Yankees 13, Guardians 4: Bats breakout for double-digit barrage

Maybe an extra night’s rest was all this Yankees offense needed to reset from their lethargic performance in Houston. The bats struck early and often, providing a much-needed cushion as Gerrit Cole and Aroldis Chapman (especially the latter) looked far from invincible for stretches in this contest. It was a bit of a laugher in the end, with the Yankees bashing their way to a 13-4 victory, but there was plenty of intrigue in getting us there.

The Yankees made sure Guardians starter Kirk McCarty knew what he was in for from the word go, putting on a pair in the first via a DJ LeMahieu leadoff walk and Gleyber Torres one-out single.
