The Colombian hit a grand slam in New York’s ninth victory over Boston’s 5-2.
Bases full, Giovanny Urshela He bats, the Colombian opens the bar, he is a little more aggressive at the plate, he turns a little to have more balance and power, and when the ball comes from the outside corner, boom, hit the furthest from right field, home run for Cartagena, his first grand slam.
That homer helped the Yankees beat the Red Sox 5-2 on a new MLB matchday, their fifth straight success. In addition, Aaron Judge appeared again to remove her from the park and add a homerun for the fourth consecutive game.
But the Yankees were not only power at bat, but also intelligence from the mound with rookie Nick Nelson, who contributed in three innings without hitting and lent a hand in the Big Apple’s best start to the season since 2003.
Thus, the duel will be repeated this Sunday before the Yankees face, again at home, with the Phillies.
