Game 152. Yanks blanked, 2-0.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

Gary Sanchez can’t come to the rescue and hit a HR every day. He didn’t on Thursday night and his teammates couldn’t step up as the Yanks lost to Tampa Bay 2-0.

Luis Cessa pitched well, giving up a run in the first and a solo HR in the sixth, but with no offensive support….

The loss drops the Yanks to 79-73. They are almost eliminated (E #1) as far as winning the division goes. They are 3 out of the final wild card slot with 10 games to go, and need to jump 4 teams.

Before the game, the Yanks sold Phil Coke to the Pirates.

Masahiro Tanaka will miss his next start because of a forearm strain. If the Yanks are completely out of it, they should then just shut him down for the season.

Cessa (L, 4-3, 4.30) 6 IP, 2 R, 6 H, 2 walks, 6 K.
Severino 2 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 walks, 3 K. 5.70.
