Elevated to Ace, Luis Severino Shows His Electric Stuff

GIANTS 2, PIRATES 1: Brandon Belt doubled in the go-ahead run in the bottom of the seventh inning in support of starter Jeff Samardzija, who threw seven strong innings for host San Francisco. "That has to be a record - first home at-bat with the Yankees hitting into a triple play", Frazier said.

"Can laugh about it now", he said, according to ESPN.

"There are a lot of guys who are better", he said.

It was the big moment some have experienced in their home debuts for the Yankees but this was notable for another reason and it ended with center fielder Brett Gardner teasing him and another teammate jokingly asking him for the ball.

"We're still weeks away from making that decision", said the manager. "Gardy was laughing at me and someone asked for the ball I think, but it's unbelievable; you get into a hitter's count, and that's the way it goes. But it was a great experience from start to finish, and we got the W".

Gregorius lasted more than seven full seconds after Cincinnati third baseman Eugenio Suarez first caught the ball from Joey Votto, which is actually kind of impressive.

But Peraza didn't catch it, obligating Gregorius to run.

Matt Holliday was on third base and easily scored before the Reds retired Gregorius.

Didi Gregorius had a sacrifice fly and homered for the third time in two games for NY, which kicked off its nine-game homestand by improving to 4-1 in its last five.

They refused to enter, preferring to pray outside, in some cases filling the narrow alleyways of the Old City's Muslim quarter. Just hours later, three Israelis were stabbed to death in the Jewish settlement of Neve Tsuf in the Israel-occupied West Bank.

"That was maybe some of the best stuff he's had all year long", Girardi said.

It was the first triple play hit into by the Yankees since September 27, 2011, at Tampa Bay.

NY has won consecutive series after going 0-8-2 in series after sweeping Baltimore June 9-11.

Cincinnati turned a triple play for the first time since September 12, 1995, against the Florida Marlins.

Somehow, Frazier's triple play actually helped the Yankees.

Gregorious would be called out for leaving the base path, but through all that madness, the Yankees scored a run.

Frazier is happy to be close to his home in Toms River, N.J., of course, and thrilled to be with "such an exciting and prestigious team" like the Yankees - but what he loves most so far is the feeling of being back in the pennant race, on a team that entered its homestand Tuesday in possession of one of the AL's two Wild Card spots.

With a runner on first and no outs in the fifth inning, Gregorius dove to his left to snare Devin Mesoraco's grounder that was headed up the middle. He has pitched at least six innings in 10 of his last 11 starts, yielding only five home runs in that span. Montgomery was lifted after a single by Adam Duvall, and he exited to a standing ovation from the fans.
