Recap: The start from rookie, Dylan Covey, did not go particularly well as the White Sox lose to the Yankees 9-1
Dylan Covey with his second start for the White Sox got beat big as the Yankees hit a whole bunch of home runs to win the game 9-1
The Yankees really controlled this game against the White Sox early. Chicago had a tough time going 1-10 with runnings in scoring position and only got six hits all day and got struck out 7 times. The Yankees just were hot all night hitting a bunch of home runs off the rookie starter. The biggest coming off a nice stroke from Aaron Judge for a 448 ft home run, the third longest ever at Yankee Stadium in the Statcast era.
“There was a lot of energy in this stadium the whole homestand. I think we just kind of fed off that, and our pitching staff came out and did what they did. I think collectively as a team, we just did our job.”
Dylan Covey was the starting pitcher for the White Sox and did not have a good outing. The rookie gave up 10 hits in his 5 innings of work. He let up three home runs, including the moon shot by Aaron Judge above. Dylan Covey let up a total of eight earned runs and only one strikeout in the most welcome to the MLB game ever for a rookie. These starts happen to rookies, now the big tell will be if he gets another start how does he respond. This is only his second start in the bigs. Dylan Covey was picked up from the A’s in the rule 5 draft December 8th of last year.
Other than the bad start from Cover the rest of the bullpen did just fine getting to the end of the game letting up only one more hit during the game. This might be the Yankees going into cruise control but the White Sox still made their pitches. That one hit that they got was the last home run of the evening coming from Aaron Hicks.
This was a little bit of a throwaway game for the White Sox who should put this one in the rearview mirror and move on. They met a hot Yankees team right now who has won 9 of their last 10 games.
