When Masahiro Tanaka seems off, he probably is, and that usually means it's not always a win for the Yankees. I think that was established last night.
Not alot to say here. The Yankees have been pretty good as of late and last night they could not pull out a win. Remember when I told you in THE BIG PAYBACK that they'd score 1 run tonight? I was joking, but the reality is, many times there are situations where teams rally hard for a few days scoring double digits and then they just look tired the next day. It happens, no biggie. Last night the Yankees only got 2 across the plate.
Masahiro Tanaka went 6 innings, gave up 9 hits and 4 runs. He struck out 3.
The Yankee run scoring went like this:
In the second, Carlos Beltran homered and then Jacoby Ellsbury singled knocking in Didi Gregorius. That was it for the Yanks. They had 8 hits on the night, they left 5 on base and were 1-4 with runners in scoring position. Truthfully, it wasn't a horrible night, they just didn't have their ace feeling exceptionally well. You know what? It happens. I refuse to get crazy about it.
Final: Rangers 5 - Yankees 2
