Matt Carpenter continues to make New York Yankees history with a career game against the Chicago Cubs

NEW YORK — When Matt Carpenter arrived at the stadium Sunday morning, he began preparing for another day on the bench, his eighth straight game out of the starting lineup.

When Gleyber Torres was dropped, feeling ill before the first pitch, Carpenter’s number was suddenly announced, the veteran’s first chance to play the field in the pinstripes.

Carpenter not only played formidable defense at third base in Sunday’s series finale against the Cubs, but enjoyed his first roll call at Yankee Stadium, the left-hander put in a professional performance at the plate, continuing his historic start in his career with the Yankees.
