The Yankees concluded what is likely their last MLB game in Buffalo, and the sooner they get out of town the better. Aside from one night where the Bombers busted out the bats, this series was all Blue Jays, and tonight was no exception. Toronto took the series finale 4-1, and the Yankees really only had one opportunity to catch up.
Winners of the Game
Congratulation to Gio Urshela and Luke Voit, for being the only Yankees to get multiple hits tonight. Urshela also had the only RBI of the night, a base knock to second base that scored Aaron Hicks. Other than that, the offense was stagnant once again. It’s a bizarre ending to a weird series for the Yankees, who exploded one night but otherwise were contained at every corner.
Loser of the Game
I don’t think anyone will be happier to be leaving Buffalo than Adam Ottavino. The reliever had his biggest implosion of his season here earlier in the year, and he got into another jam tonight in the sixth inning after taking over for Jordan Montgomery. Ottavino allowed three hits to his first four batters faced, and gave up two runs — one of which was inherited from Montgomery.
