After he posted a 2.30 ERA in his first six starts this season, he had a 7.97 ERA in his last five.

He threw 97 pitches last night, 68 strikes. Girardi said he thought Velasquez “was probably pretty close to out of gas” at the end of the seventh, which is why the skipper turned to Brogdon.

“That’s the best performance Vinny has had for us all year, and we really needed it,” Girardi said.

“Just filling up the strike zone,” Velasquez said about his night. “I didn’t walk anybody. That’s a big plus.”
