On a hot Saturday in the Bronx, Domingo German and DJ LeMahieu helped the New York Yankees topple the Boston Red Sox by a final of 9-2.

This is a truly joyous occasion.

The New York Yankees just absolutely walloped Chris Sale and the Boston Red Sox. Completely annihilated them. Displayed complete domination offensively and defensively and great fun was had by all.

DJ LeMahieu, who I have dubbed as the consensus greatest hitter of all time, kicked off the scoring with a leadoff homer.

This opposite-field jack marks his career-high for home runs in a season at 16.

Of course, the scoring didn’t stop there. The Yankees blew the doors off in the fourth inning. Starting with an RBI single by Breyvic Valera, the Yankees scored seven runs in the inning. Brett Gardner and Edwin Encarnacion chipped in with RBI singles.

However, the big blow came courtesy of none other than DJ “consensus greatest hitter of all time” LeMahieu.

On the other side of the field, Domingo German was nothing short of dominant. He looked locked in from the very first pitch of the game. The Yankees ace tied the league lead in Wins with a stat line of 7.0 innings, two earned runs, and seven strikeouts.

Also of note, German tossed the third straight quality start for the Yankees rotation. It seems that the starters have fully bounced back after their atrocious performances last time through the rotation.

Everything went the Yankees way today. The pitching was fantastic and the offense was incredible. They’ve guaranteed, at worst, a split with the Red Sox and will look to carry this momentum into game two.

Savage of the Game - DJ LeMahieu

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this already, but I have officially dubbed DJ LeMahieu the “consensus greatest hitter of all time.” He took Chris Sale deep twice today and set the tone for a dominant offensive performance.

Lifetime ballplayer and Yankee fan. Strongly believe that the eye-test and advanced stats can be used together instead of against each other.
