Yankees beat Reds 4-2 in series opener behind Gregorius and Montgomery

Newly acquired third baseman Todd Frazier spent his first five games with the Yankees on the road, playing once in Minnesota and four games in Seattle.

It was the first triple play against the Yankees since the Rays did it on September 27, 2011.

"Can laugh about it now", he said, according to ESPN. "But it was a great experience from start to finish, and we got the W".

"It'll be great having my family, my brothers, and my kids", Frazier said. "Gardy was laughing at me and someone asked for the ball I think, but it's unbelievable; you get into a hitter's count, and that's the way it goes. Hopefully, that doesn't ever happen again".

Frazier definitely did that - he grounded into a triple play.

Gregorius, who had been on second base, held up when the ball was hit, in case it was caught. The Reds forced the rundown, and Gregorious was called out for running outside the basepath. That brought Frazier up to the plate in an ideal run-scoring situation: bases loaded, no one out. Castillo also took the loss against Washington despite a quality start in his previous turn, allowing three runs on six hits over six innings. "Triple play, bases loaded, that's wonderful".

Instead of trying to tag Gregorius, Peraza remained focused on picking up the double play.

Frazier had a prime opportunity to become a "true Yankee" in his first at-bat at Yankee Stadium. And, of course, he's played nine games at the new Stadium during his time with the Reds and White Sox, hitting.235 along the way.

Cincinnati turned a triple play for the first time since September 12, 1995, against the Florida Marlins.

For a while, Frazier's triple play was not the only memorable event for the Yankees as Jordan Montgomery (7-5) faced the minimum and took a no-hitter into the sixth.

The Yankees got that run back in the bottom of the eighth on Gregorius's 15th home run of the season, a solo shot into the Yankees' bullpen off reliever Michael Lorenzen.

The Yankees added another run in the fifth as Tyler Wade reached on a fielder's choice, and then motored home on Austin Romine's RBI double to right to give the Yankees a 3-0 lead.

The Reds scored on Arismendy Alcantra's groundout in the sixth and Billy Hamilton's double in the eighth.
