Michael King also threw a pristine inning of the same variation last month against the Red Sox.Michael King Throws First Immaculate Inning in History of Yankees-Red Sox RivalryHe was just terrific, Yankees manager Aaron Boone said following the 4-2 victory.Terrific command. Just really from jump street throwing the ball how and where he wanted to, mixing the curveball in while really locating the fastball how he needed to. Really efficientTo start the seventh, Green got Michael Conforto looking with a pretty breaking ball and called strike three. He then retired Jeff McNeil and Jonathan Villar swinging on a curveball and a fastball, respectfully.Green admitted that he didnt realize he had thrown an immaculate inning until fellow reliever Lucas Luetge told him after the game. It not uncommon for Green to showcase his dominant stuff, though. With six strikeouts in three frames on Sunday, Green has now struck out at least six batters in a relief appearance four times in his big-league career.I think being able to land the breaking ball behind in the count got me back into some counts, Green explained . And I was able to get some quick outs to keep the pitch count down.The right-hander best performance out of the bullpen this season couldnt have come at a better time.

But Green kept the bats silent the rest of the way.The much-needed win gave the Yankees some momentum heading into an off day on Monday before opening a six-game trip against the Mariners and Astros leading up to the All-Star break.Asked if a victory like this can relax a team that been scuffling, Green agreed. It certainly makes the cross-country flight to Seattle late Sunday night and into Monday morning more enjoyable.When we go into an off day, you dont want a sour taste in your mouth, Green explained.Especially playing a doubleheader, youre actually trying to win two. Came up short the first game, so it makes sleeping a little easier tonight, obviously.
