NEW YORK – Jameson Dylan took a perfect game in the eighth inning and flirted with history, then Anthony Risso’s pinch-hit, recovered by a two-run single as the Yankees rallied. 2-1 win The Angels Over completed a three-game series sweep at Yankee Stadium on Thursday evening.
Dylan rested for the first 21 batters he faced, Jared Walsh reached the middle of a ground ball, and shortstop Isia Kiner-Falefa tried to back off with a slide that found it kicking for double. After two outs, Kurt Suzuki followed with an RBI single and went to the left field, which was driven into the first run of the game.
From the eighth to the first half, the bombers’ offense was thwarted by the Reed Deadmers and three hollow relievers, a surprising event after the Yankees belted three homers beyond Shoaib Ohtani. Won 6-1 During the day-night first game on Thursday, the solo-admission doubleheader.
New York, who face Oliver Ortega in the eighth game, were knocked out by Miguel Andujar in the doubles and one in two walks. Archie Bradley stepped in and attacked Joey Gallo, but Risso punched a single from the bench into the center field to give the Yangs the first lead of the game.
Competing to toss the Yankees’ first perfect game after David Cone in 1999, Dylan was incredible and frugal, needing 83 pitches to go in seven innings. Kiner-Falefa kept his effort alive in seventh when Shortstop played a glossy backhand referee and threw Ohtani all over his body to rest in a bang-bang play.
Dylan’s strong effort continued a dominant performance for the Yankees openers, who tossed seven of the highest seven consecutive games of the season with six or more innings, depending on a record last passed by the club from May 5-12, 2017. Seven scoreless frames at the start of Thursday.
