Yankees RHP Domingo German was looking for some redemption in his last two starts for the Bombers. And he did just that in Toronto on Sunday afternoon.
German went six strong innings allowing just one run in what was a refreshing start to see from the Yankees' young arm.
It was smooth sailing for German to start the game as he didn't see any trouble through the first three innings. However, the fourth inning was a different story.
After Justin Smoak singled, German got two outs and looked to strand yet another runner for the Jays. But he issued back-to-back walks to Russell Martin and Randal Grichuk to load the bases. But German was locked in and got out of the jam by striking out Lourdes Gurriel Jr.
German settled down in the fifth, but Kendrys Morales gave him his only blunder of the afternoon when he sent a fastball over the right field fence to tie the game at one.
Despite leaving the game with a no-decision, the Yankees must be happy with German's start. His ERA is still high even after falling to 5.06 following this outing, but he has shown he can go deep into games like today.
Hopefully for the Yanks German continues this trend moving forward.
