Yanks No Hit Into 11th Inning, Win in 13 But Lose The Martian. NY 4 Milwaukee 3 in 13

There was momentary joy in Yankeeland when the Yanks — no hit into the 11th inning — came back twice in extra innings to beat Milwaukee 4-3 on a Kyle Higashioka walkoff double in the bottom of the 13th.

The comeback included Oswaldo Cabrera tying the game with a clutch RBI double for the 1st Yankee hit of the game in the bottom of the 11th, and a Giancarlo Stanton 2-run bomb to tie the game in the bottom of the 12th. Anthony Volpe almost won the game in the 10th with a drive to right that the Milwaukee rightfielder Sal Frelick made a spectacular catch on to save the game and preserve the no hitter at the time.

In between it all, someone named Anthony Misiewicz stepped in and was a pitching hero for the Yanks in the 13th inning.

Then right after the game, when Michelle Markowitz routinely asked manager Aaron Boone how The Martian Jasson Dominguez was doing, as he had missed the game with elbow soreness — Boone replied The Martian had torn his UCL and would be out 9 to 10 months.

And all the rejoicing on Yankee Twitter stopped on a dime, and it became one of the worst nights of the season for Yankee fans.

Earlier, Gerrit Cole had pitched 7 shutout innings of 3 hit ball, striking out 9 — but he was outdone by Corbin Burnes, who had a no hitter through 8 innings, then was relieved as he was at 109 pitches.

On a Sunday afternoon at Yankee Stadium. Heavy thunderstorms sweeping the area before and after the game.

“They had some chances to take the lead, and they were putting good at bats together and scoring first, and we were no hit for 10 innings,” said Gerrit Cole afterwards. “Then we started chipping, and then we came back and we started grabbing some momentum. So it was a cool combination of 2 narratives that resulted in the win for us.”

Cole said he hadn’t talked to Jasson Dominguez yet about his injury so asked to reserve comment until he did.

“Definitely very shocking news,” said Dominguez afterwards through the Yankee translator. “You’re never expecting for this to be the result. Now understanding what happened we have to look forward and go thru it.”

NY pulls back to 71-72, 8 games out of a wild card, with 19 games to play. Milwaukee drops to 79-63, in 1st place in the NL Central by 3 games over the Cubs.

1. Cole Tremendous

The game started out as a pitchers’ duel between Gerrit Cole — the leading candidate for Cy Young in the American League this year — and Corbin Burnes — who won the National League Cy Young in 2021.

Cole was on his game — although Milwaukee batters drove up his pitch count by fouling off a lot of pitches in the first 2 innings. Cole allowed consecutive 2-out singles in the 2nd and due to a wild pitch had 2nd and 3rd before getting the final out on a groundout to Gleyber Torres.

But Cole got his pitch count down with quick innings in the 3rd and 4th, and pitched a 3-hit shutout with 9 strikeouts and no walks through 7 innings. Unfortunately to that point the Yankee offense had no runs — and no hits.

Cole was helped in the 4th by a terrific play in left by Everson Pereira.

Cole lowered his ERA to 2.79 — he led the AL coming into the game and still leads. His slash line is 13-4 2.79.

2. Burnes No Hits Yanks for 8 Innings

Corbin Burnes entered the game with a 9-8 3.63 record, but he is considered one of the best pitchers in the National League — having won the Cy Young with an 11-3 2.45 record in 2021.

And Corbin Burnes was dominant — with the no hitter through 8 innings, striking out 7 and walking 2.

The Yanks’ only chance was in the 5th, when Burnes gave up his 2 walks. Giancarlo Stanton walked to lead off the inning, and Isiah Kiner-Falefa hit a fielders choice that put him on 1st instead. IKF stole 2nd, and then Evan Pereira walked after Anthony Volpe lined out. But Oswaldo Cabrera fouled out to end the threat.

