gleyber Torres locking down Second Base versatility will be key to him remaining on the team. Sanchez swiped a tag back at Olson, sliding to the plate.

"I didn't feel myself get tagged", Olson said.

Gregorius came into the game 0-for-his-last-28 and went hitless in his first two at-bats. "I'm usually wrong", Boone said.

Tyler Austin is batting a.234/.306/.506 slash with 5 home runs and 16 rbi but his bat has gone missing sine May started and if it stays that way he could be looking at a trip back to Scranton Wilkes-Barre. Then Aaron Hicks walked, setting up Walker to hammer reliever Chris Hatcher's 93-mph fastball and give the Yankees the victory. "Took a while to get loose and get my pitches going", he said. "I've played this game for a long time, so I know that good things are on the horizon for me".

"He's a guy who can fit in anywhere", Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge said of Walker. "Today it was big G coming through".

Didi Gregorius ended an 0-for-30 slide - on the afternoon of the Didi Gregorius Bat Day promotion - when he followed Judge's homer with a single.

Aroldis Chapman made the ninth inning an adventure.

After the homer, Triggs got Giancarlo Stanton to ground out, but he walked Sanchez.

After learning in March that the poised first baseman Greg Bird would need ankle surgery and miss the start of the 2018 season it devastated many who had high hopes for the power slugging infielder. RHP Tommy Kahnle (right shoulder tendinitis) threw Saturday and is to travel with Warren on Sunday. It was Davis' second homer in as many days.
