Aaron Hicks powers Yankees past Cubs, setting up sweep opportunity

Posted by & filed under !Se Wr.

The era of the Cubs may beshort-lived.After sweeping the nation last year with a stunning World Series win against the Indians, the Cubs are on the brink of getting swept themselves this weekend.Pitching has been a big problem for the Cubs (16-14) this season, as the defending champs have struggled to get out of the first inning. The Yankees continued Chicago’s unsavory trend by putting up five runs in the first inning Saturday, which led to an 11-6 win.Aaron Hicks went 4 for 5 with three runs scored, a home run, three RBIs and a stolen base to lead the Yankees https://www.metsedge.com/new-york-mets/mike-piazza-jersey . The outfielder has been one ofthe Yankees’ surprising heroes this season, and is now batting a cool .355.Yankees second baseman Starlin Castro continued blasting his former club. He collected three hits with two runs scored, a home run, three RBIs and a walk. He is batting .381 this season.Things got so bad for Cubs pitchers Saturday that backup catcher Miguel Montero had to pitch the ninth inning. He was the only Cubs “pitcher” to leave the game without an earned run.Things will likely pick up for the Cubs. Guys like Anthony Rizzo, Ben Zobrist and Willson Contreras will heat up, the bullpen will calm down, and the starters will learn how to actually start games. Chicago fans will likely give the team a bit of leeway after last season, which is good because this team is still capable of producing something special despite the slow start.At least Montero wasn’t the only catcher forced to pitch Saturday. The Twins had to use backup catcherChris Gimenez for 2/3 of an inning in their 11-1 lo s to the Red Sox.Studs of the NightPirates ace Gerrit Cole was held to a no-decision Saturday, but he dazzled the Brewers by allowing just one run off of https://www.metsedge.com/new-york-mets/dwight-gooden-jersey two hits with eight strikeouts in seven innings. Pittsburgh ultimately beat Milwaukee 2-1 in 10 innings, and Cole lowered his ERA to 3.14 for the season.Rockies trio Nolan Arenado, Charlie Blackmon and DJ LeMahieu combined for eight hits, five runs scored, five RBIs and a home run (Arenado) in a 9-1 win over the Diamondbacks. The Rockies and Diamondbacksboast two of the most explosive lineups in MLB, buttheir pitching will be the difference between a solid season and po sible World Series contention.Dud of the NightGiants starting pitcher Ty Blach was hammered for 10 runs (eight earned) off of 11 hits in just three innings of work. Blach was pounded by the Reds early and often, which led to a 14-2 lo s. The Giants are now a disappointing 11-20 this season, and are in desperate need of pitching help with Madison Bumgarner still injured.HighlightHouston’s Carlos Correa is not your average shortstop.OK, @TeamCJCorrea. You’re just showing off Todd Frazier Jersey now. https://t.co/wJHLXIDcQL pic.twitter.com/v0XEx5khL2 MLB (@MLB) May 7, 2017What’s Next:Nationals (21-9) at Phillies (12-17) 2:35 p.m. ET Ryan Zimmerman hit another home run Saturday, continuing his unmatched form so far this season. Washington will send Tanner Roark(3-1, 4.04 ERA) to the mound toface off against Jeremy Hellickson (4-1, 3.18) in an intriguing pitching duel. The Nationals have won four straight games, and are 12-3 on the road this year.

Meet Tyler Wade, the newest Yankees youngster to know

Posted by & filed under !SE PP.

Aaron Judge. Gary Sanchez. Greg Bird. Tyler Wade?With Starlin Castro’s hamstring injury, suffered Monday, Wade is set to join the Yankees on Tuesday as he makes his case as the next member of the Baby Bombers. It’s not yet official but expected.Before Wade, 22, gets the chance to steal headlines in the Big Apple, https://www.marlinsedge.com/miami-marlins/andre-dawson-jersey here are five things you need to know about the promising utility man.1. Wade is not a “bomber”Unlike Judge or Sanchez, Wade won’t steal the hearts of New Yorkers with the long ball. In 71 games this season at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Wade has just five homers matching his 2016 total in 133 games at Double-A Trenton.”Don’t worry about the power numbers. Your job is to get on base, Trenton manager Al Pedrique said of Wade last season. You can steal some bases, bunt for base hit, hit the ball where it’s pitched. I know he’s capable of driving the ball to all the fields. I told him: the power will come.”2. Wade makes up for his lack of power in the basesDon’t let Wade’s quiet bat concernyou, Yankees fans. Instead, watch the effective base stealer work after he reaches on a bloop single.His speed helps him more on the offensive side. His bat works better when he stays in the ‘Put the ball in play’ mode, one scout told the New York Post.Wade has 51 stolen bases between Trenton and Scranton/Wilkes-Barre over the last two seasons and has only been caught 12 times.In the month of June, Wade is 11-for-12 on stolen base attempts.3. Wade can play just about anywhereWade has started at least one game at six different positions this season (2B, SS, 3B, LF, CF, RF). He sees the most time at shortstop (44 games), but his versatility has drawn comparisons to Chicago Cubs stalwart Ben Zobrist.The Yankees already have Didi Gregorious excelling in the majors and Gleyber Torres as their top prospect, so Wade’s futurelikely won’t be at shortstop. However, there’s always a roster spot for an effective utility man who can move around the field https://www.marlinsedge.com/miami-marlins/starlin-castro-jersey , get on base and swipe bags.4. Wade nearly started the season as the Yankees’ starting SSWith Gregarious’ injury in the World Baseball Cla sic, Wade had a shot to start the season in the bigs. He did just about everything he could, batting .357 during spring training before being sent to Triple-A in favor of Ronald Torreyes.Wade will likely remain behind Torreyes when he gets called up but get opportunities to start against right-handed pitching.5. Wade found out he was drafted on TVWade’s agent didn’t quite fulfill his duties back in 2013.A fourth-round selection by the Yankees, Wade didn’t know he was taken until he heard his name on television.”I heard my name on TV,”said Wade, who was supposed to be alerted by his agent prior to being picked (via bronxpinstripes.com). “The fourth round comes around and it’s the Yankees pick and I don’t get https://www.marlinsedge.com/miami-marlins/jeff-locke-jersey a phone call, and I’m like, ‘what the heck is going on?’ I hear my name and thinking, ‘am I hearing things? Is this really happening?'”Wade, who hit a staggering .524 as a senior at Murrieta Valley High School in California, celebrated by buying a new Yankees cap.

Results from an MRI will be known Sunday, but Yost seemed optimistic.”You’re always nervous, especially when youlose two All-Stars. You never want to lose a third,” Ken Griffey Jersey he said, adding that Cuthbert also suffered a contusion but is expected to be OK.”We’ll just see what the MRI shows.
