In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning — April 22, 2019: Yanks 4 Angels 3

This one ended after 3am in the morning, NYC time.

  • Gio Urshela was the Hero — not only can he PICK IT at 3rd base, but he won the game twice with his bat — once in the 12th on a sac fly to plate Clint Frazier who had led off with a double, but when Aroldis Chapman couldn’t hold that lead, Gio won it again in the 14th with a single to plate Gleyber Torres.
  • Clint Frazier sprained his ankle, but played through it and got that double in the 12th, and swore he would play Tuesday.
  • Jonathan Holder held them (shutout ball for the 13th and 14th) and
  • J.A. Happ, after allowing a 2-run homer in the 2nd, pitched 7 strong innings (only 2 runs) and afterwards said “that was a fun win.”

I fell asleep at 11:30 and didn’t watch much of this, but kept getting awoken by @NYSportsChick (daughter) and the wife talking about the game — with @NYSportsChick exclaiming Clint Frazier this and Gio Urshela that — she really should have done this writeup.

In the Waking Hours

Luke Voit hit a homerun in the 1st to put the Yanks on the board, and Gleyber Torres hit a sac fly in the 3rd to tie the game. Matt Harvey pitched 6 strong innings. GOOD FOR HIM. Rooting for Matt.

For the Yankees, most of the pitchers lowered their ERA. Adam Ottavino 2 shutout innings, Tommy Kahnle 1 shutout inning, and Luis Cessa 1 shutout inning.

The Boxscore

 Post Game

After the game the Yankees optioned Joe Harvey to AAA and brought up Jonathan Loaisiga. Harvey had been pitching well so this seems to be a roster maneuver thing.
