ST. PETERSBURG – The campaign has started. In Jose Trevino’s eighth home game Wednesday night to give the Yankees a 5-4 win over the Rays at Tropicana Field, Aaron Boone and Aaron Judge were beating the drum. Trevino must be one of Yankee’s many All-Stars.
“Oh, without a doubt. “What he’s doing this year is special,” said Judge, whose two home runs also helped the Yankees Wednesday. “I think he will continue to do that for several years and I think so far he deserved the right to go to Los Angeles this year and represent the Yankees and the elite.”
“I know there are a lot of great players out there in the league, and especially the one we just finished, Alejandro Kirk of the Blue Jays is another great player in this league,” Judge continued, “but I think for sure. [has] he was offered this opportunity and he is taking full advantage of it “.
The Yankees (51-18) are now 14-4 after defeats this season, winning their 18th straight game of the season and their second straight streak against Reyes (37-32). It has 26-12 against the American League East. They have the best record in baseball and completed the road trip of six games with 4-2.
The judge, who has an arbitration hearing to decide his salary for 2022 via zoom on Friday morning, brought the Yankees to the point where Trevino could make a difference. He defeated the leaders of the 26th and 27th place in the hammer on Wednesday night.
It was the sixth home game of the season and the 22nd of his career. The six multi-dwelling games in the first 70 games of the team are the second most numerous in the history of baseball, according to ESPN Stats and Info. Only Reggie Jackson’s seven in 1969 is better.
Judge’s first hostage was a 396-foot shot by Shane Baz in the fourth inning. His second was a magical run at home 406 feet above the catwalk at The Trop in seventh, cutting the Rays’ lead in one run.
Hearing the arbitration is more than a $ 4 million difference. The judge wanted $ 21 million, the Yankees offered $ 17 million. The Bombers did offer Judge an extension of more than $ 230 million, including this season, but could not reach an agreement before the Opening Day deadline.
Trevino Homer was a clown.
It was his third consecutive home run in the eighth inning or later this season, tying him with Anthony Rizzo for the team’s maximum. The two-shot, 406-footer shot gave the Yankees their first lead of the night and their 20th win of the season.
It was the career-high of the sixth home game for Trevino at 113 bat-bats this season, one more than his total at 285 at-bats all last year.
It is not just his insult.
Trevino has been the key to the Yankees’ success in pitching this season. On Wednesday night, he defeated Jordan Montgomery from a jam-packed base, picking Taylor Walsh in third.
“This choice really helped me,” said Montgomery. “It was awesome. Wonderful behind the plate, excellent cooperation with him and aggressively always comes great “.
Montgomery just wasn’t sharp from the start, but because of concerns about using the bathrobe, they had to drive with him as much as they could. The Yankees left four tracks in a top season, scoring 13 consecutive starts from three wins or less. He left two in home games, the first time he allowed many homers into one game this season. He walked two and scored a draw on two levels.
Montgomery scored seven swings and failed, four in his substitution and none in his fastball.
“I thought he made some good pitches tonight. We were a little unlucky, but I tried to help them out there [third baseman Josh Donaldson] “and we did it,” said Trevino. “Well it was good.”
An All-Star nod would be Trevino’s first. In the first report on the All-Star vote, Trevino is second, but far behind Kirk.
“I mean, if it happens, it will happen,” Trevino said of being an All-Star. “I want to win a championship and that is quite personalized. An All-Star game that would be great, but I want to win a championship. ”
