The Yankees finally beat a team over .500 yesterday, but weren’t able to keep that momentum going today. The offense showed up late, attempted to rally, but simply ran out of innings to work with. We’ll have a full recap up in a bit. Here are some highlights in the meantime.
Winner of the Game
J.A. Happ didn’t have his best stuff today. He gave up a couple of home runs, and was tagged for four total runs before he was pulled from the game in the sixth inning. It could have been a lot worse, though. With two on in the fourth, Jonathan Schoop hit a ball that appeared to be going over the short porch. Cameron Maybin came through in a big way to take away the potential home run:
Honorable mention: Gary Sanchez jacked his eleventh home run of the season, and has only played in 19 games. Remarkable.
Loser of the Game
The offense mustered just two hits off of Jake Odorizzi through the first six innings of the game. He seems to have their number for whatever reason. Sadly, Luke Voit’s 42-game on-base streak came to an end today, too. It was a great run. Tomorrow’s a good day to start a new one.
Honorable Mention: Miguel Andujar made two errors—one throwing and one fielding—in his first game back.
