Yankees shortstop Anthony Volpe gets a bit too close to an overexuberant Rockies fan

In the middle of Saturday’s game in Denver, New York Yankees shortstop Anthony Volpe nervously approached an overbearing fan before security tackled him.

In the eighth inning of the Yankees’ 6-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies, the incident took place.

In a fan-shσt video from Coors Field, the individual can be seen sprinting from the outfield toward second base while being pursued by one security officer. The man walked up to Volpe, threw a shirt at the Yankees rookie, and appeared to shout something before being apprehended by four security personnel. Volpe admitted that he was “pretty startled” by all that happened, but that he thought stadium security did an excellent job of escorting the man out.

According to Yankees manager Aaron Boone, “usually it’s just some drᴜnk idiot running out, having fun on a bet.” He appeared to be upset about something. I’m glad they got him and nothing serious happened. The reason the man tossed a t-shirt at the young shortstop and what he was screaming at Volpe are both unknown.

It is unknown if the individual was detained because Rockies spokesmen did not immediately answer to DailyMail.com’s request for more information. Giancarlo Stanton homered for the fourth time in four appearances and surpassed 1,000 career RBIs by bringing in four runs on Saturday night, helping the Yankees defeat the Rockies.

With two outs in the second inning and two runs scored against Connor Seabold, Stanton hit an opposite-field, three-run home run down the right-field line to give his team a 6-1 advantage.

Stanton asserted, “I’m stringing good at-bats together, so as long as I stay on schedule and maintain my rhythm, I can keep this going.” With a groundout in the first inning, Stanton, who has hit 12 home runs at Coors Field, scored the game’s opening run.

Boone observed, “He’s swinging better unquestionably.” I hesitate to state that he is present since that is on a different level than the majority of us in the room having seen him dialed in. However, I believe that for the past ten or two weeks, he has continued to move in the right way.

In his last 14 games, Stanton has 16 RBIs.

When Stanton reached 1,000 RBIs in his 14th major league season, he commented, “That’s very cool.” It is a pleasant round number.

In the eighth inning, Oswaldo Cabrera took over for Stanton in right field. In the fourth inning, Stanton made a late, ungainly slide from first to third, but Boone said Stanton was good with the move. In the seventh inning, Josh Donaldson was running to first base on a grounder when he injured his right calf. Between April 5 and June 2, Donaldson missed time due to a strained right hamstring. Donaldson will have an MRI, and a second stint in the IL is a possibility.

In six innings, Clarke Schmidt (5-6) gave up two runs, three hits, and eight strikeouts, tying a career best. Since May 14, he has made 10 starts and one relief appearance, going 4-2 with a 2.83 ERA, bringing his season ERA down from 6.30 to 4.31.

He’s been extremely excellent for a few months now, according to Boone.

Schmidt struck out four times with an 86 mph sweeper, all of which were swinging strikes and kept the Rockies off balance.

Schmidt remarked, “Your fastballs don’t move as much here, and the brҽaking balls aren’t as big.” Everything is just a little bit shorter, so I wanted to emphasize the edges a little bit more.

For the first time in his big league career, Schmidt pitched into the seventh inning. He balked in a run in the first, walked one, and left after C.J. Cron’s leadoff home run in the seventh.

Schmidt remarked, “That’s something I’ve been working toward for a while now.” “Obviously, you don’t want to go into a game and give up a home run, but it’s baby steps and it’s a step forward to go deeper in games,” the speaker said.

For his eleventh save in 13 attempts, Clay Holmes threw a one-hit ninth inning.

DJ LeMahieu recorded three hits, two of which were doubles. LeMahieu has had consecutive multihit games at Coors Field for the first time since April 23–24 and for the second time this season.

For the second time in seven games, the Yankees scored as many as six runs thanks to Gleyber Torres’ two hits. On the game’s opening pitch from Seabold, Torres hit a triple.

Boone remarked, “Good to see some guys get some results.” “We are able. They are squealing. These guys are likely to get hσt together in large numbers.
