Game 112. Yanks edge Chisox in 13, 4-3. Yanks pitchers strike out 20.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

Sonny Gray pitched three scoreless innings of relief and got the win as the Yanks (70-42) edged the Chicago White Sox 4-3 in 13 innings Tuesday night.

Yankees’ pitchers combined for 20 strikeouts in the game.

CC Sabathia turned the clock back some ten years by striking out 12 in 5 2/3 innings, but left trailing 1-0, having given up a run in the third.

The Yanks didn’t get a hit until the sixth. In the sixth, they had runners on first and third with no one out but didn’t score.

The Yanks tied the game in the seventh when Miguel Andujar hit his 15th HR of the season.

In the top of the tenth, Giancarlo Stanton hit a 2-run HR (26) to put the Yanks up 3-1, but with two out in the bottom of the tenth, Zach Britton gave up a 2-run HR to Jose Abreu that tied the game.

In the top of the 13th, Didi walked with one out. After Torres struck out, Voit singled Didi to second and Andujar singled him in, 4-3 Yanks, the final score.

For the second straight night, a Yankee batter was robbed of a HR by Adam Engel. This time Kyle Higashioka was robbed.

Clint Frazier not happy at some comments Michael Kay made about Frazier’s stint on the DL re: concussion issues.

Ex-MLB player (and a former Yankee) Esteban Loaiza will get years in jail for running a drug ring. From the NY Post (edited):

Former Yankees pitcher Esteban Loaiza is expected to change his plea later this week in a felony cocaine distribution case, according to a report.

Loaiza — who was arrested in February in San Diego after authorities said they found 44 pounds of cocaine in a van parked in the garage of a rented townhouse — has a “change of plea” hearing listed in Southern California US District Court on Friday, WLS-TV reports.

The Tijuana-born Loaiza, 46, initially pleaded not guilty in February. A change of plea hearing results in a defendant submitting a guilty plea in “99 percent” of all criminal cases, according to the station’s legal analyst Gil Soffer, a former federal prosecutor.

…..

Federal investigators have said they believe Loaiza used the rented townhome as an intermediate destination for cocaine. Prior to his arrest, during which Loaiza was pulled over for a traffic violation and cops found a sophisticated compartment to hide contraband in his Mercedes-Benz, the former MLB star had crossed the Mexican border earlier that day, prosecutors said.

Authorities later obtained a search warrant for Loaiza’s rented home in Imperial Beach, where investigators said they found 44 pounds of cocaine stored less than 1,000 feet from an elementary school.

Loaiza, who posted bail in May, faces a mandatory 10-year minimum sentence and up to life in prison if convicted, according to the station.

Loaiza pitched for nine teams throughout his 14-season career, including the Yankees, Dodgers, White Sox and Pirates. He retired in 2008 with a 126-114 record and a 4.65 career ERA. He was a two-time All-Star and the second-winningest Mexican pitcher in MLB history, second only to Fernando Valenzuela. In 2003, he finished second in the American League Cy Young voting and started the All-Star Game.

Minor League Report. Frazier Injured?

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

I don’t know if the Yanks would have traded Clint Frazier anyway, word is he’s off the table, but it may turn out that they couldn’t anyway. Frazier dove for a ball in the first inning and was pulled from the game shortly thereafter.

Game 95. Yanks fall, 5-2. Hit break 4 1/2 back.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

The Yanks lost to Cleveland today (Sunday), 5-2, and because Boston won, the 62-33 Yanks hit the All-Star break 4 1/2 games behind Boston.

They next play on Friday at home against the Mets. The rotation after the break will be German, Gray, Tanaka vs the Mets, then Severino (Rays), then CC as Boone gives Severino and CC a little extra recovery time.

Clint Frazier was sent back down to SWB after the game.

The Yanks loaded the bases in the first inning but didn’t score.

In the third, Gardner singled and went to second on a WP. One out later, Didi singled but Gardner had to be held at third. After yet another out, Hicks singled in Gardner.

Neil Walker homered (3) in the fourth to put the Yanks up 2-0, but the offense couldn’t score after that.

Tanaka gave up a 2-run HR in the bottom of the fourth that tied the game. In fifteen starts this year, there have been only two in which Tanaka didn’t give up a HR.

