The Jose Trevino Game. NY 7 Baltimore 6 in 11 Innings

When he was a kid growing up in Texas, Jose Trevino used to play ball with his dad — a huge Yankee fan — in the backyard, and his dad would create scenarios where Jose was up with 2 out in the 9th of a game at Yankee Stadium, his dad would pitch a tennis ball and Jose would try to get the game-winning hit.

All these years later the scenario played out in real life — Trevino singling home the game-winning run in the bottom of the 11th to win the game for the Yankees, 7-6. Amazing.

Trevino also hit a homer earlier in the game, and went 3 for 4. The Jose Trevino Game.

Trevino told the story after the game. His dad passed away in 2013, so Trevino looked upwards after getting the walkoff. “It was definitely a special moment there, that’s why the tears,” explained Jose.

1. Monty Another Good Start. And No Decision

Jordan Montgomery started for the Yankees, which immediately opened up a side story — would Monty get another no decision. Monty was 0-1 3.35 coming in. He has pitched well in 9 straight starts — or at least 8 of 9 (his worst start in the stretch 4.1 innings, 2 runs) — and each time does not get a win.

The Yanks teased a Monty win in this one — he had a 3-0 lead heading into the 5th inning when he allowed a single, double, groundout for a run — and went into the 7th leading 3-1 when Austin Hays hit a leadoff homer to make it 3-2.

Michael King relieved him after the homer — and he got lit up. Single, walk, Homerun by Rougned Odor and it was 5-3 Baltimore.

There went Monty’s win. Again.

2. Yanks Get Monty 3 Runs on Solo Homers

The Yankees got Monty 3 runs on 3 solo homers. Anthony Rizzo hit one in the 1st, Jose Trevino hit one in the 3rd, and Gleyber Torres hit one in the 4th.

3. Like a Good Gleyber

Gleyber Torres hit his second homerun of the evening in the 7th to pull NY to within 5-4.

4. Trevino Ties Game in the 7th

With 2 outs in the 7th, Isiah Kiner-Falefa singled, and Marwin Gonzalez was hit by a pitch — bringing up Jose Trevino, who singled in a run to tie the game!

5. Trevino Walks It Off

Clarke Schmidt pitched a shutout 10th — not allowing the inherited runner on 2nd to score, but Baltimore plated the inherited runner in the top of the 11th to take a 6-5 lead.

But the Yanks tied it on a HUGE, 1-out single in the bottom of the 11th by Kiner-Falefa. Marwin Gonzalez singled Falefa to 3rd, and Jose Trevino walked it off with a single for the old ballgame.
