The Yankees hit a slam. We hit a 30 ft fly ball and 2 strikeouts, one looking.

We're not even playing the same game. And haven't been for 15 years.

With two strikes he should be playing back and probably makes that play.

This could be the most lop sided of all the sweeps in regards to run differential. Poor Rocco, now he knows.

Not over yet but not looking good. At some point the Yankees are hanging more than a run, it’s what a good O does.

He quickly moved pretty far away from the line, and stayed in. With 2 outs I would've thought he should've gone back for sure to get more time, but then also a bit closer to the line (that part possibly hindsight). I'm not sure why he was at the edge of the grass with 2 outs.

I can pretty much guarantee that Sano was playing exactly where the coaching staff wanted him to. He was up on the edge of the grass because Polanco was behind 2nd base. If Sano is back at 3rd, all Gardiner has to do is touch the ball towards the left side for a free run.

Pitcher and catcher don't need to cover home with 2 out though. Tricky play. I don't understand the call to play him in with 2 outs then.

Pooping your pants with bases loaded will likely be the defining moment of this game though unless the Yankees pile it on shortly.

I don't really understand what you mean about covering home? Agree that the hitting is what is killing them. Yankees pitchers have been throwing a ton of crushable pitches all night.
