Overpowering closer Craig Kimbrel struck out five in 1 1/3 innings to seal the win. The third pitch was a 93 miles per hour slider that Judge fouled off followed by a 101 miles per hour fastball that Judge also fouled off. And O'Brien seems quite right here; there's a lot at stake in a Major League Baseball game, and do you really want to have that potentially impacted by a communication mistake in a player's second language when you already have a translator who can alleviate that? The Yankees, meanwhile, are winless at 0-4 in Tanaka's last four outings, are 1-4 in their last five home games versus a team with a winning record, and are 1-4 in their last five games versus a left-handed starter.
