Game #59. Sevy’s awful first inning dooms Yanks. Dodgers win 8-4.

When you are facing a future first ballot Hall-of-Famer, you don’t want to give him a big cushion to work with. But that is what Luis Severino did. Sevy had an awful first inning, giving up six runs, and after one inning Dodgers’ starter Clayton Kershaw had a 6-0 lead.

The Yanks saw a couple of familiar faces for the first time in a while and were probably glad that they won’t see them as often since they are out of the division with the Dodgers and not with the Red Sox anymore. That would be Mookie Betts (probably a future HOF in his own right) and J. D. Martinez (who can also make a case for the HOF).

Betts hit Severino’s second pitch of the game for a HR, and after a hard-hit out and a single, Max Muncy hit a 2-run HR to put LA up 3-0. Just what you don’t want against Kershaw. If you look at the Dodgers’ team stats on baseball-reference.com, guess who the #1 Dodger of all-time is according to WAR? It’s not Duke Snider, Gil Hodges, Sandy Koufax, Jackie Robinson or name another Dodger great. It’s Kershaw. Giving him a 3-0 lead is usually death to your team.

But the Dodgers were not done in the first. Four straight singles made it 4-0. A SF made it 5-0. Even the outs were hit hard. The Dodgers batted around, and Betts hit a single to make it 6-0. And Betts wasn’t done for the night.

The only thing encouraging for the Yankees was that both of the sluggers who came off the IL after being on it for over a month homered last night. The first was Josh Donaldson, whose solo HR (2) in the top of the second made it 6-1. Donaldson would hit another HR, a two-run shot, in the top of the ninth.

But Martinez hit a solo HR in the bottom of the third for LA to put the Dodgers up 7-1. It was the third HR Sevy gave up for the night. As I mentioned, even the outs he got were loud outs.

Giancarlo Stanton, the other Yankees’ slugger activated off the IL before the game, homered (5) in the top of the fourth off of Kershaw and it was 7-2.

In the bottom of the sixth, Betts proved he wasn’t done, hitting his second HR of the game, this one off of Ryan Weber, to put the Dodgers up 8-2. Betts was 4 for 4 last night with 2 HR and 3 RBI.

Donaldson’s second HR of the game (3), a 2-run shot, closed out the scoring. Yanks lost 8-4.

The Yanks only got five hits on the night, and three of them, all HR, were by guys just off the IL in Donaldson and Stanton.

The loss dropped the Yanks to 34-25. They are in 3rd place in the AL East, 6 1/2 behind first place Tampa Bay and 3 behind second place Baltimore. If the playoffs started today, the Yanks would have the 6th and last playoff spot in the AL. They hold that spot by 2 1/2 games over Toronto. Long way to go, though.

Stanton solo HR (5).
Donaldson 2 HR (3). Solo and 2-run shots.

Severino (L, 0-1) 4 IP, 7 R, 9 H, 1 W, 2 K. Gave up 3 HR. 5.28

I’m starting to worry about Anthony Volpe. He hasn’t stolen a base since May 13. Of course, you can’t steal if you aren’t getting on base. His average is down to .190. Since May 14, he is 7 for 58. That is a .121 batting average in that span. He has just 3 walks to go against 21 strikeouts. He is noted for his good eye and his speed and baserunning ability, but neither has shown up lately. Since May 2, he’s only hitting .152 with five walks and 36 strikeouts. It’s not just a recent slump. It’s been going on a while. He’s only 22, and we all (myself included) advocated for him after his phenomenal spring training. We do need to be patient with him, but remember he only had 22 games of AAA experience before the jump to the majors. For those who say AAA doesn’t matter and want to jump players right from AA to the majors, I disagree and point to Volpe as an example. Sure, some stars can do it. But it is rare. Some, like Al Kaline, never played a day in the minors. But it is rare. You wonder if Volpe, like Mickey Mantle in 1951, needs to be sent down to get his mojo back. Oswald Peraza has been raking at AAA lately. Is a switch in order? Volpe is on a pace for 22 HR and 60+ RBI. He is also on a 35 SB pace. Those are great numbers, but that pace has dropped off. I’m patient, but .190, OPS+ 71 and .152 over the last month is concerning. He’s human and at some point, you probably feel he is pressing or starting to press. You don’t want to destroy his confidence, but at some point, you need to see better results. Here’s hoping he turns it around, but maybe it has to start back at AAA.

