There will be a crossroads in the Yankees’ future when Domingo Germán’s innings total demands attention, at which point the club’s braintrust will huddle behind closed doors to determine how best to deploy his electric right arm. Fortunately, they aren’t there yet.
German turned in one of his most efficient efforts of the year, firing seven strong frames to become the Majors’ first 16-game winner, and the Yankees extended their season-long run of dominance over the Orioles, breezing to an 8-3 victory on Tuesday evening at Yankee Stadium.
“To me, I just went out there with a positive mind and a more detailed plan this time around, looking to get ahead in the count early against those guys,” German said through a translator. “I think that was the key tonight.”
