Oswaldo Cabrera enjoyed the premiere

He called his first game with the Yankees "a dream come true."

Oswaldo Cabrera's debut with the New York Yankees last Wednesday night was not successful from an individual point of view.

As third base and sixth bat for the Bronx mules, he intervened in five outs with the participation of an assist for a total of six throws, while with the wood he went 4-0 with a couple of strikeouts in the game that the mules they beat the Rays 8-7, thanks to a home run to Josh Donaldson in the tenth inning.

Aaron Boone, manager of the New York team who, with Wednesday's victory, achieved only his second victory in the last eight games, affirmed that the rise of the 23-year-old native of Guarenas, took place to take advantage of his versatility as an infielder and as a formula to "wake up" the team, which was achieved with Donaldson's game-winning shot.

"I couldn't hit my first hit, it will come," Oswaldo Cabrera said with a smile after the meeting attended by his parents.

“It was satisfying because we won. I'm excited about this, it was amazing, very exciting. It's a dream come true."

Oswaldo Cabrera was on fire at the AAA branch. He was 76-for-29 for a .382 average in the last 20 games with 5 home runs, 17 RBIs and eight steals. He didn't show frustration at going blank on the day of his premiere.

In his first at-bat, he flied out to right, struck out swinging in the fourth and sixth innings and grounded to second in the eighth.

"You have to keep fighting every time you go out on the field," said the rookie from Mirandino.