Game #58. Schmidt sharp, but Yanks’ bats stymied in 1-0, 10-inning loss.

Clarke Schmidt pitched his best game of the year, but the Yanks’ bats were stymied by George Kirby (when I hear that name, I think of a comedian from way back) and Seattle relievers, not to mention some Seattle defense, in a 1-0 10-inning loss.

Gleyber Torres made a couple of nice plays to keep Seattle off the board, but it was a pitching duel throughout. The Yanks (34-24) only got three hits all game long.

In the top of the sixth, with Kyle Higashioka on second and two out, Torres hit a liner that it looked might be an RBI single, but SS J.P. Crawford leapt to snag the liner.

In the top of the seventh, with two out and D.J. LeMahieu on first, Isiah Kiner-Falefa hit a drive that seemed like it could be an RBI double, but Julio Rodriguez made a nice grab at the fence.

In the top of the tenth, the Yanks had the ghost runner on second with Oswaldo Cabrera. D.J. LeMahieu reached on an error with Cabrera moving to third. IKF popped up, but Jake Bauers walked to load the bases with one out. Anthony Volpe grounded into a force at home, and PH Franchy Cordero struck out as the Yanks wasted their chance.

Seattle had their ghost runner now, and Ron Marinaccio gave up a game-winning RBI single to the first hitter he faced, and the Yanks had lost, 1-0.

The Yanks are off today. Tommy Kahnle, Josh Donaldson and Giancarlo Stanton are expected to be activated for the weekend series against the Dodgers, and we will see what the corresponding roster moves will be.

Game #56. Judge hits 2 HR, takes one away in Yanks’ 10-4 win. Bader hurt.

Aaron Judge hit 2 homers and almost a third (a double off the wall) and robbed a Mariner of a HR in the Yanks’ (33-23) 10-4 win late last night in Seattle.

During the game, Harrison Bader had to be removed due to right hamstring tightness. He will have an MRI today and the IL is a possibility.

The Yanks struck first in the top of the second when Bader singled, stole second, went to third on an error and scored on a double by Jake Bauers.

Yanks’ starter Domingo German gave up a run in the bottom of the second and the game was tied at one.

Judge’s first HR of the game, a 2-run shot, made it 3-1 in the top of the third. Soon after that, Bader tweaked his hammy in beating out an infield hit.

Bauers hit a solo HR (3) in the top of the fourth to put the Yanks up 4-1. German gave up a run via a HR by Julio Rodriguez in the bottom of the inning and it was 4-2.

The Yanks made it 8-2 with four runs in the top of the fifth. Gleyber Torres led off the inning with a single and Judge doubled off the wall, sending Torres to third. Willie Calhoun doubled in two runs to make it 6-2. After an out, Greg Allen (in for Bader) was HBP. After another out, Isiah Kiner-Falefa doubled in both runners to make it 8-2.

German struggled with J-Rod again in the bottom of the fifth, as he singled in two runs for Seattle to make it 8-4.

In the top of the sixth, Judge hit his second HR of the game (AL Leading 17th) to make it 9-4.

Ron Marinaccio came in for German in the seventh and got two straight strikeouts with runners on second and third to get out of a jam.

In the bottom of the eighth, Judge went high above the fence and robbed Teoscar Hernandez of a HR.

Kyle Higashioka got an RBI single in the top of the ninth to make the score 10-4, and it ended that way.

Giancarlo Stanton will begin rehab today (Tuesday) with Somerset, joining Josh Donaldson and Tommy Kahnle there.

Game #17. Yanks fall to Angels 5-2.

It would have been nice to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the opening of the original Yankee Stadium with a win. It wasn’t to be however, since the Angels beat the Yankees (10-7) 5-2 last evening.

