Luis Severino had an off night, pitching from behind, and gave up 2 HR as the Yanks lost to Toronto 7-1 to fall to 15-9 on the season.
Severino gave up a 2-run HR in the second.
The Yanks got their only run in the fourth on an RBI single by Judge.
In the sixth a SF plated not one but two runs as Jacoby Ellsbury made the catch up against the fence. Soon afterward Severino gave up a solo HR.
Luis Cessa, just up from SWB (and Bryan Mitchell was sent down) gave up a 2-run HR in the seventh.
Severino (L, 2-2, 3.86) 5 2/3 IP, 5 R, 8 H, 2 W, 3 K. Gave up 2 HR.
Cessa 3 1/3 IP, 2 R, 4 H, 1 W, 1 K. 5.40. Gave up 1 Hr.
You have to wonder how long the Yanks will put up with Greg Bird’s struggles before he is sent down to right himself. He is down to .100 (6 for 60) and 3 of those hits came in one game. It is shocking after he had such a great spring training.
