Game 125: 10 wins in a row

Someone’s nine-game winning streak was coming to an end tonight, but not the Yankees’. The Bombers dropped the Braves by the score of 5-1 in Atlanta to extend the team’s winning streak into double-digits.

Jordan Montgomery wasn’t his best, but Jonathan Loaisiga and the bullpen shut things down behind him. Meanwhile, Giancarlo Stanton carried the offense as the Yankees made easy work of the second-hottest team in the league. Things are good right now for the Yankees, huh? Let’s get to tonight’s takeaways:

Game 119: Montgomery returns in yet another nailbiter

If we’ve learned one thing from 2021, it’s that the Yankees will never, ever let us breathe.  In the first game of this split double-header against the Boston Red Sox, the Yankees once again took it down to the wire to secure a 5-3 win in seven innings and pull within one game of the Red Sox in the AL East and Wild Card standings.  To the takeaways –

Game 98: Déjà Vu

Fun fact: Olivia Rodrigo’s hit song Déjà Vu is actually about the 2021 New York Yankees. Today, the Yankees replayed their biggest hit in a 5-4 loss to the Red Sox: a gut-wrenching bullpen meltdown.

The Yankees were in total control through seven-and-a-half innings today. They led 4-0 and Domingo Germán was working on a no-hitter. Then, it all came crashing down like it has so many times before this season. To the takeaways we go:

There are bad losses, and there are bad losses. This one was the latter. The Yankees fell to the Royals 6-5 in the series opener.

Gerrit Cole did his thing with lower spin rates again, but his offense was of little help. He handed a one-run lead to the Jonathan Loaisiga, who coughed it up with significant help from Tyler Wade. DJ LeMahieu’s two-run blast in the eighth cut Kansas City’s lead to one, and the Yankees threatened in the ninth, but it wasn’t enough. Not only was Cole’s start spoiled, but so was Luke Voit’s return to the lineup. To tonight’s takeaways:

The Yankees dropped this afternoon’s affair to the Blue Jays, 5-4. Bo Bichette, who homered twice in this one, delivered a walk off home run against Chad Green in the ninth. The Yankees are now 5-7 and have lost three of the four series they’ve played thus far.

Corey Kluber delivered another less-than-ideal outing and the offense sputtered again. The bullpen kept the Yankees in the game, but the relievers can only keep doing so much. I’ll expand on Kluber, the bats, and the ‘pen in the takeaways from this one after the jump.
