The Great MARIANO RIVERA pitches again in the 73rd Annual Old-Timers Day. In addition to hitting an inside the park home run and making a catch in center field, he closed out the fourth-inning exhibition by retiring Luis Soho via a ground out.
Take a look at these four selected images from today’s Houston Astro’s vs New York Yankees game from Yankee Stadium, won by the Astros 9-4.
The Yankees held their 73rd Annual Old-Timers Day celebration and the “great” Mariano Rivera stole the show, hitting an inside the park home run, catching a fly ball in center field, and closing out the fourth inning exhibition by retiring Luis Sojo. There is also a nice shot of Mariano pitching again at Yankee Stadium.
The pitching star of the real game was Justin Verlander(10-3), who became the third 10-game winner in the AL, allowing 3 runs and 4 hits over 7 Innings, striking out 9 and walking only 2. I captured a very nice image of Verlander throwing a strike to DJ LeMahieu.
Two of the hitting stars for the Astros were first baseman Tyler White, who hit his first grand slam home run in the fourth inning, and designated hitter
Yordan Alvarez, who hit a two-run home run in the fifth inning, tying a big league record with his 7th home run in 12 games to begin his career. I got two very good shots of White and Alvarez.
Despite their loss today, the Yankees look like a potential World Series Champion again
