Jose Ramirez is putting up eye-popping numbers this season.
That trend continued Friday, when the breakout star led the Indians to a 9-3 win against the White Sox. Ramirez collected four hits with four runs scored, a home run (18) and three RBIs (55).
Ramirez’s latest hit barrage bumped his average to a cool .322 this season, while helping the Indians win their eighth-straight game.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi could have taken Gray out when Gomes came up, as he had Chad Green warming up in the bullpen. But again, Gray had fought out of trouble all night long; this was just the one time he didn’t.
Gray is a bulldog who doesn’t let a walk or an error get him down. He could have packed it in after giving up two unearned runs on three first inning errors, but he didn’t. Instead he gave the Yankees a chance to win and kept them in the game when their lineup wasn’t at its best and with Aaron Judge on the bench.
Gray was not perfect Thursday, but apart from one pitch, his start boosted the Yankees’ hope of winning a pennant. He put the Yankees in striking distance, gave them a quality six innings, fought out of trouble and put the bullpen in a position to hold a lead. Had it not been for one US Cheap Jerseys hanging curveball, the narrative would have been different in this one.
As it stands, Gray’s Yankees debut was a good one even Wholesale Jerseys China if he’d like that one pitch back.
