The highlight of the day at the plate for the Yankees was a Joe Polichetti (2 hits, 3 RBI, run) 365 foot (stat-cast) solo home run over the center field fence. Vara (5-0) navigated through a complete game victory on the mound, allowing three earned runs while walking four and striking out eight Giants hitters.
