Kansas City 6, NYY 2

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

Sure hurts to lose when Montgomery gives you a start like that -- 6.2 innings with just one run on two hits. And then the bullpen, which has been so great most of the time, blows it. All things considered though, probably more good news here than bad. ...

NYY 4, Kansas City 2

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

With Tanaka in total meltdown and Sabathia being totally unpredictable, Michael Pineda is rapidly becoming the "ace" of this staff. He had a bad first start this season, but since then he's given up three or fewer earned runs in eight straight starts. And the last four of ...

NYY 3, Tampa Bay 2

Monday, May 22nd, 2017

Turns out "Good" CC showed up for this one, and it was certainly fortunate for the Yankees, as the Rays' Chris Archer along with their bullpen made the Yankee offense look like a bunch of little leaguers. The heart of the order -- Holliday, Castro, and Judge -- struck ...

Tampa Bay 9, NYY 5

Sunday, May 21st, 2017

You have to believe there's something physically wrong with Tanaka. That's two horrible starts in a row, and he's now given up seven home runs over those 4.2 innings. Last year he averages just 1.0 HRs per nine innings. Hello, disabled list.So now we've got to hope ...

Tampa Bay 5, NYY 4

Saturday, May 20th, 2017

Tough loss -- this one was easily winnable. Adam Warren gave up three runs, but that all started with three straight hits by Tampa Bay batters on pretty good pitches -- all were well out of the strike zone, low and away. Just bad luck or extremely good ...

Kansas City 5, NYY 1

Friday, May 19th, 2017

What a performance by the Royals' Danny Duffy. The Yankees have been shut out by a starting pitcher only three times so far this year, and Duffy was the first one to do it for seven innings. As they say, sometimes you just have to tip your hat ...

NYY 11, Kansas City 7

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

Now that's an impressive win! Jason Vargas came into the game with a 1.01 ERA, best in the AL. And the Baby Bombers promptly tagged him for six runs in just four innings. And as is becoming the norm for this team, the production came from all ...

NYY 7, Kansas City 1

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

Nice bounce back from that ugly Astros series. And to be fair, Kansas City just swept the Orioles and had won six of their last seven coming into the Yankee series, so even though they're below .500 they are playing pretty good ball right now. So how the ...

Houston 10, NYY 7

Monday, May 15th, 2017

Well, that was certainly ugly. With the Yankees needing to win both games of this double-header to gain a series split, the starting pitchers, Severino and Tanaka, gave them all of 4 innings combined while allowing 11 runs. Had it not been for a big 6-run seventh inning ...
