Oswaldo Cabrera sealed victory for the Yankees

The pitching was the protagonist this Saturday in Cleveland in the first of a doubleheader, but Venezuelan Oswaldo Cabrera was able to decipher the pitchers at the right time to lead the Yankees’ 3-2 victory over the Guardians.

The mules were barely able to make a run for Carlos Carrasco, also a Creole, in the second inning with a ground ball by Trent Grisham. And that was the only score in the first five innings of the game.

In the sixth, after the “cookie” came out, the mules took the opportunity to score two more with a blow from Oswaldo Cabrera, the third of the season. The connection, which traveled 352 feet through right field, ultimately made the difference.

Cabrera, who finished 1-for-3 with two RBIs, left his average at .333.

And just at the end of the sixth inning, Tyler Freeman drove in two with a grounder for a double play, poorly fielded by Gleyber Torres.

Clarke Schmidt earned his first win of the season by pitching 5.0 two-run innings, only one of them earned, walking five and striking out seven. Clay Holmes got the save and the Yankees won for the 11th time in 14 games.

Carrasco took the setback by finishing with four and two-thirds innings of just one run, but up to five walks and only two strikeouts. His record was 0-1 and his ERA was 3.55.
