New York Yankees: The Best Wins Of The First Half

2. 6/6/16- Bombers Use Three Blasts To Best Angels 5-2

The Yankees seemed like they were about to go down without a fight.

Matt Shoemaker, who had maintained a 1.59 ERA over his previous three starts, held New York scoreless through the first six innings but that all changed after he surrendered back-to-back solo homers to Brian McCann and Starlin Castro with two outs in the seventh to tie the game at two.

Then, in the eighth, Carlos Beltran cranked a two-out, three-run homer off Jose Alvarez in the bottom of the eighth, fueling the Yankees to a 5-2 victory in comeback fashion.

That’s just the power of this offense, to be honest. Sure, the crowd was quiet and Shoemaker was pitching one heck of a game, but the Yankees were able to tie the game with two swings to turn the crowd into a restless one in a span of five minutes.

Then, of course, Chapman would pump up the gas to cap off what was an exhilarating victory for the New York Yankees.
