Yankees’ Miguel Andujar’s walk-off hit beats Indians
NEW YORK If they film a The NeverEnding Story reboot, it should be about this Yankees lineup.
Nos. 1-9, it just doesn’t quit.
Friday night was just another example why in their 7-6 win over the Indians on at Yankee Stadium.
Yankees veteran lefty CC Sabathia continued his incredible age-37 season with a dominant performance.
Sabathia hurled six scoreless innings against the Yankees’ 2017 American League Division Series opponents, his second start without giving up any runs in three outings.
Sabathia, who struck out a season-high seven, improved to 3-0 and watched his ERA fall to a minuscule 1.39. He gave up three hits two doubles but never let a runner reach third base.
Sabathia is undefeated in his last 14 regular-season starts since Aug. 19, posting an 8-0 mark.
Terrell Edmunds made a good story when he joined his brother, Tremaine (Bills), in the first round making history, but it was a bit of a surprising pick. Many expected Edmunds to be a second-day player.
From Steelers blog Behind The Steel Curtain:
“I’ll be honest when Terrell Edmunds got drafted by the Steelers my reaction was just silence. I wasn’t mad with the pick, I just was really surprised by it being so early. Don’t get me wrong, this was a huge area of need for the Steelers, but I just felt like this was a player that would’ve made more sense in the 2nd round.
“I had Terrell with an early 3rd round grade, so this is definitely considered a reach if we were just going based off my board.”
The Raiders left analysts scratching their heads after taking Kolton Miller 15th overall. Former Giants offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz noted, “Most [people] I spoke with had Miller with a late-second-round grade. So it’s not just me.”
