Sonny Gray has pitched well since the Yankees traded for him. ERA 3.13.
However he is 1-3 as a Yankee because the Yankees haven’t hit for him.
Sunday was another example. The Yanks lost 5-1 to Boston, dropping them five behind Boston with 39 games to go. The Yanks are 66-57.
They only got three hits in the game, two by Brett Gardner. Gardner’s 20th HR of the season accounted for their only run.
Aaron Judge struck out for the 37th consecutive game. Hopefully that streak ends soon. He also made a bad defensive play, lobbing the ball in while getting suckered by Mookie Betts, who tagged up and went to third. I think Judge will be firing the ball back in from now on. Betts didn’t score, but…
Tommy Kahnle struggled, just like he did Friday night vs. Boston.

When CC came off the DL, Montgomery was sent down to SWB to control his innings.
