Gleyber steals show in Yanks’ 7th straight win


Instinct spurred Gleyber Torres toward the middle of the diamond as he pursued a potential double-play ball in the eighth inning on Friday, executing a backhand snag. A split-second determination was made that the only possible play was to use the glove to flip the ball to Didi Gregorius.

Torres executed flawlessly, and that dazzling twin killing came at a crucial moment, helping to preserve the Yankees’ seventh straight victory. Torres and Gary S├ínchez had earlier homered for their third consecutive game, powering a 4-1 win over the Astros at Yankee Stadium.
