Jordan Montgomery gem, wacky Todd Frazier triple play lead Yankees over Reds

Votto and Cozart

Frazier was not credited with an RBI on the play that gave NY a 1-0 lead and prevented a big inning.

What happened in the second inning is still hard for anyone who was at Yankee Stadium to comprehend.

The New York Yankees have gone 6-5 since the All-Star Break, and find themselves two games behind the Boston Red Sox in the American League East. "I threw my curveball well when I needed it to put somebody away, and I threw a couple good sliders".

"I think I might've set a record for first-ever at-bat as a Yankee getting a triple play", Frazier joked.

Gregorius' second-inning base-running error Tuesday night resulted in the team's first triple play in almost six years, but the shortstop made up for his mistake with an insurance home run in the eighth inning in the Yankees' 4-2 win over the Reds.

Montgomery was removed with two outs in the sixth for right-hander Tommy Kahnle. "This is a homecoming you can only dream of; I felt like a little kid going to bed last night, and when I woke up this morning...it's pretty exciting".

Suarez continued the rundown, and Peraza was credited with the third out when Gregorius was ruled out for running out of the base line.

That was plenty for Montgomery, who struggled in his previous outing as he allowed six runs on seven hits in six innings against the Twins.

"He's just not missing his pitches", manager Joe Girardi said.

Frazier had a memorable night. Matt Holliday went to right-center field, Didi Gregorius went to right field, and Chase Headley went the other way to left field.

Gregorious would be called out for leaving the base path, but through all that madness, the Yankees scored a run. Aaron Judge singled and scored on Gregorius' sacrifice fly to right in the fourth, and Austin Romine lined an RBI double to right in the fifth.

NY scored its next three runs in more conventional ways. If they want to catch up and make a run in the second half of the season, however, they may want to avoid doing what they did on Tuesday night. John Lackey (7-9) became the first major leaguer to hit four batters in two years, but managed to get into the sixth inning for his second straight victory.

He wasn't bothered by his early departure.
