Torres and Bauer Impress

John Halveston | April 5th, 2019

Gleyber Torres put on one heck of a show on Thursday afternoon in Baltimore against the Orioles. The New York Yankees went 4-4 as he helped pull them out of a 3-0 hole early in the game. Torres, who forgot his own batting gloves and had to put on a pair of A-Rod’s old ones, smashed two home runs in the 8-4 victory. His sixth inning home run, a three-run shot, gave them the lead that they never let go of. It snapped a small two-game losing streak for the depleted Yanks.

Trevor Bauer also had a heck of a day, helping the Cleveland Indians dust off the Toronto Blue Jays 4-1. Bauer, a man that called his own shot in saying he would win the Cy Young this season, went seven hit-less innings for them before being taken out early, which he eventually admitted he agreed with. The Indians held on to the collective no-no but had it broken in the ninth frame. This continues a long streak that the team have not had a no-hitter, dating all the way back to 1981. Bizarrely, this is the fourth time this season that the Blue Jays have been no-hit into the later innings, quite a dubious distinction to have.
