Isiah Kiner-Falefa wears a lot of hats for the Yankees. Tonight, he’s worn that of a heads-up baserunner.
Kiner-Falefa started it all when he reached on a fielder’s choice and Jeff McNeil’s throw missed Mark Vientos’ glove. This allowed Josh Donaldson to score the go-ahead run. The super utility man then stole second, and advanced to third on Francisco Alvarez’s error.
Then, the unthinkable. Isiah Kiner-Falefa stole home and became the first Yankee to do so since Didi Gregorius in 2016.
