The New York Yankees’ backup strength won the doubleheader against the Twins on Wednesday. Following the criticism of the starless team selected for Game 1, manager Aaron Boone fought back citing the Yankees’ injury problems.

Here are the latest Yankees’ injury updates.

Left-hander Zack Britton pitched a scoreless sixth inning in a Triple-A game with the Scranton Wilkes-Barre RailRiders at Durham. He walked one batter and struck out another. Only six of his 15 pitches were strikes. The southpaw is up for rehab after undergoing Tommy John’s surgery. He may have a few more shots at AAA games to establish his fitness before taken off the Yankees’ injury list and going back to the regular roster.

Right-handed pitcher Luis Severino is set to move out of the Yankees’ injury list. He threw 45 pitches over four innings and gave up two runs on four hits. He struck out four batters and didn’t walk anyone. The right-hander was pitching for Double-A Somerset at Hartford. He gave up a two-run homer in the first inning, but then went three innings without giving up any more runs. Out of the 45 pitches that Severino threw, 35 were strikes. This was his second time out, and it could be his last before he gets off the 60-day Yankees’ injury list next week.

Severino played against the Yard Goats in the first game of a doubleheader.

In the second game, two Patriots pitchers worked together to throw a no-hitter for seven innings. This gave the Patriots a sweep of the doubleheader.

RHP Yoendrys Gomez, the Yankees‘ No. 12 prospect, started the game by going five innings without allowing a hit. RHP Steven Jennings, the Yankees’ Rule 5 Draft pick for 2021, then went two innings without a hit.

In the whole game, Somerset only let one runner reach second base. Gomez walked two outs in the fourth inning. Somerset won the game 5-0, and Gomez’s first win of the season came after he went five innings without giving up a hit.

Rodolfo Duran caught the no-hitter, went 3-for-4 with 3 RBIs, and hit the two-run home run that won the game for Somerset in the fourth inning. In the same inning, Somerset’s lead grew to 3-0 when Max Burt (who was 11 at the time) hit a home run.

The Patriots claim that this was only the club’s second perfect game in its entire history. The first no-hitter happened on August 8, 2021, and Severino was the one who pitched an extraordinary game back then as well.
