Last spring, when Domingo Germán received word that new Yankees pitcher Carlos Rodón preferred jersey number30, the right-hander scanned the list of available replacement options and decided that the most sewn on his back It will look weird.

the Germans decided to I walked around where I would go and chose No. 0. Although some at the time wondered if it was a reference to something specific, Germán explained that it was the last vowel of his name, which he saw as a new beginning. He did not seek any compensation from Rodon, saying only that he hoped it would help the left-hander feel comfortable with his new team.

Now, number 0 belongs to age , for a different reason — Germany allowed more hits (and runs) against the Athletics on Tuesday in Oakland, completing the 15 perfect match.

“This is very disturbing Excited; I’m so happy I’m speechless,” Gehrman said through a translator. “I really have nothing to say.”

Germain’s perfect pitcher is Felix Hernandez from the Mariners 2019 the first perfect pitcher in the majors since, Germain described the pitcher as “my ‘idol growing up'” in the Dominican Republic. Germain joins Don Larson (94 World Series), David Wells (

) and David Cohen (2012) had a perfect game as four Yankees.

“When you think about the history of baseball and how many pitchers have made it, it’s exciting to be part of that history now,” Gelman said.

Watching the ninth inning on television in his Manhattan apartment, Cohen said he Had the same adrenaline rush as he did that afternoon’ Montreal Expo will be held on Yogi Berra Day at the At Yankee Stadium (Yogi Berra Day).

“You can’t take your foot off the gas pedal, so to speak,” Cohen said on YES Network. and remain in attack mode. He’ll be very tired when he gets home tonight. It doesn’t get any better than this. You’re just desperate to keep your rhythm, keep making shots and be aggressive. “

Cohen noticed Enduring bond between pitcher and catcher: For him, it’s Joe Girardi. Wells has Jorge Posada to help direct the game against the Minnesota Twins, Larson with Yogi Bella teamed up to conquer the Brooklyn Dodgers on the grandest stage, Game 5 1956 World series.

Whether they realize it or not, Gelman and Kyle Dongang are now indelibly linked: Cohen predicts they will sign together for the rest of their lives.

“To me, this is a real gift to the organization,” Cohen said. Both players were cultivated by the team, and they both paid their due price. It’s been a long time for these two kids. It was amazing to see them celebrating together after the game, with the team posing for pictures behind them. The sheer joy on Domingo’s face was palpable. You can feel it through the TV screen. ”


Germain said he started thinking about the perfect game after the fifth inning, noticing his low pitch count and zero in the Oakland hit column. For Germain, it was thrilling A heart-wrenching week where he revealed his uncle passed away two days ago and spent most of Monday afternoon crying in the visiting clubhouse at the gym.

This marked an incredible reversal of fortunes for the German team, the Red Sox and Mariners had worked hard for him Struggle 17 the total number of runs in his first two starts. Talent is still available, however. Boone noted that they’ve seen Germans flirt with historic outings before, noting that in July 2019 A no-hitter bid at Fenway Park, broken in the 8th inning.

“It’s been so much fun watching him do it and go to work,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “When he rolls like that, watch His craft is so much fun. ”

Germany Man relies heavily on a vicious curveball and needs only 99 pitches to lead Oakland in nine strikeouts Team lineup. Germany throws 30 curve, 55 Fastball, A changeup and a drop. The final out was a curveball off No. 9 hitter Esteli Ruy Esteury Ruiz cut to third baseman Josh Donaldson, who shot first baseman Anthony Rizzo infield.

“[The curveball] was very effective tonight, especially for the first ball The batting and the two-battery batting,” Gelman said. “Everything went really well tonight. Everything works perfectly – perfect. ”

is now away from his perfect Nearly a quarter of a century after the race, Cohen said Germaine’s life will never be the same.

“In the short term, you want it to have the same effect as David Wells,” Cohen said. The moment he plays the perfect game, it seems to validate him and his place on the roster, his place in the rotation. Since then, he’s been the best pitcher in the American League 1998. You hope that the confidence Domingo has gained in this fight will keep him going and make him really believe in himself. ”
