The Yankees Come Back from 5-0, Take the Game 7-5 with a WALK-OFF Homer from Giancarlo Stanton

The Yankees are a team that takes advantage of the weakest links of their opponents, game after game. For much of baseball, this is found in their bullpen, which is often made up of solid-enough major league pitchers who couldn't quite find it as a starter or only have a solid pitch (or two) that they can really pitch.

Fortunately for the Yankees, they seem to keep finding new gems in their system. Last year it was the inception of Chad Green from starting pitcher to shut-down reliever. This year, their latest magic has been found in Jonathan Holder, a man who has been living up to his name for the Yankees this year.

With Holder stopping the Mariners attack (and Chapman in the 9th), the Yankees offense was able to knock the Mariners King off his throne. They then took advantage of the weaker arms in the bullpen as they collected 5 runs in the last third of the game, most importantly off the bats of Gary Sanchez and Giancarlo Stanton.

And without further ado, let's get to the recap:

German Heroic While The Bombers Bomb

Domingo German pitched seven strong innings giving up only two hits, one earned run while striking out nine batters and the Yankees hit four homers to break the pizza drought and beat a very hot team fairly easily. The homers were fun but German pitching seven full with all those strikeouts and no walks was the big story. He was not treated justly by the Yankees' defense in the first. But German was not fazed and the result was a 7-2 win.

By the time the dust was settled and Bryce Harper was on the training table, the Yankees took the first game of their home stand, 3-0.

An Andujar granny and Grampy CC's pitching leads Yanks, 7-2

On a day when Jordan Montgomery was slated for Tommy John surgery this coming Thursday, the Yankees drafted catchers in the first and second round of the draft and Aaron Judge rode the pines, the Yankees opened a series in Toronto without any possibility of a rain-out. The fact turned out well for the Yankees who won a tidy game by the score of 7-2.