The Yanks have a problem. With Rodon, Severino and Montas on the IL, that is three starters. Others have to step up, and there is a reason those other starters are 6-7-8 and not in the top 5. Brito (who starts tonight) gave two solid outings. German was solid last time out.

But Clarke Schmidt has been awful. He has not gone more than four innings in any of his four starts this season. The Yanks are 1-3 in his starts. His ERA is close to 9.00.

The game started with Schmidt giving up a double, then Shohei Ohtani, the 2021 MVP and the runner-up to Judge for MVP last season, hit a 2-run HR. After that HR, lefty hitters had a .452 batting average vs. Schmidt this season.

Schmidt as a reliever is 5-3, 3.32 in his MLB career. In his nine MLB starts, he is 0-4, 6.55. After a while, you just have to face the facts that he may not be cut out to be a starter. The problem is, who (outside of a trade) would replace Schmidt in the rotation? There really isn’t anyone at AAA, and most top pitching prospects are at AA. Luis Gil is out for most if not all of the season after TJ surgery last year. A lot of pitchers (Sears, Wesneski, Waldichuk, Medina) were traded at last year’s trade deadline in various deals. Randy Vasquez, a top prospect at AAA, has an ERA over 8.00 himself right now. Schmidt’s number of strikeouts show potential, but he hasn’t put anything together and at some point, you wonder if he ever will. You hope, but …

The Yanks are still a few weeks away from getting Severino back. Rodon could be even longer due to back problems he is now facing. Sigh. But Schmidt can’t keep giving performances like this. Hopefully he can right himself until Sevy or Rodon come back.

The Yanks had the bases loaded in the bottom of the first but didn’t score. They left two on in the second. They drew seven walks in the game, but only got four hits.

The Angels got two more runs off of Schmidt in the fourth, knocking him out of the game.

In the bottom of the fourth, the Yanks got their two runs on a bases-loaded walk to Anthony Volpe and a SF by Aaron Judge. Judge just missed hitting a grand slam, and had to settle for the SF.

Two errors (both by Kyle Higashioka), a SB by Ohtani and a SF gave the Angels a run in the top of the fifth, making it 5-2 Angels, and there was no further scoring in the game after that.

Josh Donaldson went 1 for 3 for AA Somerset in a rehab assignment, but still felt tightness in his hamstring. Harrison Bader should be starting a rehab assignment soon. Don’t expect Giancarlo Stanton back from his hamstring injury until late May.

Game #16. Cole brilliant in Yanks’ 2-0 win.

The complete game from a pitcher has become almost obsolete, but that is what we got today from Gerrit Cole. Cole was brilliant in pitching a 2-hit shutout as the Yankees (10-6) defeated the Twins, 2-0.

Cole is 4-0 and the Yanks are 10-6. So far, he has been their MVP. With Rodon, Severino and Montas all on the IL, the rotation has been a bit of Cortes and Cole and dig out of a hole. Those two are 6-0, the rest of the team 4-6.

But despite the injuries (and that goes for relief pitchers like Trivino, Loaisiga, Kahnle and Effross, CF Harrison Bader and wait for it … I’ll mention another one in a bit) the Yankees are hanging tough.

And that other injury… Giancarlo Stanton is now on the IL with a strained hamstring. Oswald Peraza was brought up. Peraza probably won’t be up long, because Josh Donaldson will get one rehab game with AA Somerset on Tuesday then be reactivated on Wednesday.

When that happens, the Yankees can just rotate D.J. LeMahieu, Gleyber Torres and Donaldson into and out of the DH spot.

But Stanton…. it seems like he just can’t give you 140 games a season. It seems like always 100-120 out of 162.

LeMahieu was the Yankees’ offense today, getting an RBI single in the third and a solo HR in the sixth.

Cole tied Ron Guidry for the most games as a Yankee with 10 or more strikeouts. He has done it in far less games.