In the eighth, Chad Green gave up 3 runs, including one on a HR, and the Yanks were sunk.

Stanton 2 hits
Walker solo HR.

Tanaka 6 1/3 IP, 2 R, 6 H, 1 W, 5 K. Gave up 1 HR.  4.54
Green (L, 5-2, 2.74) 1 2/3 IP, 3 R, 3 H, 1 W, 2 K. Gave up 1 HR.

Game 88. 1st game of DH. Yanks lose, 5-4.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

Game 1 of today’s DH. A disappointing 5-4 loss to Baltimore (now 25-65) which drops the 58-30 Yanks 2 1/2 back of Boston. I was born after 1954, but anyone remember 1954? After winning 5 WS in a row,  the 1954 Yankees went 103-51 but finished 8 games back of Cleveland, who were swept in the WS. Those 1954 Yankees were the only team Casey Stengel had that won more than 100 in a season. Chasing Boston this year makes me think of 1954. Hope it doesn’t wind up like that.

This was a very disappointing loss to a team that even after this win, was just 25-65.

The Yanks went up 1-0 in the second on a HR by Stanton (22). They got 2 in the third on a double by Higashioka, single by Wade which moved Higa to 3rd. Hicks grounded into a DP, Wade moving to second, but Judge then singled in one run,  and moving to second on the play at the plate. Didi then singled in Judge. Up 3-0, CC on the mound.

But they blew it. CC gave up a 2-run HR in the bottom of the fourth, 3-2.

In the sixth, Stanton singled, moved up on a groundout, and scored on a single by Neil Walker, 4-2.

But they tried to push CC past the fifth inning, and in the sixth, a walk, double, and 3-run HR cost the Yanks the game, 5-4.

In the ninth, the Yanks got a runner on third with one out, but Higashioka struck out and Gardner grounded out.

Higashioka is like, 5 for 38 in his MLB career, 3 HR, 1 double, but I wonder if a squeeze was in play there. I don’t know if Higgy can bunt, but…. 5 for 38 is 5 for 38. A squeeze play may have been in order there.  He struck out and Gardner (PH for Wade) grounded out.

The Yanks struck out 12x in the game, Clint Frazier 3x.

Stanton 2 hits, HR, RBI.

Sabathia (L, 6-4, 3.34)  5+ IP, 5 R, 7 H, 3 W, 4 K. Gave up 2 HR.
Holder 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 1 W, 1 K.  1.98
Cole 2 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 0 W, 3 K. 5.33 (W/NYY combined).

 

Game 86. Seve not sharp, but wins 14th.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

Luis Severino only lasted 5 innings, giving up 3 runs on 2 HR, but it was enough to win his 14th game of the season as the Yanks beat Toronto 8-5 on Saturday.

The win keeps the 57-29 Yanks two games behind Boston.

Brett Gardner and Aaron Judge hit back-to-back HRs to lead off the game. For Gardner, #6 and for Judge, #25. Later in that first inning, Brandon Drury hit a 2-run double.

Seve gave up a 2-run HR in the second, but Brett Gardner hit a 2-run triple in the third and then scored on a PB. 7-2 Yanks.

Severino gave up a HR in the fourth. 7-3.

Toronto got a run in the sixth, 7-4.

In the ninth, Miguel Andujar singled and Didi Gregorius singled him home. 8-4. Chasen Shreve gave up a HR in the ninth for the final of 8-5, Yanks.

Aaron Hicks and Aroldis Chapman both had to leave the game with minor injuries. Both are probably out for Sunday but hopefully, it appears that neither is long-term.

Before the game, the Yanks DFA’d David Hale and brought up Clint Frazier. Frazier had to be used when Hicks had to be pulled.

Also, Jonathan Loiasiga appears to be DL-bound. Shoulder inflammation. He is seeing a doctor on Monday.

The Yanks drew 10 walks in the game.

Gardner 2 hits, HR, triple, 3 RBI.
Judge solo HR.
Drury 2 RBI
Severino (W, 14-2, 2.12) 5 IP, 3 R, 5 H, 2 W, 5 K. Gave up 2 HR.
