The Yankees have sharpened their focus as they wait for their injured cavalry to charge in, and even with some teammates thousands of miles away, their impact can be felt. That’s the case for Luke Voit, who is using Miguel Andujar’s bats to inflict serious damage on big league pitching.
Wielding that commandeered lumber, Voit stroked three hits and drove in two runs to give him a team-leading 25 RBIs. Gary Sánchez and Gleyber Torres slugged balls over the fences on Sunday afternoon, leading the Yankees to an 11-5 victory over the Giants to complete a three-game sweep by the Bay.
“It’s a tribute to our team and guys getting on base,” Voit said. “I’m just driving them in in clutch situations. That’s part of it, when you hit in a spot in the middle of the order. You’ve got to drive them in when it comes.”
