Let the Good Times Roll: NY 5 Boston 1; July 31, 2020

Suzyn Waldman sang the national anthem — and sounded Great — what a voice! Operatic! — Jordan Montgomery was BACK — pitching 5.2 innings of 1-run ball, and Aaron Judge hit a homer (his 3rd in 3 games) and threw a runner out at 1st who strayed too far off the bag on a liner to Judge in right — and the Yanks beat Boston solidly on a Beautiful (low humidity, warm 75-degrees) evening at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, in front of zero fans. Due to Coronavirus. Imagine reading that a year ago.

Waldman had promised that if Gerrit Cole ever joined the Yankees she would sing the National Anthem; he did and she did. He tipped his hat to her from the dugout when she finished.

DJ LeMahieu had 3 more hits and is hitting .455. Gleyber Torres and Gio Urshela had 2 hits apiece; Brett Gardner got the other Yankee hit.

Ryan Weber started and took the loss for the Sox. Their pitching staff is drastically different than last year — with David Price traded to the Dodgers (and he’s not playing this year due to Coronavirus), and Rick Porcello signing with the Mets.
