Happy Happ Beats Hapless Sale — May 30, 2019: NY 4 Boston 1

J.A. Happ is an off-speed pitcher, who when his off speed pitch is off speeding, he can be brilliant. When it doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do, he can get hit, and Yankee twitter can be all over him. Such has been the case this year.

In this game — Happ’s off speed was off speeding and it stymied the Red Sox. Happ pitched 5 innings of 3 hit ball, allowing 1 run. Meanwhile, the Yankees jumped on the hapless Chris Sale — scoring 4 runs on him off 7 hits in 5 innings. Sale is now 1-7 4.35 on the season.
