Tonight’s 7-1 Yankees loss to Seattle was very disappointing. The Yanks were 0 for 12 with RISP.
Brett Gardner hit his first HR of the year in the first inning, and Seattle tied it in the fourth.
The Yanks may have lost the game right in the bottom of the fourth. They had runners and 2nd and 3rd, no one out, and Gregorius, Headley and Ellsbury all struck out.
After that it all went downhill. Luis Severino was good for three innings, then lost it, and the bullpen didn’t help.
Tyler Olson made his
MLB Yankees (he pitched in 11 games for Seattle last year, my bad) debut, and Luis Cessa was sent to SWB. One reason for this is because Seattle had a bunch of lefty hitters and the Yanks wanted to swap out the righty Cessa for the lefty Olson.
Severino (L, 0-2, 5.91) 5 2/3 IP, 4 R, 8 H, 1 walk and 2 K.
Yates 2/3 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 1 walk and 1 K. 5.40
Olson 2 2/3 IP, 2 R, 3 H, 2 walks, 0 K. 6.75.
The Yanks can’t like who they see tomorrow. It’s King Felix vs. CC. Hopefully the bats, which have been dead for a few days, wake up so that they snap this three-game losing streak which has dropped them to 4-5.
