What a frustrating game. Two rain delays. Great pitching. Awful offense. Turn the page. Forget about it. But for now I recap it and rant about it...also some good news regarding Hicks and Bird.
This the kind of game you try to forget and we probably will. Not much effort from the offense as they fall flat again and drop this one 4-3. CC struggled but was able to give them 6 innings. The bullpen was dominating. Didi had a great game with 3 RBIs...the only 3 runs the Yankees scored.
Pinstripes Recap is back!
The Yankees acquired many players while we were gone. Including strengthening the bullpen, strengthening the starting rotation (hello Gray!) and taking back first place of the AL East.
Today they won 7-3 even though Severino was only able to give the Yankees 5 innings. Headley has been clutch and hot, and Judge got his 34th homer of the season.
A brutal final stretch to the first half of the season comes to an end as the Yankees drop 2 out of 3 to the Brewers, at home. The first one was a brutal 9-4 loss. Thankfully Clint Frazier saved the Yankees with a 3 run walk of homer on Saturday to win it 5-3 and then the Yankees drop the last one 5-3.
Once again, the bullpen can't keep a lead. Allowing the opposition to take the lead, without them hitting a single hit, is very frustrating. I rant A LOT in this one, as the Yankees drop the last one of a three game set against the Blue Jays, 7-6.
CC was back on the mound for the Yankees on this one but wasn't able to last more than 3 innings. Unfortunately he allowed 4 runs in the third and that is all the Blue Jays needed to win this one 4-1. Aaron Judge had a solo shot which resulted in the only run for the Yankees.
Tanaka had another great start for the Yankees, going 7 solid innings allowing just one run. The Yankees were able to put 6 runs on the board to help their ace win this one, 6-3.
Chapman, however, struggled once again. And a few announcements about the All Star game and the homerun derby.
Friday's game was amazing. The Yankees dominated in every sense of the word and won 13-4. Unfortunately, another bullpen meltdown on Saturday, this time from Betances, made the Yankees lose 7-6. Then on Sunday it was all Astros, as they won that one 8-1.
Clint Frazier got his first double and first homerun though!
After a heartbreaking loss on Tuesday night, the Yankees showed no mercy on Wednesday as they won 12-3. Tanaka had a quality start, Andujar drove in 4 runs in his first game, Wade had his first MLB hit and of course...Judge hit another homerun! His 27th of the season. Fun game all around.
Montgomery gave the Yankees a VERY solid outing. Pitching 7 innings, with 8 strikeouts and allowing just 1 run in that span. The bullpen was a little shaky as Betances and Chapman were still needed in a game that was 6-1 in favor of the Yankees in the 8th. But the Yankees were able to pull ahead and win this one 6-5.
