Game 89. Yanks fall, 5-3.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

Once again, the Yanks get to .500 only to fall back. Michael Pineda gave up three home runs in a 5-3 loss to Boston Friday night in the first game after the All-Star break. The loss dropped the Yanks to 44-45.

Boston’s Ryan Hanigan hit a solo HR in the third, Travis Shaw a 2-run HR in the fifth, and  Xander Bogaerts a 2-run HR in the sixth to put Boston up 5-0.

The Yanks got three in the sixth on a 2-run bases-loaded single by Carlos Beltran and an RBI groundout by Brian McCann. The first 14 Yankees went down in order, and the Yanks manaaged just four hits.

The game was the first of a tough 10-game homestand in which the Yanks face Boston, Baltimore and San Francisco.It very well may determine the Yanks’ season. There are rumors that there is division in the front office about whether the Yanks should be buyers or sellers. The rumors have Hal Steinbrenner and Randy Levine as buyers but everyone else as wanting to be sellers. Personally, I think they should be sellers.

Pineda (L, 3-9, 5.56) 5+ IP, 5 R, 5 H, 1 walk, 6 K. 3 of the 5 hits given up were HR.
Shreve 2/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 2 walks, 0 K. 4.50
