They've allowed three runs or fewer in all seven games, and have pitched at least six innings in six of the seven starts.
"There were a lot of firsts, " Warren said. White Sox hitters are batting.308 in the first two innings of games this season, but just.191 from the third inning on.
ATLANTA - Dansby Swanson looped a bases-loaded, two-out single to left in the ninth inning to drive in the winning run for Atlanta, which swept the four-game series and has won five straight overall.
That was it for the 6-foot-6 Montgomery, who jogged off the field to cheers.
The former SC pitcher made his debut with the Yankees last week. Warren gave up an RBI double to Kevan Smith before Aroldis Chapman earned his fourth save when Tyler Saladino grounded into a game-ending double play - the fourth turned by the Yankees.
Behind blasts from Ryan Braun (who went 3-for-4), Jett Bandy and Eric Thames, the Brewers increased their total to 25 home runs in 14 games and pulled ahead of the New York Mets into the National League lead in the category. Starlin Castro has been rolling as of late, picking up multiple hits in three of his last five games, and Chase Headley has been just as hot, piling up nine hits and scoring six runs in his last six games. Holliday had been hitless in his previous dozen at-bats and missed the previous two games with lower-back stiffness. The Pirates lost for the first time in four games.
Derek Holland allowed no runs over 6.0 innings at Cleveland last Wednesday, the first time he prevented an opponent from scoring in any start since April 30, 2016.
In fact, a former major league GM I was talking to on Monday said he found it remarkable that they'd won seven in a row. "I have to adjust to that".
It's not Yankee Stadium but, as Girardi said, "pitching in the College World Series is a pretty big deal, " especially at age 17. The entire lineup has been producing, and perhaps the most encouraging sign for the Yankees on Sunday was Greg Bird busting out of his slump.
Holland and manager Rick Renteria both referred to the left-hander's gameplan to attack right-handed hitters inside. "We got as many righties in there as we could".
But there's been plenty for Girardi to like about his offense, also. Bird struck out as a pinch-hitter for Chris Carter on Monday. McEwing took on the task because Renteria was hobbled by knee inflammation. The right-hander made 13 major league relief appearances past year.
The White Sox will look to rebound Tuesday when they send Miguel Gonzalez (1-0, 422 ERA) to the hill against Luis Severino (1-0, 4.50 ERA). Montgomery's seven strikeouts were the most by a Yankee in an Major League Baseball debut since Luis Severino in 2015 (also seven).