Anthony Volpe got his seventh stolen base in as many attempts. Once he gets his feet under him and gets that batting average up, he is going to be something to watch. Remember he doesn’t turn 22 for a few more days yet. Once he gets established, he could be a 20 HR, 50 or more SB guy. Once he can move into the leadoff spot permanently, maybe he can be a Rickey Henderson combination type of power and speed. 20/50 seems reasonable. That will be something to see. Just getting a walk could turn into a walking double or triple.

The Yanks are off tomorrow. The Angels (Trout and Ohtani) roll in on Tuesday.

LeMahieu 2 hits, 2 RBI. Solo HR (2)
Volpe SB (7).
Not a good day for Aaron Hicks. 0 for 3, 3 strikeouts.

Cole (W, 4-0) 9 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 1 W, 10 K. 0.95

Game #15. German stellar in Yanks’ 6-1 win.

Domingo German retired the first 16 batters he faced and set a personal best with 11 strikeouts in the Yankees’ (9-6) 6-1 win over the Twins Saturday afternoon.

The win came with some controversy over the rosin (a legal substance) German was using. The controversy caused Twins’ manager Rocco Baldelli to be ejected.

Kyle Higashioka gave German all the runs he would need with a 2-run HR (2) in the second inning.

Anthony Rizzo made it 3-0 with a solo HR (4) in the bottom of the third.

In the bottom of the fifth, Anthony Volpe walked, stole second, and scored on a single by D.J. LeMahieu.

Volpe had three stolen bases in the game (6), becoming the youngest Yankee to steal three in a game. It was the first time in over ten years that a Yankee had stolen three bases in a game. The last time it was done was by the oldest Yankee to do it—Ichiro Suzuki in September of 2012.

After a double by Aaron Judge, the Yanks had men on second and third with no one out but didn’t add on.

Michael King relieved German in the top of the seventh, and allowed an inherited runner to score but got a DP to work out of a jam.

A 2-run double by Giancarlo Stanton in the bottom of the seventh made the score 6-1 and that is how it stayed.

LeMahieu RBI single
Judge 1 for 2 (double), two walks.
Rizzo solo HR (4).
Stanton 2 RBI
Higashioka 2-run HR (2)
Volpe 1 for 2, 2 walks, 3 SB (6).

German (W, 1-1) 6 1/3 IP, 1 R, 3 H, 0 W, 11 K. 3.86
King 2 2/3 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 0 W, 2 K. 1.86

With Rodon, Severino and Montas out, the Yanks need German (and also Brito and Schmidt) to step up.

Ace Gerrit Cole is on the mound today for the Yanks.

Game #14. Great start, awful end. Yanks fall, 4-3.

The script started out great.

Rookie Yankees SS, lifelong Yankees fan, hits his first MLB HR to start the bottom of the first. It was the first time a Yankee leadoff hitter led off a game with his first MLB HR since Bobby Richardson in 1959.

Then …. back-to-back when the captain of the team hits one out to make it 2-0.

Add onto that a strong pitching performance by your starting pitcher.

That’s how it started. Anthony Volpe hit his first MLB HR (1), Aaron Judge followed (5) and Nasty Nestor Cortes hurled seven strong innings (he did give up two solo HR).

And along with a HR (4) later on by Giancarlo Stanton, the Yanks had a 3-2 lead going into the eighth.

With a strong part of the Minnesota lineup coming up, including ex-Astro (ugh) Carlos Correa (who had homered earlier) manager Aaron Boone went to Clay Holmes for the eighth, figuring this was the ballgame right here.

It was. But not in the way Boone or the Yankees hoped for.

Correa hit a 2-run double (he had 3 RBI for the night) and the Yanks (8-6) lost to the Twins, 4-3.

It is worth pointing out some of the pitchers on the injured list. Three starters in Rodon (who you just gave a 6-yr., $162MM deal to), Severino (hurt constantly since 2018) and Montas and also three relievers in Kahnle, Effross and Trivino. Ouch.

D.J. LeMahieu (strained quad) should be back today to shore up the infield. Josh Donaldson could be back tomorrow, but it’s unsure whether Donaldson will need a rehab assignment or not.

Before the game, Greg Weissert up, Colton Brewer DFA’d.

Tough loss. Ouch.

