This series with the Reds felt like it might be a nice respite after a stressful series in Boston. The four-game set with the Red Sox featured multiple topsy-turvy games, with the final two contests featuring some highly-frustrating blown leads and late losses. Instead, the Yankees treated us to another crushing defeat, with the lowly Reds storming back in a stunning ninth inning. The Bombers will look to end this surprising three-game skid tonight with Luis Severino on the mound.
