Domingo German roughed up in Yankees’ loss to the Cardinals

It was a day to forget for the majority of the pitching staff.

The Yankees have a two-game losing streak in spring training, everybody panic! All kidding aside, it was an afternoon to forget in Jupiter. The Bombers’ pitching staff got rocked to the tune of 11 runs, keeping the offense out of reach.

For a full breakdown of the game, here’s the box score. In the meantime, let’s cover three takeaways.

1. Domingo German had his first rough outing of the spring. The right-hander labored through 3.2 innings of work, which seems more important than the results. He couldn’t find anything to get batters out. German allowed five runs on six hits, three of them coming by the home run ball. Marcel Ozuna launched a homer in the third inning, while Dexter Fowler took German deep twice — once in the first inning and another in the second. Bad starts happen, especially in spring training. Hopefully that’s all this was.

2. Gleyber Torres and Ryan Lavarnway combined for most of the Yankees’ action this afternoon. The Yankees second baseman lined a two-run double in the third inning to put the Yankees on the board. The team’s third run of the afternoon happened an inning later, when Lavarnway singled home Gio Urshela. Torres and Lavarnway — now that’s an example of the up-the-middle production the Yankees are so used to.

3. It wouldn’t be a spring training game without someone on the Yankees getting banged up. Today that dubious honor belonged to Clint Frazier, who fouled a ball off his leg in the fifth inning. Frazier didn’t return in the sixth, but it sounds like he is okay:

The Yankees are in action tomorrow night against the Phillies. First pitch will be at 6:35 PM, and YES will broadcast the game.
