Yankees Manager Aaron Boone appreciates Kluber’s reserved demeanor. “Obviously, he’s a little understated and quiet and methodical and workmanlike and very routine-oriented,” Boone said. Kluber got 11 outs on grounders, two on infield popups and one on a lineout to second baseman Rougned Odor in short right field. Kluber retired his final eight batters, reaching the Yankees’ season high for innings, and lowered his E.R.A. “Once we got them sped up, the changeup was effective.”The Yankees won in 2 hours 14 minutes, their shortest game over nine innings since May 15, 2019.
