>> the question is how. it's probably his last at bat barring something crazy. it ended the inning. it was a strange way. i think girardi sensing that and trying to figure out how to get him on the field here. >> yeah. and take him out. >> send him out one lot of time. -- one last time. we are all about speculating at yankees up 6-ley. trying to keep pace in this wild card race. adam warren, he goes to the cubs in the trade for castro. he had been a really good versatile yankee.
it just didn't work. he comes back in the aroldis chapman trade and since he has come back has been really good. this hit to left and one away. >> he has really good stuff. i like his action and the way he throws. and to the degree where you are familiar with the pitching coach and you try to impress too much when you go somewhere else. maybe he fell into a little bit of that and now is again still in the thick of things. it was difficult to leave a team you know is going to the play-offs. >> right. >> and come to a team you hope maybe can get to the play-offs. >> he turned into the eighth inning man for the yanks. remember they had chapman and miller and betances. betances is closing so at least the early indication joe girardi used him as the eighth inning guy.
matt duffy is the hitter. duffy skies one to center. and it's two away. >> he is just sneaky quick enough. radar readings won't show high velocity of 97-98. just didn't pick up the ball and has enough break on his slider/curve ball and filling a role everybody knew -- i thought curse for joe girardi. this is what i mean. >> okay. >> at no point will your starter go seven innings in a close game. you will be so second guessed or questioned about why didn't you bring in the big three? my argument about changing your franchise and trading those three guys would be better for the future and you could still win along the way. that's what the yankees came to
what we can build on. >> i think it's a great point. longoria fouls it off. he has druive -- driven in two tonight. i really feel like because of the specialization and how it has become with the roles in the bullpen. if a starter is having a great game the manager takes him out to avoid getting second guessed. >> exactly. that's the question situation a new manager deals with an old manager didn't deal with. that curse i was talking about is if you think about having three great arms like they did, two out of three every night is better than three out of three. then you have a fresh guy every third or second day. that isn't what was happening. the pressure to win, stay in the
winning formula. it has its price to pay and they did the best they could do short of getting schwarber from the cubs they maximized opportunity to get 13 players? something like that. >> they did really well. longoria watches outside, ball 4. warren puts longoria on with the 2-out walk. if you look what the yankees did at the deadline, so from the cubs they got the number one and 7 prospect. from texas they got prospect. from cleveland they got the number 2 and 4 prospect. that's a lot of hope. >> yes. >> for a team that is trying to turn over their roster and have a little youth infusion for first time in years. >> you don't want to grow old together, we know what happens. this is a proud franchise that has won a lot of years in a row and has a nice streak going. i don't know if they will catch their previous streak of winning
last year, again, people would say they made the play-offs the one game, but did they really have the team that could have done much in the play-offs, proven they didn't last year. this year they would be scary in a one game under the old formula of those guys. i think moving forward they have just given themselves a better chance to be relevant and not be in a bigger hole. >> 0 and 2 the count to brad through the eighth protect the three-run lead. cc sabathia stands to be the winner. 0-2 pitch coming. little low.
when they traded henderson from the a's that's a long time ago. you give cash man and company credit for trying to see where they are and remain competitive and turn this around for next year and get younger. he got him. adam warren one walk and gets through the eighth. the yankees up over the ? ? ays. announcing zero for seventy-two across the entire lineup of ford cars, trucks and suvs. plus, tagged vehicles now get a thousand smart bonus. that's freedom from interest... and freedom to choose with ford. america's best selling brand. ? ? now get 0% financing for 72 months across the entire ford lineup, plus specially tagged vehicles get a thousand smart bonus.

no way, that's jacob degrom. let's get his autograph. jacob... can we get your auto... haha, yeah i get that a lot. jacob and i could be identical twins. i don't think so. well, maybe just related, haha. no way. well we both throw a heck of a fast ball! not just anyone can be a major league pitcher like jacob degrom. but anyone could save money with geico. geico, see how much you could save. create your own tour of italy is back starting at $12.99, only at olive garden. choose 3 of 9 of our favorite italian dishes to get everything you want, all on one plate. plus unlimited salad and breadsticks. hurry in and create your own tour. offer ends sunday. olive garden. >> bottom of the eighth inning. yankees over the rays here. mark teixeira will lead it off.
twice. he even stole his second base of the year. this one popped to left. >> gone. >> it's gone tonight, you never know. [laughing] tonight's telecast is sponsored by: hot, steamy night in new york city. thunderstorms early delayed the game for a while. a typical summer evening. a little sticky. at some point mccann has to make pitchers pay on the first pitch. >> maybe it's here. no. >> at some point has to change
didi has a double tonight and three trips. want to finish on mccann and the one thing about him, even though talking about he swings for the fences too much, 11 straight years only bench, berra and carter have gone that as catcher. pretty good company. if you are buying into the new age philosophy you try to b up your power and i think could have had the best of both worlds. >> in atlanta went everywhere and a cap hitter and it changed a little bit. i get it. gregorius quickly ahead of the count 3-0. 2 down in the eighth. and a four-pitch walk.
