Clint Frazier hit a tiebreaking two-run double, Didi Gregorius and Brett Gardner combined for three home runs and the New York Yankees beat the Seattle Mariners, 6-4, Sunday at Safeco Field. >> Box score


Gardner went 2-for-5 with a leadoff home run in the first inning and a game-tying RBI single in the sixth inning off James Pazos (2-3). Frazier followed and drove in two runs with a double to left field that made it 6-4, as the Yankees won a series for the first time since June 9-11.

Yes, the New York Yankees have compiled one of the best backend of the bullpen combinations in all of baseball. But, in doing so, have the Yankees neglected to pay enough attention to how the club will reach the dominant combination of Dellin Betances, Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman?

We touched on the fact that the starting rotation held some of the responsibility some weeks back, mentioning the importance of each member's ability to pitch deeper into games if they wanted to be considered an ace. Even if this improves across the line, the backend of the bullpen cannot pitch daily.

This makes the relievers charged with providing middle relief innings, as well as aiding the backend of the bullpen when rest is needed, quite important. To that end, the Yankees have decided to take a pretty big chance on relatively inexperienced relievers.
