COMING UP SHORT IN HOUSTON
We could have had a win. We probably should have... but the reality is, we didn't look like a very good team in Houston at all this series.
Michael Pineda looked great yesterday. He threw 8 innings, giving up 7 hits 3 runs, 2 of them earned and struck out 8. He was cruising. Here's the issue...
While Collin McHugh pitched similarly, the Astros were able to help their pitcher out. The Yankees scored 1 run and only had 2 hits all game. By the way, that run came in the 3rd when Brett Gardner singled to knock in Stephen Drew. That was it for the Yanks.
Not much more to say. Not a great series... now we move on to the Angels. We can do better.
Final: Astros 3 - Yankees 1
