The Yankees beat the Giants 11-5 on Sunday, finishing off a sweep at Oracle Park. >> Box score
Six takeaways from Sunday's game
1) Domingo German's final line -- 6 IP, 5H, 4R, 1 BB and 4 K -- doesn't really tell how good he was for the most of this game. German cruised through his first five innings, allowing no runs on just one hit. German might have tired some in the sixth, as he was tagged for four runs on four hits. German (5-1) still got the win behind the Yankees' offense and continues to uphold his part in the team's rotation.
2) The Yankees lost two more players to injuries, as DJ LeMahieu left the game with a leg injury and Gio Urshela was hit on the top of the left hand with a pitch. LeMahieu has been among the most consistent players for the Yanks this season, while Urshela has been a revelation for the club filling in at third base. If either player misses extended time, the Yankees might have to once again find replacements from outside of the organization as they recently did when trading for outfielder Cameron Maybin.
3) Gary Sanchez homered for the second straight game and looks to be finding a groove after missing 11 games earlier this month. Sanchez now has seven home runs on the season in just 15 games, and that production appears to be an indication that his down offensive performance in 2018 was just a blip on the radar.
4) Luke Voit lifted his average to .283 with three more hits. Voit leads the Yankees with 25 RBIs, which is second most in the American League. Voit has to be one of the better trades the Yankees have pulled off in recent seasons.
5) Gleyber Torres went 2-for-4 with his fifth home run of the season and his first since April 16. Torres is in the midst of a six-game hitting streak, which has boosted his batting average to .264. As the Yankees endure the rash of injuries, Torres is an important figure for the club both on offense and as the shortstop.
6) Thairo Estrada is one of the young Yankees benefitting from unexpected playing time at the major league level, and he's making the most of his time. After replacing LeMahieu, Estrada notched two base hits and a stolen base. Estrada has six hits in 14 at-bats (.429) this season.
