Game 156 // Seventh Inning // Gleyber Earns the Belt

Two outs, four straight singles.

And the Yankees take Game 1 of the rematch.

 

Seventh inning, bases loaded, a fragile 3-0 lead, when Gleyber Torres comes up.

And he works a brilliant at-bat against Pressly. Full count, a slider low and outside, and he lifts it over the infield to just drop in for a hit. Two more runs score.

Yankees lead, 5-0.

 

 

 

Earlier in the game he hit a home run and RBI double.

His ninth career playoff game, just 22 years old—and now he’s got the masterpiece. 

 

It might be time this guy keeps the belt for good.
