The New York Yankees pitchers are having a blast in their series against the Tampa Bay Rays. Friday night, it was Jameson Taillon's turn to almost complete a game as the Bronx Bombers shut out their opponents 2-0 at Tropicana Field.
Taillon emulated teammate Nestor Cortes, who had been on the mound for eight innings the previous day, in a 7-2 victory. The 30-year-old Gunner was even more dominant allowing just two hits and striking out five batters. on sockets.
Taillon's perfect game (5-1) came to an end in the fifth inning when he allowed a single to Randy Arozarena. On the next assault, it was Manuel Margot who hit a double to left field, without consequence however.
Reliever Clay Holmes closed the books in the ninth round at bat with his sixth save of the season. He passed two men in the mitten.
Gleyber Torres and Matt Carpenter scored the Yankees' only two runs on solo home runs on the fourth assault.
The series between New York and Tampa Bay will continue on Saturday before concluding the following day.
