Montas debuts, Yankees move into tie for 1st

 The Yankees new 1-2 pitching rotation punch of Gerrit Cole (pb 2-9) and former Athletics ace Frankie Montas (pb 2-8) helped the Yankees beat the Angels 2-0 and 9-5 in 11 innings.

The game was the first using the updated Statis-Pro Cards.

However, the second game it took the batting duo of Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge, who hit back to back homers to force extra innings. Newly acquired Andrew Benintendi then doubled in the winning run in the top of the 11th when Mike Trout was injured diving for the drive on a z play.

The Yankees moved into a 1st place tie with the Twins, who now face the Twins. The Angels drop below .500.