final game and his final at bat his last time up. will we see him in the ninth? had a conversation with joe girardi. will there be one more time for him to take the field and get some kind of cheers tonight? see if joe gets creative. stressful for joe girardi. >> oh, my goodness. people have you think about it, the last five years and all he has dealt with, aging dynasty and superstars and mariano rivera and derek jeter and -- i mean it was inevitable but is tough to deal with. i mean, just with jeter it took
of how he -- feeling of how he felt. that's the icon here you can't replace. >> no. that's a hard thing. and look, jeter batted second all year and didn't have a good offensive year all year last year. if you go up and down the line with differences and similarities all year long. 1 and 1 do castro. down low. we want a-rod chant. >> what made them great is they don't think of themselves differently other than grinding. looking through a different lens it's difficult will -- someone else telling you where you should be. it's hard.
like a kid on the first day of little league. >> yeah. we have talked about it all game long, a lot to the a-rod story. that's for sure. it's complicated but he is a great player. i think the game will miss him. just for the interest he has been a fascinating player to watch. >> he knows the game. he is really smart. when you think about everything he had to do in this game to be at the level he was. there is definitely some impact he will have next year for the organization for a lot of young guys and teaching them how to play the game. and the tools he once possessed. >> a lot of people poo-poo that
everyone says he is terrific with the younger guys. he takes an interest. i think he would be good at that role. you know what? you have to give girardi credit here. this is a pretty great thing to do for joe girardi. >> it is. you have the beast on the mound and betances and in a perfect world he strikes out the fi alec rodriguez to come off. >> the last time alex played 3rd base, may 5, 2015. the end of a historic career and controversial one. now he is just having fun in his final inning. here is betances now the closer with all the trades the yankees made.
movie aboutitances up. the bullpen -- movie aboutitances -- betances up. 2-1 now coming. >> it's like a rally yie cry that we have to do this a different way and everybody look at this as an opportunity. he will benefit here and the fact he will be in a more defined role and burn the bullets as as a closer you are the one guy. you know your role moving forward. i think you will see him rack up a lot of saves. >> 2-2 from betances. strike 3 called. one away. >> devastating pitch and this is
a swing and a miss from cory dickerson. >> it won't hit home now or in the press conference. only when his body is ready to do something that he is not doing. creatures of habit of the baseball game. that's all he's known. alec's family there. his daughters. his mom behind them. he was so ecstatic to have them here to watch him play for a final time. will fire it down, but not in time. the rays have a base runner here
you said it won't hit home. what is he thinking right now? >> a lot of flashing moments joe will want to watch in replay. a lot of flashing moments of all the times he had to go through both good and bat. every athlete goes through a time when they go through the unwritten it's the times in the gym when you come back from surgery, the hip surgery. the moments you don't know if you can play any more and reproving it to yourself. those are the moments he will sit back and go i did it. i did it at a level where a lot of people have not come close. he will be judged according to not only his peers but those who watch from afar. and will realize okay, they will
certain areas. what i talk about, for me, fortunately the piece of walking away knowing i gave every ounce i and regardless of what he does, that will be some of the same feels. he has known this game from a very young age and he is in an elite category most of baseball couldn't think of in great tons walk away. he will be on his couch and turn on the game and miss the camaraderie and m opportunity to touch and help another player. i think next year where he will be able to stay connected to the game if he does what the yankees have asked him to do. >> they review it. the runner is out and that's the second out of the inning. dickerson called out on the overturned call. betances one out away. i know one thing for relative certainty. i don't know that you and i will
>> no. >> after he has been released. >> doesn't seem like it. >> that has been something. some week for alex rodriguez and the yankees. i think he has had a pretty good night tonight. yanks playing well. took two of three from the red sox and tried to close out game one of the weekend set with the rays. sabathia six well. it's 1 and 1. castro has has been the offensie guy. driven in four with two outs. castro has had a night. and a-rod with an rbi double. 1-1 pitch. there is a strike to souza. >> for the yankees every off-season is an interesting one.
beoon -- an interesting one they can decide the future of their club. >> 1-2. and he got him. and this one is over. so betances comes on and gets the save. 6-3 yankees win. alex rodriguez in his final game goes out a winner and contributes with an rbi double. 12 years as a yankee, 22 years as a major leaguer. there was controversy. there was craziness. there was also greatness.
never forget. my mom is here and daughters are here. the fans, i can't say enough. it was overwhelming. >> they were on l feet chanting your name every at bat. what was it like that one last time? >> it was overwhelming. i disappointed a lot of people and it feels good. >> your emotions right now. went out with double. are you disappointed, relieved, happy, sad? >> i'm relieved and i'm happy. we end today winning three -- end it winning three in a row. the ceremony before the game was incredible. any time i get to share moments with my mother and two daughters it is incredible. >> how odd to leave this team in the middle of a pennant race. >> it's getting fun now.
