After Russell took a strong hack at the first pitch he saw, Braves pitcher Max Fried threw Wilson a nasty curve that had him swing and miss for strike three in his first at-bat with the Yankees.
“He took a big swing on the first pitch, and I kind of was expecting it,” Fried said. “But also saw he was being aggressive. So at the end of the day, I’m just trying to get the guy out. Doesn’t matter who he is.”
