DUNEDIN, Fl. (AP) – Kyle Higashiokan is not Gerrit Cole’s personal favorite, but they will be very close together.
Higashioka twice earned money to support Cole, և New York Yankees on Monday night 3: Beat Toronto 1 point at the Blue Jays Temporary House on their spring training ground.
Higashioka caught Cole for the second consecutive start, winning after working with him during last year’s playoffs. Yankee No. 1 Gary Sanchez was behind the plate for the first start of Conley’s season in the opening game against the Blue Aces.
“Full-time, no,” said Yankee manager Aaron Boo. “She is OK. I like it because he usually ranks with the fact that he wants to give Gary a day off. But I also feel good when Gary caught him. So there will be games when Gary catches him. ”
Cole (2-0) allowed one run, three hits in six periods, eight hits and one walk. The tough right-handed man ended up in a mess, retiring his last 15 strokes, scoring seven. With 29 hits this season, he has matched David Coney to the top with three starts from the Yankee jar.
“I think the most satisfying part was after the kind of rough first action, when the two types calmed down, after that they stayed away,” said Higashioka. “Gerrit’s earnings, he really locked it up. It was amazing. “
Cole has 1.47 ERA. In the last 12 starts of his regular season, he has surpassed at least seven, which is the longest such period in Yankee history.
Robbie Ray (0-1) did not allow a shot while Rugned Odor was finishing 5th with one, and Higashioka was behind with a 416-foot kick to the right center for a 2-1 score.
“Everyone feels good about how Raine is being greeted today,” said Toronto manager Charlie Montuyo.
Higashioka made it 3-1 in the eighth. Ryan Boruchki left after a 427-foot fight.
“He’s locked up,” Cole said.
Last September 16, Higashioka played a three-game home game against the Blue Aces, also in a game started by Cole. Five of the 12 houses in his career came against Toronto.
Five: Astin Wilson, Darren O’Day and Aroldis Chapman. Chapman had his ninth first-chance save of the season, with the Yankees returning 5-5, winning only for the second time in a row this season.
Ray allowed two runs, three kicks, three walks և more than three seasons in his first start of the season after being sidelined with a broken elbow during late spring training. She was carrying her baby down the stairs of her rented house when she slipped and fell. Ray’s baby was not injured in the fall.
Five jars in Toronto gave Yankee four hits.
For Toronto this season, it was the fourth game at TD Ballpark, the first for the Yankees. The Blue Jazz are playing in their spring training from May until the Covid-19 restrictions in Canada և will likely return to New York Buffalo, their Triple-A team ը Toronto’s home in the shortened 2020 season.
“I guess I’m indifferent to that,” Cole said of playing in Dunedin. “It was good”:
Cole threw 42 pitches in the first two hours before settling in to need 56 in his next four.
He first allowed Randal Grichuk to land on RBI. During the second half, he worked on a double’s unhindered free-kick, hitting Alejandro Kirk, osh Osh Palacios and Marcus Semien.
Grichuk opened the ninth with a shot from Chapman, but was disappointed when he retired his next three shots.
CHANGE OF BAB STATIONS
In the starting line-up, Aaron Jud ian iancarlo Stanton had a backhand shot. The judge went from his usual second place to third, and Stanton from third to second. “It’s a factory that I really considered the whole spring to be left-handed,” Boone said. “I just felt like today was a good day to do it.”
Yankees CF Aaron Hicks asked for ստ permission from Boone not to start after Dunant Wright was shot dead by Minnesota police. “With what is happening in Minneapolis, he is having a hard time right now,” Boone said. “He converted in my office, he felt it was best not to be in the starting line-up tonight, I certainly support that.” Boone said that Stanton also thinks about not playing.
Yankees. RHP Clark Schmidt (right corner) received a cortisone blow և may resume throwing soon.
Blue Jays: OF Lourdes’s Guriel Jr. was activated by Covid-associated IL. He left Friday night’s game after two seizures with vaccine-related symptoms.
Yankees RHP Jameson Taillon (0-0) և Toronto ace Hyun Jin Ryu (0-1) are scheduled for Tuesday night.
