Tag Archives: Wilson
The Yankees only got one hit in the game, a second-inning double by Giancarlo Stanton.
Jordan Montgomery gave up a solo HR in the first inning, and a two-run HR in the second. He settled down after that, but with the Yanks doing nothing offensively, that was enough damage against him for Seattle to win.
Wandy Peralta gave up a HR in the 8th for the final score of 4-0.
Montgomery (L, 3-4) 6 2/3 IP, 3 R, 4 H, 2 W, 9 K. 1 WP. Gave up 2 HR. 4.16
Wilson 1/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 0 K. 8.59
Peralta 1 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 0 W, 1 K. Gave up 1 HR. 5.26 (combined ERA SF/NYY)
I know Wilson has been bad this year, but why pull him after one batter, when he got that batter out?
This isn’t meant to be mean, but in any line of work, if someone isn’t doing the job, they have to go. They are released, let go, fired, terminated, use your own term.
Today, Saturday, Zack Britton begins a rehab assignment with AA Somerset. When he is ready to join the Yankees, the Yankees have to make room for him.
It’s becoming more and more apparent that the move that must be made at that time is to let Justin Wilson go.
One strike away from a 2-1 Yankees win, Wilson gave up a game-blowing 2-run HR and as a result, the Yankees (29-22, 3rd in AL East, 2 1/2 back) lost 3-2 to the Detroit Tigers in 10 innings.
Wilson’s ERA is now over 6. Terrible for a starter, much less a reliever.
The Yankees’ offense is to blame for this one as well. When your ace, Gerrit Cole, gives you six innings of one-run pitching, and you can’t support him and get him a win, well….
Cole is 6-2. The Yankees have lost all three of his no-decisions. When your ace has an ERA of 1.78, you should be better than 6-5 in the games he has started (right, Jacob DeGrom?).
Let’s just say that the Mets fired their hitting coaches. Here are some ugly numbers as we are almost at the 1/3rd mark of the season. The Yanks have a .231 batting average, 11th in the league. 11th in hits, 14th (next to last) in doubles, last in triples (2, one by Gardner, one by Wade). Next to last in stolen bases. 11th in slugging and total bases. 11th in sac flies. Amazingly the OPS+ is 98, just 2% below league average.
But you expected so much more from this offense, didn’t you? It’s been a frustrating offense to watch so far this season. Far too many Yankees aren’t even hitting .200. A lot of times four or five members in the lineup are below .200.
Not to beat a dead horse, but if the hitting is this bad, you can’t fire the whole team, and I am surprised the Yankees haven’t done anything with the hitting coaches so far.
If not for the pitching (1st in ERA, 3.18, 1st in least walks, 1st in most strikeouts), where would this team be? ERA+ 128 (28% above league average).
As for the game, Cole gave up three straight singles in the third inning and the Tigers took a 1-0 lead. Cole wasn’t dominant, but still held the Tigers at bay.
The Yankees tied it in the fifth when Rougned Odor hit his fifth HR of the season. He had four hits on the night.
But the Yankees were 0 for 10 with runners in scoring position, and it killed them.
In the top of the ninth, the Yanks had runners on first and third with one out. Both Giancarlo Stanton (just off the IL, but 0 for 5 with 4 strikeouts) and Aaron Judge struck out.
The Yankees went ahead 2-1 in the top of the tenth, but the run wasn’t earned, it was given to them. First off, that stupid ghost runner rule (I hate it) put Judge on second to start the inning. Gio Urshela struck out, and Judge moved to third on a groundout by Gleyber Torres. He scored on a passed ball.
Detroit got the ghost runner in the bottom of the tenth. Wilson got the first two guys out and got two strikes on Robbie Grossman. Then a pitch that looked like strike three but was called a ball. The next pitch was hit for a HR by Grossman and Detroit had a walkoff win.
A most disappointing loss.
LeMahieu 3 strikeouts. After .327 and last year’s .364, D.J. is only hitting .264 right now.
Stanton 0 for 5, struck out 4x.
Judge 2 hits
Odor 4 hits, solo HR (5)
Cole 6 IP, 1 R, 6 H, 1 W, 5 K. 1.78
Peralta 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 0 K. 4.96 (combined SF/NYY)
Green 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 1 K. 2.08
Chapman 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 1 K. 0.45
Wilson (L, 1-1; BS, 1) 2/3 IP, 2 R, 1 ER, 1 H, 0 W, 0 K. 6.08 Gave up walkoff HR.
The Yankees’ starters streak of scoreless innings ended at 37 1/3 when Kluber gave up a 2-run HR to the Blue Jays’ red-hot Vlad Guerrero, Jr. in the third inning.
Michael King replaced Kluber and gave up a HR to Lourdes Gurriel, Jr. in the top of the fourth to make it 3-0, Toronto.
An error by Gleyber Torres allowed the Blue Jays to get two unearned runs in the seventh off of Lucas Luetge.
Meanwhile, ex-Met Steven Matz was looking like Sandy Koufax out there, getting seven quick strikeouts on his way to ten. The Yankees still have too many hitters below the Mendoza line (.200) and on the interstate (meaning they are hitting in the .100s).
The Yanks got a run in the bottom of the seventh when Clint Frazier doubled and Kyle Higashioka singled him in.
Justin Wilson gave up a HR in the top of the ninth and it was 6-1, Toronto. You have to wonder about Wilson when Zack Britton returns. When Britton returns, someone has to go, and Luetge has pitched far better than Wilson so far.
The Yanks got a run in the bottom of the ninth when Rougned Odor walked and Kyle Higashioka doubled. Odor scored on an error on the play.
We’ll find out more today about Kluber. Hopefully it is nothing serious that requires a long IL stint.
Frazier 2 hits
Higashioka 2 hits, RBI
Kluber (L, 4-3) 3 IP, 2 R, 2 H, 3 W, 5 K. Gave up 1 HR. 3.04
KIng 3 IP, 1 R, 6 H, 1 W, 3 K. Gave up 1 HR. 2.29
Luetge 1 IP, 2 R, 0 ER, 3 H, 0 W, 2 K. 2.82
Cessa 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 0 K. 3.32
