Yankees bats wake up as Wheeler delivers in debut

Zelous Wheeler

It’s a bit much to suggest that Zelous Wheeler showed up and got the Yankees offense on track, but the new guy most certainly played his part. Wheeler’s first big league hit was a solo home run in a much-needed 7-4 win against the Twins. It snapped a five-game losing streak and matched the Yankees best offensive game since May 7. Wheeler had two hits, one in each of the Yankees’ multi-run innings. His home run came two batters after Carlos Beltran put the Yankees in front with a three-run homer in the fifth, and Wheeler’s seventh-inning single came as four straight Yankees reached base in a three-run outburst. With all of that offense, the Yankees finally picked up the slack for Masahiro Tanaka, who failed to record a quality start for the first time in his big league career. Tanaka allowed four runs in seven innings, but snapped a personal two-game losing streak.

    Glad that Wheeler got his first bomb and that the Yankees backed Tanaka on one of his average days.

    There you go, great win!

  5. MTU July 3rd, 2014 at 10:57 pm

    So much for my bold predictions.

    Next time I’ll keep my trap shut.

    At least MT got the win and the Yankees broke their losing streak.

    Congrats to Zelous. What a way to start.


  6. MTU July 3rd, 2014 at 11:03 pm

    And one more thing.

    Thanks Phil for being yourself.

    Resume being good against your next opponent.

    Hey UnKnown! Thanks for bringing them some mojo! Gonna read through the IGT tomorrow to see what you had to say on site. I missed most of it but will See it all on replay. Tanaka-Deal-DRob, nice work. Happy Fourth to you!

  8. UnKnown July 3rd, 2014 at 11:08 pm

    Sounds great J. AL. Have a great 4th

  9. Erica in NY July 3rd, 2014 at 11:11 pm

    J Alfred-

    I received an email from a friend that you were talking about me tonight. I haven’t posted on here in YEARS. I didn’t realize you wanted me back.

    I don’t know what goes on in this blog anymore. I do not read the comments. I do not read Chad’s reporting. I have nothing to do with this blog anymore. I looked at the comments because I was warned my name was getting tossed around.

    Here’s the deal. I know you love to torment people. For some reason, I will never know I am a person you really don’t like and a target. Why don’t you just leave me alone??? I feel sorry for you that you feel the need to hang on to feelings like this for a person who hasn’t posted on here in YEARS. So really- just leave me alone. Fight with whomever you are going to fight with. Just leave me alone

  10. MTU July 3rd, 2014 at 11:12 pm

    I just reported what she told me. No thanks needed.

    Time to turn things over to the night crew.

    See you all for the Breakfast club.


  11. jmills July 3rd, 2014 at 11:14 pm

    There’s only one J Alfred Prufrock,…unless Sylvia Plath says so.

  12. Erica in NY July 3rd, 2014 at 11:16 pm

    J- I haven’t spoken to jerkface in years either. Really. Its pointless. Lets just move on

  13. pete22 July 3rd, 2014 at 11:18 pm

    Twighlight Zone Tonight. Good win. Tanaka might have had a much worse fate against a better team or in another park, but he deserved a better fate in some of his other games so this is a makeup

  14. jmills July 3rd, 2014 at 11:23 pm

    I like this song by, Harlequin.

  15. yankeefeminista July 3rd, 2014 at 11:28 pm

    Nice win; good work, Unknown!

    Meanwhile we had another thunderstorm in Trenton both weather wise and this time with the bats. I see Judge hit another dinger in Tampa. And Severino with another great outing. Get those two up to Trenton! ;)

    FYI, that’s not the real Erica.

  16. Missing Cano July 3rd, 2014 at 11:36 pm

    zero value throw-in prospects Aaron Judge and Luis Servino do well again in Tampa tonight

    Judge goes deep with this 3rd homerun and throws in two walks

    Severino pitches six shutout innings with 6 Ks

    not bad for guys the yanks will just use as throw-ins

  17. ltl July 3rd, 2014 at 11:36 pm

    Pat M

    Read your earlier comment about Wheeler being previewed tonight–I had the same thought. Question is, who needs a 3rd baseman, utility player who reminds some of us of Charlie Hayes (thought I would help the marketing dept.)?

  19. Erica in NY July 3rd, 2014 at 11:38 pm


    I really did my own posting. But since I haven’t posted on here in years I could see why you would doubt it. I sent a mutual friend a message for you as proof.

    On that note, I am going to say good night now. I hope everyone has a great holiday. I do not expect to post here anymore so this will serve as goodbye again. I really really do wish to be left alone

  20. jmills July 3rd, 2014 at 11:40 pm

    rm, you got it, J Alfred Prufrock has been a friend to me. Always an ear! :D

  21. ltl July 3rd, 2014 at 11:40 pm


    Really appreciate your insights and inside info. MTU is correct, do what all us old frts do, wait till the kiddies stop peeing in the pool, then jump in! Where’s Shame? Isn’t it time for Lohud at night?

  22. Missing Cano July 3rd, 2014 at 11:41 pm

    another Pat-M-ism just every chance to rag on Gardner

    “it doesn’t matter who is throwing to him, Gardner cannot hit a pitch in that zone.”

    there are plenty of problems with this team and Gardner is NOT one of them yet you post this random paddle comment because of your pinned in a corner on the childish Ellsbury vs. Gardner rant and that sir is where the bias comes from

  23. jmills July 3rd, 2014 at 11:41 pm

    Harlequin did a better job than I could while writing, ” Thinking of you “.

  24. G. Love July 3rd, 2014 at 11:49 pm

    I know I’m excited and we haven’t won in awhile, but I hope the baseball Gods let Zealous Wheeler stick with us. That’s all. He brought an energy to that team tonight we’ve been sorely lacking.

  25. mick July 4th, 2014 at 12:26 am

    Been out at a wedding, did Zealous provide the spark I predicted? Know he hit a HR.
    That could be what they need , the next Solarte, oh oh!

    Now let’s sweep these chumps..

  26. Hankflorida July 4th, 2014 at 1:04 am

    Tonight took me back to the “Days of Wine and Roses” that I have missed when we were the Bronx Bombers. Playing three table setters in the outfield instead of one means that you have to pick up some power in the infield and Wheeler for one night gave us that one bat. I was also glad to see three runs from moving the line. When the outfielder play shallow for banjo hitters, Ryan could not score on a ground ball single to left from second. This is a problem unless you playing with Murders Row and Cano where seven guys can reach the seats and keep the outfielders deep so they can’t hold the runners from scoring. I am willing to bet that Cashman never considered that when he loaded the team with banjo hitters. Going for a power outage changes the whole dynamics of the game.

  27. bardos July 4th, 2014 at 9:22 am

    I never watch a Yankee game. I can follow it on MLB Gameday and have subscribed to audio and can listen on WFAN. The thing is I am in Europe and the six hour time difference with EST makes it difficult to even listen.

    What I do do, (no pun) is watch the Yankees video highlights on Sometimes there are 3, 4 or more short videos of the best Yankee game moments. This year, Brett Gardner appears in most of them.

    This means he appears to be the player most involved in scoring moments. He is a valuable piece. Not a good idea to move him. If he were surrounded by a few power guys, or if the Yankees had any other valuable pieces, no one would be calling for his trade.

    Traditional Chinese medicine is especially effective in the treatment of coughs because of its careful differentiation of the various types. For example, a cough due to heat produces sticky phlegm that is difficult to expectorate; it is treated with cooling, moistening herbs and acupuncture points that clear heat from the lungs. On the other hand, a cough due to cold is accompanied by chills and copious mucus; it is treated with warming, drying herbs and the application of moxibustion.
