About Last Night: Yankees 10, Twins 7

by Derek McAdam

June 10, 2022

***

The Yankees took the rubber game from the Minnesota Twins in an offensive battle, as the Yankee bullpen hurlers were lights out in the Thursday night game.


Quick Stats:

  • Gerrit Cole: 2.1 IP, 8 H, 7 ER, 2 BB, 3 K

  • Aaron Hicks: 2-for-5, HR, 3 RBI

  • Joey Gallo: 2-for-5, 2 HR, 3 RBI

  • Yankees' Bullpen: 6.2 ip, 1 hit, 0 runs

Big Story:

While Gerrit Cole allowed five home runs, the most of his career, the Yankees came through on offense and put up some runs on the board. Cole was not able to last three innings, but the bullpen was able to put together over six innings of shutout baseball.


This is a Yankees team that keeps battling back. Again and again. Over and over.


Player of the Game:

Aaron Hicks delivered the big hits down the stretch, giving the Yankees their 41st win of the season.


Notable Performances:

Joey Gallo’s two home runs helped propel the Yankees to this key win, but the entire Yankee bullpen did a solid job in keeping the Twins offense scoreless after Cole was removed.


Better to Forget:

The starting pitching did not fare well for the Yankees in Minneapolis, whatsoever. This especially goes for Gerrit Cole last night, who had a terrible start. He began the game byu allowing back-to-back-to-back homers. It was bad. Bad.


Luckily, the Yankees still managed to win two of three games.


My Take:

This is a Yankee team that feels different from years past. Even though we are just a little over a week into June, the Yankees feel like a team that can win any game, no matter what the circumstances are. That was last night’s game. The Yankees were down 3-1, then 6-3, then 7-3, but still managed to score seven unanswered runs. What makes the win even better is that the two best offensive performers for the Yankees were Hicks and Gallo, who have both received criticism for their lackluster offensive performances. It was good to see both of these players have good nights. Let’s hope that continues going forward. Although the starting pitching was sub-par, there is a good chance they improve some from this past week.


Next Up:

The Yankees head back home to Yankee Stadium for a three-game series against the Chicago Cubs, beginning at 7:05 p.m. EST tonight. Wade Miley is set to take the mound for the Cubs while Luis Severino is set to take the mound for the Yankees.

This year's team does feel different. In recent years, it was always one group that sunk the team in a given game: starting pitching, bullpen, hitters (generally and situationally). Now it seems that if one fails, the others pick up the team. I agree with Fuster about seeing where we are on June 26; I've been saying for a long time that May 26-June 26 would tell us about this team, and we're nearly halfway through that period. Considering just the good teams, so far they swept LA at home, split 2-2 with Tampa Bay on the road, and took 2 out of three on the road at Minnesota (the last win in humiliating fashion). You play .700 ball ag…

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
