Mariano Rivera and Mike Mussina headline 2019 Hall of Fame Class

Earlier today, Major League Baseball announced the results of this year’s Hall of Fame voting, and two former Yankees received the call to Cooperstown: Mike Mussina and Mariano Rivera. These two pitching greats, along with Edgar Martinez and the late Roy Halladay, will officially be enshrined later this year on Sunday, July 21.

The Gleyber Torres Era Begins With a Win

Didi Gregorius got the Yankees on the board early. With two outs in the first inning, Gregorius smacked the 1-1 pitch from Jaime Garcia into the seats in right to quickly put the Yanks up 1-0.

One inning later, the Yankees were at it again. With two outs and two on, Austin Romine came to the plate. He laced a two run double down the right field line to give the Yankees a three run lead.

As for Luis Severino, he was dealing. The Blue Jays were unable to do anything offensively until the sixth inning. With one out, Severino served up a solo home run to Teoscar Hernandez, cutting their lead to two.

The Yankees got that run right back in their half of the sixth when Miguel Andujar doubled home Gary Sanchez. Gregorius then added a sacrifice fly in the seventh. 

David Robertson came on in the eighth to relieve Luis Severino, who had pitched seven strong innings. Robertson made quick work of the Jays and then handed the ball off to Aroldis Chapman to finish the job.  Although Chapman walked a couple of batters, he managed to get the job done and close out a Yankees' 5-1 victory. 

With his four hit performance today, Miguel Andujar is now 13 for his last 24 with ten extra base hits to go with his seven runs and RBIs. As a whole, the Yankees win their first series since their home opening two game set against the Rays. They will look to carry this momentum into tomorrow as they try for their third win in a row.
