New York Yankees pain reliever Lou Trivino tries to change after a warm-up with the wrong shirt
OAKLAND, California – When New York Yankees reliever medication Lou Trivino received a tap on the shoulder as he heated up in the barn, it was to warn him that he was wearing the wrong jersey: number 50 belongs to Jameson Taillon instead of his own 56.
Trivino took off his sweatshirt to throw a ball on a cool Friday night at the Coliseum, and the problem became clear. He starts the warm-up in case a replacement is needed Wandy Peraltawho surrendered an RBI single to pinch-hitter players Dermis García but finished the game which lasted 2 hours and 50 minutes for a third save as New York beat Oakland Athletics 3-2.
“I don’t know. It happens,” said Trivino. “…I’m heating up. I didn’t even notice.”
A Batman boy rushed out with a matching jersey, and Trivino quickly changed.
Trivino, whom A deals with New York on the deadline with Frankie Montas, said he wasn’t sure who told him about the mix-up. He laughed, saying, “This isn’t the first time, it probably won’t be the last.”
So has he done it before? “Oh, yes, who hasn’t?” he cracked it and agreed that next time he can try Aaron Judgenumber 99 for a bit of fun.
Trivino joked that he wanted some attention because he wasn’t competing. He was fine.
“I didn’t know it,” Judge said, grinning, “I’m going to have to confront him.”
