New York Yankees young starting pitcher Domingo German was not only dominant in his first MLB start, he turned out to pitch in historic fashion.

Folks, it doesn’t get much better than this. New York Yankees starting pitcher Domingo German put on a clinic at new Yankee Stadium on Sunday.

With his team hot and the Cleveland Indians in town, the youngster made his first career MLB start and finished with dominant, historic numbers.

German no-hit the Tribe in six innings pitched. No runs, no hits and nine strikeouts accounted as his final line prior to Aaron Boone pulling the kid with 84 total pitches on his ledger.


German, 25, was that “throw in” that brought Nathan Eovaldi and Garrett Jones to the organization. On Sunday, he broke MLB records in the category of first Major League Baseball start.

In terms of the curious case of why he was pulled so early, manager Aaron Boone did reveal in the postgame that he was under a close watch with an explicit pitch count number to not go over. That number was not revealed by Boone.

German’s start ended with another New York Yankees youngster, Gleyber Torres, smacking a walk-off three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning.
