Yankees down Giants 7-3 in good offensive showing
By Brandon B
Yankees win! The Yankees go into San Francisco and take game one of the series and win it 7-3! The young guys went after Madison Bumgarner early and often. While most the team is still hurt, this team is still finding ways to win.
Gleyber Torres got the party started in the first with an RBI double scoring DJ LeMahieu. Cameron Maybin knocked in an rbi with a basehit to center making it 2-0 Yanks! Gio Urshela hit in the 3rd run of the game in the 3rd with an rbi single. In the 5th, Luke Voit doubled in LeMahieu to extend the lead and fast forward one inning later, youngster Thiro Estrada picked up his first MLB rbi to make it 5-1 Yanks. Luke Voit mashed in two more insurance runs in the 9th with his 8th home run of the season closing out a strong day at the plate for the Yankees!
Paxton got the win tonight going 5.2 innings allowing 5 hits on 3 runs and notching 8 punch outs. He wasn’t as dominant as his previous two starts but got the job done!
The Yankees will look to keep rolling today in game 2 vs San Francisco with JA Happ on the bump!
