Make it four straight losses. The Red Sox beat the Yankees in 10 innings tonight, 6-5, and completed the weekend sweep at Yankee Stadium. Just another awful, no good, and miserable performance from the Yankees tonight. The umpiring didn’t help, but it also doesn’t excuse the rest of what happened. Here are the takeaways from tonight’s game:
Tag: Domingo German Page 2 of 12
The Yankees lost to the Blue Jays 2-0 this afternoon in the first of two today at Yankee Stadium. Toronto is now 6-2 against the Yanks this season. There’s really not much more to say about this one other than the fact that the lineup is beyond atrocious at the moment. Yeah, they miss Giancarlo Stanton (who’s back tomorrow) and it stinks to lose Luke Voit again, but that doesn’t excuse a number of disappointing performances from this lineup. Hopefully, the nightcap is better than this. One good thing I can say about this one: it didn’t take very long. Here are the takeaways:
Outside of Domingo Germán’s dominance on the mound this afternoon, this game wasn’t pretty. Fortunately, mostly quiet bats and atrocious baserunning didn’t matter in the end. Hey, not allowing a run can make a world of difference, and that’s exactly what Germán and the bullpen did in today’s 2-0 victory over Texas. To the takeaways:
This one was over early. Staked with a 5-0 lead after the 2nd inning, hopefully most of you were able to enjoy this beautiful Saturday evening at peace knowing that the Yankees would once again beat the lowly Orioles.
A 2-run single by Gary Sánchez (more on him later) gave the Yankees a 3 run lead before Domingo Germán even toed the rubber tonight. With this 8-2 victory, the Bombers are now a season high five games over .500 at 22-17 and have secured another series win, their 5th in a row. Here are the takeaways from tonight’s laugher.
Nothing can ever erase what the Astros did in 2017, but tonight was satisfying, at least. The Yankees beat Houston 7-3 and the crowd gave it to the Astros all night. It was wonderful.
Not only was this win cathartic, but it was also an exciting game. Giancarlo Stanton did big things on offense yet again (more on him coming) and there were a handful of dramatic plays. Some on defense, which was a pleasant surprise considering how ugly that had looked for the Yankees earlier this year. But the most exciting: how the Yankees took the lead for good on Alex Bregman’s throwing error in the sixth. Couldn’t have happened to a better guy. Anyway, let’s get to tonight’s takeaways:
