New York Yankees 2B Gleyber Torres Sparks Key Rally Against Chicago White Sox With Pinch Hit Walk

CHICAGO — Gleyber Torres had barely dirtied his spikes and he was already down 0-2.

Coming off the bench in the eighth inning of a tie ballgame, Torres was tasked with passing the baton with two outs and leadoff man DJ LeMahieu looming on deck.

After a called strike and foul ball with the first two offerings from White Sox reliever Joe Kelly, both breaking balls, Torres buckled down and put together what his manager later called the at-bat of the night.

Torres took a ball in the dirt before spoiling a 1-2 sinker in on his hands. Kelly went on to throw three more knuckle curves, each barely missing the bottom of the strike zone, and Torres spit on all three of them, working a walk.
