Yankees win fourth straight behind Phelps’ best start of the year

David Phelps

The Yankees offense pounced on one of the better starting pitchers in the American League, and they even tacked on insurance runs during the late innings. Add in an excellent bounce-back start by David Phelps, and the Yankees got their fourth straight win, this one 7-0 against league-leading Athletics. Snapping a string of four straight losses, Phelps allowed just two hits through 6.2 innings and won for just the second time this season. He walked three — easily his biggest problem of the night — but he made it work for his best and second-longest start of the season. To keep the winning streak alive, the Yankees had to beat Sonny Gray, who came into the game with a 2.83 ERA but allowed three runs in the first two innings. The first three Yankees batters singled in the first inning, then four in a row reached base in the second. Derek Jeter had his fourth straight multi-hit game, Brett Gardner reached base three times, and Jacoby Ellsbury pushed his hitting streak to 17 games. Four runs in the eighth put the game well out of reach. Carlos Beltran was the only Yankees starter without a hit.

    What a fun game to be at. I love it when the coliseum is loaded with drunk A’s fans. Great atmosphere, can’t wait for the next two. Actually A’s fans are rather knowledgable and fun to talk with.

    Didn’t realize Ruby Dee had passed away. May she continue to do great things in the ether.

    Well deserved win for Phelps.

    Funny to me: Joe Girardi calls J.R. Murphy “Murph” in an interview I watched. Everyone gets the “Y” except if you already have one. Interesting rule.

  14. JimK June 14th, 2014 at 1:44 am

    Phelps, not a good interview; blaming his lack of offense to dictate how he pitches.

  15. Shame Spencer June 14th, 2014 at 1:49 am

    The players should start calling him Girard.

    The Yankees rotation has been shockingly good with phelps and Whitley stepping up. It would be really cool if sabathia and Pineda can come back healthy and produce. Then cash can trade for another bat and the yanks will be a legit threat to make the playoffs.

    Was watching the video highlights on mbl.com… Very strange 7 run production, mostly on bloop singles, seeing eye singles, sac flies… It requires lots of singles… not a really sustainable run production output. As long as the pitching holds up, there are forecast many nailbiters…

    bardos. Was the win a yankee display of excellence and dominance, no,,, But it was a game of control and soundness…..Did not play against themselves. 1 more would be mission accomplished

    Sorry, I had the wrong Ruby Dee
