Yanks Survive J-Rod Grand Slam; Torres 11th Inning Walk-off

 Carlos Rodón pitched the Yankees to a 5-1 lead through six innings of 2-hit, 7 strikeout ball, but no sooner had he turned it over to the pen than Julio Rodríguez blasted a grand slam home run in the 7th to give the Mariners a 6-5 lead. The Yankees had to rally from behind in the bottom of the 9th, 10th and 11th innings before Gleyber Torres' 2-run walk off homer gave them the 9-8 win.

The average score of our first six Statis-Pro games of the season was 6-3, but the Twins 14-12 win against the Astros and this 9-8 Yankees win over the Mariners makes the average score for the moment a whopping 8-6.

We took the top nine AL teams and divided them into three pods of East, South and West. The win puts the Yankees in 1st in the Eastern Pod at 2-1. Each team has two 2-game series outside their pod to go through their 4-man rotation once, then each will go through their rotation one more time in a round robin against the other two teams in the pod. Here are the mini-standings now followed by the box score from the Yankees 11 inning win.

East Pod

NY Yankees 2-1  - at Seattle (Cortes at Gilbert)

Baltimore 0-1 – host Cleveland (Kremer hosts Williams), then 2 vs Texas

Toronto 0-2 – at Seattle (Berrios at Miller), at Tampa (Kukuchi at Littell)


West Pod

Cleveland 1-0 – at Baltimore (Williams at Kremer), 2 vs Tampa (Bibee, Allen)

Minnesota 1-1 – at Houston (Paddock at Brown), at Texas (Ober at Gray)

Seattle 1-1 – host Toronto (Miller host Barrios), host NY Yankees (Gilbert host Cortes)


South Pod

Texas 1-0 – host Minnesota (Gray host Ober), 2 vs. Baltimore

Tampa 1-0 – host Toronto (Littell host Kikuchi), 2 vs Cleveland

Houston 1-2 – host Minnesota (Brown host Paddock)


After games listed, each team will play the other two teams in their pod twice each.
