Talk about an annoying game.

MLB: New York Yankees at Texas Rangers Shane Roper-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees did not make for a fun Saturday night. The Bombers got blown out by the Rangers by a score of 9-4. We’ll have a full recap tomorrow morning. In the meantime, here are some highlights:

Winner of the Game

Aaron Judge hit a triple! It happened in the first inning, and the camera angle made it look like he sent one 440+ feet. Instead it fell in front of the wall and Judge made it to third base. That marked his first triple since June 2017.

Didi Gregorius also gets a ton of credit for clearing the bases in the ninth inning, bringing the Yankees right back into it.

In-betweener of the Game

Luis Severino had a brutal first inning. Consider the breakdown:

Severino bounced back, however, and pitched two more innings. He struck out four and threw 72 total pitches. It could have been a disaster, but Sevy did okay.

Loser of the Game

Luis Cessa and Nestor Cortes Jr. blew the game open in the sixth inning. Cessa struggled and loaded the bases, then Cortes allowed a grand slam to Rougned Odor. Bleh. Please don’t let them make the postseason roster.

Honorable Mention: Luke Voit, who is utterly lost at the plate, went 0-for-3 with a hit-by-pitch.
