Yanks lose momentum against Twins

The New York Yankees were looking to sweep the Minnesota Twins yesterday but may have gotten a little ahead of themselves as the Twins regrouped from two straight losses to defeat the Yankees 7-1 last night.

The Yankees have little time to dwell on the situation as they host the League Leading Texas Rangers for a four game series lasting through June 30th.

Starting for the Yankees will be Ivan Nova (5-5 5.18 ERA) who has had some control issues of late earning a 6.88 ERA with a .932 OPS…not a great stat to go up against a top hitting club like the Rangers.

The Rangers have called up Chi Chi Gonzalez to make his 2016 debut against the Yankees tonight, which will be his first meeting against .New York.

Yanks looking to end two game skid

The New York Yankees had hoped to get off to  a better start in this series against the Colorado Rockies but the Rockies came out swinging in the first and never looked back.  Charlie Blackmon led the game off with a home run blast that ricocheted off the right field foul pole and struck deep gold again in the 4th inning.

Rockies pitching kept the Yankees at bay with Chad Bettis going six innings and limited the Yankees to four runs.

“We made some mistakes tonight and yeah, it does bother me,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “When you make mistakes to a team that hits the ball out of the ballpark, a lot of times you’re going to lose.”

The Yankees have a chance to get even today at noon in this short two game series.  They will then concentrate on the Minnesota Twins coming in for a three game stand beginning Friday.

Yankees look for fresh start against Angels

Having lost two of three games against the Baltimore Orioles (32-23 1st AL East) last week, the New York Yankees (26-30 4th AL East) will look to get a fresh start when they host the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim beginning tonight at 6:05 at Yankee Stadium.

In the rubber game last night, the Orioles placed runners on first and second before mother nature called the game.  When it resumed, Francisco Pena singled to get on base, setting up Matt Weiters two out, two run single giving the Orioles a 3-1 lead for good.

CC Sabathia was spectacular in the loss, throwing 111 pitches in five innings before getting out of a jam by striking out Mark Trumbo with bases loaded.

“He battled,” said Yankees manager Joe Girardi of Sabathia. “He had to grind through getting us into the sixth inning. He threw a lot of pitches in the one inning — 37 pitches [in the third] — but I think he did a heck of a job.”

The Yankees kick off a four game series against the Angels of Los Angeles (26-30 4th AL West) beginning tonight at 6:05.  Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to grab yours today and help cheer on your New York Yankees!
