Before the game, Jasson Dominguez expressed his excitement and happiness to be back on the field but refrained from providing a timeline for his return to the Yankees.

  1. the HR was hit right-handed 👍. Played a few more innings of CF, moving Spencer Jones to RF, first pro innings defensively not in CF. Spencer Jones, who was in a 14-100 slide since April 30, with no HRs, had 3 hits, including a HR of his own.
