Any momentum the Yankees had from the last three games immediately vanished tonight as they were stifled by Lance Lynn and the St. Louis Cardinals in a 6-0 loss at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri.
The Yankees were unable to score any runs and only managed five hits: one for Brett Gardner, Jacoby Ellsbury, Brian Roberts, Brian McCann and Brendan Ryan. Roberts was the only Yankee to reach third base.
David Phelps started the game for the Yankees, going six innings while giving up five runs (three earned) on eight hits with two walks and five strikeouts. Alfredo Aceves followed Phelps, pitching two innings while giving up a home run on two hits. Aceves has now given up four home runs and nine earned runs in his last 8.1 innings.
