Washington, May 13 (Prensa Latina) When it seemed that the Chicago White Sox were breaking the New York Yankees’ winning streak, the power of their big men rescued them, and today they add another amazing comeback in the American Major League Baseball.
A three-run homer by Cuban Yoan Moncada tied the game in the bottom of the seventh inning, and it was expected that the White Sox would take advantage of the pressure of their fans to get the success.
However, in their next offensive at-bat the Bronx capitalized on their leading sluggers, with both Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton hitting two-run singles apiece to break the game.
Stanton had been the main protagonist of the match until Moncada’s homer, for hitting two balls out of the park, both in right field, the first time he had achieved it in his career full of home runs.
For the Mulos, the Venezuelan Gleyber Torres pinch-hit and hit unstoppable, to later score, while his compatriot Marwin González went 0-4, with a walk and a run scored.
Meanwhile, the White Sox’s Cuban army was not entirely effective: Moncada closed 5-1, José Dariel Abréu 5-0, Luis Robert Moirán 5-1 (scored) and Yasmany Grandal 3-0 (passport and scored), while Dominican Leury García finished 4-2, two trailers and stepped on the register once.
In other results this Thursday, the Oakland Athletics beat the Detroit Tigers 5×3, the Baltimore Orioles 3×2 the St. Louis Cardinals, the Houston Astros 5×0 the Minnesota Twins and the Texas Rangers 3×1 the Kansas City Royals.
Además, New York Mets aventajó 4×1 a Washington Nationals, Cincinnati Reds 4×0 a Pittsburgh Pirates y Philadelphia Phillies 9×7 a Los Angeles Dodgers.
