Judge continues power surge as Yanks beat Rays

Judge continues power surge as Yanks beat Rays

That in turn will bump back Masahiro Tanaka and CC Sabathia's next start by a day each, which Girardi said he wanted to do after both pitchers had to work hard in their initial outings of the season.

So, on Wednesday, Montgomery will be the second Yankee to make his major-league debut in as many games; catcher Kyle Higashioka did so in the ninth inning of Monday's win, and when he found out following the game that the lefty he caught at both Double-A and Triple-A past year was coming to join him in the Bronx, Higgy was ecstatic.

Others also helped the Yankees improve to 4-4.

But for Montgomery, it was a walk, not a home run that spoiled Montgomery's debut.

Cedeno faced two batters and did not record an out as he committed a throwing error and permitted a single to Ellsbury as the Yankees took a 4-3 lead. He was done in by 31 pitches in the first inning, when he allowed four straight to reach with two outs.

New York Yankees trainers and managers tend to Brett Gardner after Gardner collided with Tampa Bay Rays first baseman Rickie Weeks who was reaching for an errant throw during the sixth inning of a baseball game, Wednesday, Ap.

In an attempt to create comfort, the Yankees gave 26-year-old Kyle Higashioka his first big league start after 10 minor league seasons. He allowed three runs - two earned - and five hits in 4 2/3 innings with seven strikeouts and two walks. In his first start, which came against Tampa Bay, the 6-foot-6-inch Montgomery pitched four innings, striking out eight while allowing just three hits and two runs in what would end up as a 5-5 tie. He handled the Yankees smoothly until the fifth, when he walked Aaron Hicks with the bases loaded, and Diaz threw a run-scoring wild pitch. "And I don't care how you get to the next base, but your job is to score 100 runs".

A two-run homer by Judge off Ramirez extended the lead to 8-3.

Montgomery wasn't originally part of the Yankees' spring competition for the final two spots in the rotation, but as the skipper noted, he pitched his way into it during the Grapefruit League slate.

Yankees: 1B Greg Bird missed his fourth straight game.

The Rays and Yankees conclude the series Thursday night, with Matt Andriese facing Luis Severino. At the time, NY was trailing 2-0.
