Game 162. Yanks fall, 10-2, finish 100-62. Wild Card game next.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

The Yanks lost the season finale, 10-2, to finish the season at 100-62, 2nd in the AL East, 8 behind Boston. They now prepare for the sudden death wild card game at the Stadium on Wednesday night vs. the 97 win A’s.

Not a good day for a tweener, Cessa, or two rookies in Loaisiga and Sheffield.

Luke Voit got two of the Yanks’ four hits, and his 2-run HR (15, 14 as a Yankee) accounted for both of the Yankees’ runs. So the record is 267 HR in a season by one team, the 2018 Yankees.

The Yanks made 3 errors in this game.

Miguel Andujar got his 47th double of the season tying Fred Lynn’s record for most by an AL rookie.

Gary Sanchez finished at .186, the lowest batting average in Yankees’ history for someone with, say, 300 plate appearances.  1970 Jerry Kenney was the previous low.

Cessa (L, 1-4, 5.24) 1/3 IP, 4 R, 3 ER, 5 H, 0 W, 0 K.
Robertson 2/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K.  3.23
Loaisiga 2 IP, 3 R, 0 ER,  4 H, 0 W, 2 K. gave up 1 HR.   5.11
Sheffield 1 1P, 3 R, 2 H, 2 W, 0 K.  Gave up 1 HR.  10.13
Tarpley 1 2/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 2 W, 4 K.  3.00
Cole 1 1/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 1 W, 2 K.  6.14 (Wash/NYY)

Game 146. Yanks don’t get a hit until 8th in 3-1 loss. WC lead down to 1 game.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

Some people are blaming Aaron Boone. It isn’t Aaron Boone. Boone isn’t the reason Giancarlo Stanton’s batting average has dropped 20-25 points in the past few weeks, and he isn’t the reason Sanchez and Bird are hitting under .200.

The players have to look in the mirror.

Maybe hitting coach Marcus Thames shares some blame but it is the players who need to get it done.

The good news tonight is that Luis Severino started to resemble again the Severino we saw at the beginning of the year.

The bad news is that the Yanks (90-56) didn’t get a hit until the eighth inning, and that any chance the Yanks might pull the game out late was flushed away by David Robertson.

The last time the Yanks were no-hit was in 2003, but it took six pitchers by Houston to do it after starter Roy Oswalt left with an injury. The last time a single pitcher no-hit the Yanks was almost sixty years ago to the day, 9-20-1958, by Hoyt Wilhelm of Baltimore.

Entering the bottom of the sixth, there was one hit in the whole game, and that was by the Twins.

Severino gave up a run in the sixth.

Robertson gave up two in the seventh.

Meanwhile, the Yanks were getting no-hit. With one out in the eighth, Voit walked, Bird doubled and the no-hitter and shutout were both gone.

But that was it. Andujar got a hit in the ninth, but two hits all game. Very tired bats.

Sad to say, but Stanton looks tired and lost right now. Down to .264.

The failures of Sanchez (.186) and Bird (.196) aren’t on Boone right now. The only thing Boone can do is drop them in the lineup or not play them at all. He cannot hit for them.

They have to look at themselves in the mirror and get pissed off at what they are seeing.

The Yanks’ lead for the top WC spot is down to just one game because Oakland beat the Bad News Bears (AKA the 41-104 Baltimore Orioles) tonight. If the Yanks have to rely on a 41-104 team to help them out…. well, you get the picture. Get things done yourself.

Severino (L, 17-8, 3.46) 5 2/ 3 IP, 1 R, 4 H, 0 W, 5 K.
Robertson 1 1/3 IP, 2 R, 3 H, 0 W, 2 K.  2.98. Poor job keeping the Yanks in the game.
Britton 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K.  3.71 (Balt/NYY).
