Not a good night. Nathan Eovaldi went against the team that traded him to the Yanks and couldn’t get out of the first inning, putting the Yanks behind the 8-ball. He got only two outs and gave up 8 runs as the Yanks lost 12-2 to the Miami Marlins Tuesday night.
The loss keeps the Yanks in second, one game behind the Rays in the AL East. Toronto and Baltimore are each just one game behind the Yanks. Four teams are within two games of each other. The Yanks are 34-30.
Eovaldi was part of a trade that saw the Yanks send David Phelps to Miami. Ironically both pitched against each other last night and Phelps got the better of it.
Not much more to say about this one. One inning in, the Yanks were down 8-0.
One thing I am worried about? In his last 30 games, Brett Gardner is in a slump, hitting .211. Hopefully he snaps out of it soon.
