Yankees outfield blunder extends inning to set up two-run homer
Be sure to tighten your glove.
That fundamental may have helped New York Yankee Harrison Bader in the second inning of Game 3 of the ALCS against the Houston Astros.
With two outs and New York ace Gerrit Cole nearly through the inning, Christian Vasquez sent a fly ball to right-center field which was ultimately dropped by Bader. Aaron Judge and Bader were chasing the initial ball and trying to avoid a collision. The judge walked past Bader just as he was about to catch him, causing the error.
Chas McCormick ripped a two-run homer to right field the very next at bat and gave Houston a 2-0 early lead.
Apart from that incident, Bader stood out in the playoffs. The Bronxville native hit four home runs in October.
