The game is among 3 that was held off throughout the very first week of April since of the owners’ lockout. The other 2 video games will be comprised as part of a doubleheader on July 21.

Yankees right-hander Luis Severino was having difficulty hearing his PitchCom receiver throughout the video game and, in the 3rd inning, Astros outfielder Kyle Tucker saw that as a chance. Tucker attempted to take house while Severino changed the receiver in his cap, however Severino recuperated in time to toss the ball house, permitting catcher Jose Trevino to use the tag.

Here’s the video:

I didn’t exercise, however as far as I’m worried, that’s a clever play. Time was not called and the pitcher remained in a susceptible position, not unlike a lefty in the set position with his back relied on 3rd base. It wasn’t an injury scenario and it’s not Tucker’s issue Severino’s PitchCom receiver was breaking down. His task is to win video games for the Astros, not be polite to the Yankees.

“I think he showed he had the situation under control,” Yankees supervisor Aaron Boone stated (video) when asked whether Severino ought to have requested time out prior to fidgeting with the PitchCom receiver. “Yeah, you can definitely call time out and get some things set up, but I think Sevy was in command of the situation.”

Tucker, 25, took a .256/.354/.492 batting line and 15 crowning achievement into Thursday’s video game. He’s likewise 14 for 15 in taken base efforts. Add in above-average defense, and Tucker is connected for 2nd amongst American League position gamers with 3.8 WAR. He’s connected with Aaron Judge and tracks just Mike Trout (4.2).

Following Thursday’s win the Astros are 48-27 with an 11.5-game lead in the AL West. The Yankees are 56-21 and have baseball’s finest record by 7 video games over Houston.
