Yankees' pitcher Chapman gets championship ring from Cubs


The latest came Friday afternoon in a 3-2 comeback victory over the Cubs on a savagely windy and cold afternoon at Wrigley Field.

But with Cubs closer Wade Davis having pitched three straight days, Rondon - charged with closing out the Yanks - gave up a one-hit single to Headley, then walked pinch-hitter Jacoby Ellsbury with two out.

Hendricks struggled with his command in his first three starts of the season, but he has been much sharper in his last two outings.

"It's a never-say-die [attitude]", Girardi said. The Yankees won the series opener against the Cubs, after Brett Gardner gave the Yanks the lead in the top of the 9th. Anthony Rizzo and Ben Zobrist each chipped in a base hit, while the rest of the Cubs went 0 for 18 in the loss. They are 5-5 in their past 10 games while the Yankees come in as one of the best teams in baseball. "It's not like we weren't putting together good at-bats".

Gary Sanchez expected to rejoin the Yankees lineup this weekend against the Cubs. He's now hitting.247/.356/.461 on the season with all five of his long balls coming in the last six games. May. "I just want to have my input into that".

Aroldis Chapman now has a championship ring. "If you don't throw the right pitch in the right spot ... it was the right pitch but it wasn't in the right spot".

Chapman froze Jason Heyward with a breaking ball for a called third strike, retired Willson Contreras on a grounder to Headley, then struck out Javier Baez on a 100 miles per hour fastball for his seventh save in as many chances. Sanchez was taken out of the game after still feeling pain following a practice swing.

"It was very exciting", Chapman said through an interpreter. "My job is to focus and make sure that runner on second doesn't score".

Gardner had seen six consecutive fastballs from Rendon before he got a hanger and deposited it 409 feet away. In five starts, Hendricks has a 4.18 earned run average. They outscored the Cubs 13-5 in the games at Yankee Stadium to complete another four-game romp of the National League champions. It was a 45-degree day, and though skies were sunny, it felt like 37. They rode solo homers from Kris Bryant and Kyle Schwarber - line drives to right field that avoided the teeth of the wind - and survived adventures in the field to carry a 2-0 lead into the ninth.

Pineda allowed two runs and three hits in six innings, lowering his ERA to 3.12.

Despite being in Chicago for just more than three months last season, Chapman carries a great appreciation for the historic accomplishment, knowing the impact on the franchise and the city. "I'll probably play deep on him".

"I said all along in spring training I liked this group", he said. If the Cubs had rallied off Chapman in the ninth, Baez may have turned one of his teammates into a block of ice, like Mr. Freeze did in the old "Batman" TV show. "I believe that team had a lot of talent. I really liked it [this team] when we left spring training".