Volpe solo HR (1) FIRST MLB HR
Judge solo HR (5)
Stanton 2 hits, solo HR (4)
Cabrera 2 hits.

Game #10. Frustrating 3-2 loss for Yanks.

A lot happens in a 162-game season. Exhilarating wins and Frustrating losses. Last night was a frustrating loss.

Let’s count the ways.

The Yanks (6-4) scored two runs in the first after just four batters (Torres double, Judge walk, Rizzo single that loaded the bases, Stanton 2-run double) but scored no more runs in a 3-2 loss.

After that Stanton double, the Yanks still had runners on second and third with no one out. They could have blown the game open and put a hurting on Cleveland ace Shane Bieber. They didn’t score any more runs and let Bieber off the hook.

Yankees pitchers gave up only four hits. But they walked nine and that cost them.

Domingo German dropped an easy bunt popup for an error. The runner later scored.

With a tie score in the top of the seventh, no one out and a man on first, manager Aaron Boone didn’t have Isiah Kiner-Falefa (who has very little power and who is 1 for 16 so far this season) bunt. Instead, he GIDP. Not only that, but since D.J. LeMahieu was getting a day of rest, D.J. was available to PH for IKF there. I don’t know what Boone was thinking but I didn’t (and still don’t) agree with his thinking there.

Ian Hamilton walked the first two hitters he faced in the seventh. A SF later that inning turned out to be the winning run.

Cleveland got 4 SB last night.

Down 3-2 in the top of the eighth, Cleveland misplayed a Torres liner into a leadoff triple. With no outs and Torres on third, the Yanks had Judge, Rizzo, and Stanton (the meat of the order) coming up. They didn’t score Torres.

Add all those up and it proved fatal.

Nice job by Colton Brewer last night.

The losses of Rodon, Severino and Montas have hurt so far. Jhony Brito (2-0) has been great in filling in, but the Yanks are 0-4 in the games started by Clarke Schmidt and Domingo German. Meanwhile they are 6-0 in games started by Brito, Gerrit Cole and Nestor Cortes.

Cole starts tonight.

Torres 2 hits (double and triple)
Stanton 2-run double.

German 3+ IP, 2 R, 1 ER (his own error), 2 H, 5 W, 0 K. 87 pitches in 3+ IP. 5.87

Hamilton (L, 0-1) 2 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 3 W, 3 K. 3.18

MLB has been going ga-ga over Tampa Bay starting 10-0 (and that means the Yanks are 4 games back). Now the Rays have a good team, and yes, in most of their games, the Rays have been destroying their opponents, but you couldn’t have gift wrapped a nicer schedule for the Rays to start the season with. The Tigers, Nationals and A’s? All three of them could lose 100 or more games this year. The praise for what Tampa Bay has done so far has been a bit overblown. Kudos to them for getting off to a 10-0 start but let us keep things in perspective.

Game #9. Judge hits 2 HR in Yanks’ 5-3 win.

Aaron Judge hit 2 HR, and Franchy Cordero added another as the Yankees (6-3) beat Baltimore 6-3 on Easter Sunday.

Giancarlo Stanton got an RBI single in the first inning to start the scoring.

Judge hit his first HR of the day to straightaway center to make it 2-0 in the third inning. Cordero hit a 2-run HR to make it 4-0 in the top of the fifth.

The Orioles struck back with two runs in the bottom of the sixth.

Judge’s second HR of the game, and fourth of the season, made the score 5-2 in the top of the eighth. A little more to the left and the Great wall of Baltimore would have kept it in play, but he got it just to the right of where the wall juts back in.

A Baltimore HR by Adley Rutschman closed it to 5-3 in the bottom of the eighth but the Yanks closed it out from there.

Judge 3 hits, 2 solo HR (4)
Rizzo 2 hits, and was robbed of a HR.
Stanton RBI single.
Cordero 2 hits, 2 RBI. 2-run HR (2)

A side note; C Hobie Landrith, the first player selected by the Mets in the expansion draft for the Mets’ inaugural season of 1962, died a few days ago at the age of 93.
