Yankees’ Josh Donaldson hits slam in 10th inning vs. Rice, originally appeared on NBC Boston Sports
His Twitter handle is BringerOfRain20, Josh Donaldson certainly poured it on the Tampa Bay Rays in Wednesday’s star fashion.
After trailing 4-2 in the first half of the sixth inning,
New York Yankees Rally sends the game to the 10th inning. Enter Donaldson. The third baseman threw a four-seam fastball to right field at 97 mph to give his team an 8-7 comeback win:
This marks Donner Mori’s 11th homer of the season was .223 with 77 hits, 43 RBIs and 39 runs. He added four RBIs through this drama alone, with Aaron Judge
, Gleb Torres and Anthony Rizzo all scored.
New York’s form has slipped recently, and the Houston Astros now hold the best record in the American League. The Yankees have lost five straight since a 3-1 win over the Kansas City Royals in late July, but perhaps Donaldson’s performance has energized the team for the upcoming event.
The Yankees are next in a three-game series with the Toronto Blue Jays, another AL East rival, tied for second in the division with the Rays.
