THE YANKEE WIN THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN
Sometimes in baseball... it's frustrating. After all, the Blue Jays have been pretty hot since the trade deadline and they're bound to get cold soon... but when? The Yankees? We do a nice mini-run, and then we stumble, but we stumble at the wrong time. At least, that's how I see it.
Well, the Yankees of course needed a win today, but they fell short. Meanwhile, the Toronto Blue Jays won. That allowed the Yankees to drop further out of first place. It wasn't supposed to happen that way considering Nathan Eovaldi was on the mound. But the Rays beat him... that's it.
Eovaldi went 5.1 innings allowing 5 hits and 3 runs. He struck out 7. The most impressive part was Eovaldi kept the Yankees in the game, and then the pen of all kinds of pitchers did the same. After Eovaldi held the Rays to 3 runs, Shreve, Warren, Rumbelow, Pazos and Andrew Bailey kept them scoreless. Pretty incredible.
The Yankee run scoring went like this:
In the 5th, with the score 3, nothing Rays, Didi Gregorius doubled knocking in John Ryan Murphy. Then, in that same inning it was Brett Gardner grounding out, but in the process, Didi scored. That was it ladies and gentlemen. We left 9 on base, and were 0-5 with runners in scoring position.
We can't have that...we just can't.
Final: Rays 3 - Yankees 2
