AAA: SWB won 5-2. Chad Green (1-3, 1.45) 1 R, 4 H, 6 IP. If the Yanks need to send Severino down for more seasoning, Green may be a replacement. Gary Sanchez double, HR, 3 RBI.

AA: Trenton lost 4-2. Tyler Wade 2 hits, Tyler Austin 2 hits, solo HR.

High A: Tampa won 6-5 in 10. Brody Koemer 2 R in 7 1/3 IP. Jorge Mateo 2 h, solo HR. He is 8 of 14 in SB this year. Miguel Andujar 4 hits, 2 doubles, HR, 3 RBI. Abiatal Avelino solo HR. Zack Zehner 2 hits.

Game 24. O’s 4, Yanks 1.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

I think it’s safe to say that the bottom has dropped out, but how low can the Yanks go? And what will Hal Steinbrenner do about it? We know the old man is probably rolling over in his grave.

With their 14th loss in their last 18 games, the Yanks have fallen to 8-16. This isn’t a slump for this year, either. Going back to last year, the Yanks are 35-45 in their last 80 games.

Mark Trumbo hit 2 HR off of Luis Severino, and Severino made two errors on missed catches last night as the Yanks lost at Baltimore 4-1.

Didi Gregorius singled in a run in the top of the second, but Severino gave it right back on a solo HR by Trumbo.

One thing I failed to mention at the Lehigh Valley Yankee Fan Club Meeting last night was this: how often have you noticed that when the Yanks DO score, the pitcher gives it right back? No shurdown innings. When you score and your pitcher gives it right back, that deflates an offense. It takes the air right out of the balloon. Not only are the Yanks having trouble scoring, but when they do, the pitchers are giving it right back.

One of the two Severino errors led to an Orioles run in the fourth, and Trumbo hit a 2-run HR off of Severino in the fifth.

The struggling Chase Headley is down to .147 and still doesn’t have an extra base hit.

Severino (L, 0-4, 6.31) 6 IP, 4 R, 3 ER, 5 H, 2 walks, 4 K. Gave up the 2 HR to Trumbo.
Yates 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 walks, 0 K. 3.12
Barbato 1 IP, 0 r, 0 H, 0 walks, 2 K, 5.25

Game 23. Boston beats Yanks, Betances, again, 8-7.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

It was a lost weekend in Boston as for the second time in three days, Dellin Betances served up a HR that decided the game in Boston’s favor. The Yanks lost Sunday night 8-7.

Things aren’t good, to say the least. The Yanks were swept this weekend in Boston, have lost five in a row, and 13 of their last 17. They are now 8-15.

Alex Rodriguez had a 2-run HR (5, 692) and a two-run double.

Both starters, Eovaldi for the Yanks and Price for Boston, struggled.

Backup OF Aaron Hicks is now 2 for 26 on the season.

Jacoby Ellsbury made a bad baserunning play in the first that may have cost the Yanks a run.

The Yanks are off today. They need it.

Eovaldi 5 IP, 6 R, 10 H, 3 walks, 3 K. 5.46. Gave up 1 HR.
Nova (L, 1-1, 5.14) 1 2/3 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 0 walks, 0 K.
