It begs the question, why they can’t win outright? Honestly, it’s anyone’s guess. However, it does add a bit of drama and excitement to the game when one inning makes the difference to whether the team wins or loses.

    Velasquez goes 5 innings before Girardi took him out. Some fans call Vince triple V signifying that he only has 5 innings in him before he messes up and loses his control.

    Not only that, but Jankowski delivered a text book perfect bunt to get on base and stressed out Aroldis Chapman who errored and overthrew. As a result, Jankowski was safe at first. Then, Torreyes sliding home causing stress on Gio Urshela who overthrew the ball just a little but enough for Torreyes to slide in safe instead of an out. It was so close.