Burnes was taken out for the 9th — with the score 0-0 he had no chance to win the game even if he pitched a no-hit 9th — he’d have to continue pitching into the 10th to have a chance at winning.

3. Peralta, Holmes, Kahnle Keep It 0-0

Wandy Peralta pitched a shutout 8th (walking a batter) and Clay Holmes pitched a 1-2-3 shutout 9th to keep the score 0-0.

In the 10th, with the inherited runner on 2nd, Tommy Kahnle walked the first batter but then got a HUGE double play, then got the final out to keep the score 0-0.

4. Yanks No Hit for 9 Innings

For the Brewers, Devin Williams pitched a no-hit shutout 9th — to complete the Brewers 9-inning no hitter.

5. Volpe Almost Wins It in 10th

Abner Uribe came in for the bottom of the 10th with the inherited runner on 2nd — the Yankees still with no hits. Uribe walked Giancarlo Stanton in between 2 strikeouts, sending up Anthony Volpe with 2 outs. Volpe ripped a first-pitch 98-MPH sinker to opposite field right that looked like a double off the bat — but Sal Frelick made a spectacular catch — running into and bloodying the mouth of centerfielder Joey Wiemer.

Frelick had started the game as the centerfielder and moved to right to replace Michael Canha in the late innings, with Wiemer coming in to play center.

6. Ramirez Nicked for Run in 11th

Nick Ramirez was nicked for a run in the top of the 11th as Tyrone Taylor ripped a 1-out double to score the inherited runner.

Ramirez allowed another single in the inning but escaped without further runs scored, and that was huge.

7. Oswaldo Ties It with 1st Hit of Game in 11th!

Finally in the bottom of the 11th, with 1 out, Oswaldo Cabrera broke up the no hitter with a 1-out double to right off Joel Payamps for a 1-1 tie!

Payamps then walked DJ LeMahieu and the Brewers intentionally walked Aaron Judge to load the bases with 2 outs. Gleyber Torres hit a shot up the middle that looked like a game-winning single but the 2nd baseman was right there.

8. Ramirez Ripped for 2 Runs in 12th

Joey Wiemer doubled to lead off the 12th for a run off Ramirez, and an out later, he scored on a sac fly by Andruw Monasterio — so all looked lost for the Yanks.

9. Giancarlo Ties It with 2-Run Bomb!

But Giancarlo Stanton led off the bottom of the 12th by fouling off 2 pitches then launching an 82-MPH slider from Andrew Chafin over the centerfield wall for a 3-3 tie!!!

10. Misiewicz (Who?) Holds Fort

Top the 13th the Yanks brought Andrew Misiewicz into the game, who they had picked up off waivers from Detroit in early July.

Inherited runner on 2nd. Tie game in the 13th. “Welcome to the NY Yankees, Anthony Misiewicz!” said Suzyn Waldman on the radio.

Misiewicz got a popout to shortstop, then a groundout to 3rd — both freezing the runner at 2nd.

Misiewicz then walked Frelick, and then threw a wild pitch to put 2nd and 3rd, 2 outs.

“Matt Blake goes to the mound to talk to Misiewicz who he just met today,” said John Sterling on the radio.

Misiewicz got a comebacker to him for an easy out and it was to the bottom of the 13th — tie score.

11. Higgy Walkoff

Bottom of the 13th against Hoby Milner and his unique sidearm delivery. Inherited runner (Everson Pereira) on 2nd. Oswaldo Cabrera struck out, but Kyle Higashioka RIPPED a double to left for the old ballgame!


Afterwards The Martian said he felt some minor discomfort in this elbow the Sunday before against Houston, but it really started to hurt on Wednesday. It was pointed out by reporter Max Goodman that The Martain made a throw from the outfield in Wednesday’s game.

UCL’s usually take 9 to 10 months to heal but Jeff Passan noted some players like Bryce Harper have come back in as little as 5 months and Shohei Ohtani was back in 7 months as a DH.
