Yankees shut out by Cardinals in 6-0 loss

David Phelps 6

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.

What’s Next?

Hiroki Kuroda will take the mound against the St. Louis Cardinals in the series finale at Busch Stadium. Shelby Miller will pitch for the Cardinals as each team hopes for a series win. First pitch is at 8:15 p.m. and the game will air on the YES Network.

    And the slide has begun.

    They need a legit backup 1B for Teix. Not a guy who, before this season, had played only five games at 1B. On this road trip we've seen the limitations of Johnson at 1B, and not only that, he's only hitting .196.

  3. Robert Rufa says:

    I don't think Phelps is cut out to start.

      if he was playing for a different team, he might have gotten a greater shot as a starter…can't be easy trying to be jack of all trades, you become as they say, master of none…

  4. Phelps has been pretty good. He has a 3.38 ERA overall and a 3.18 ERA since they made him a starter. I hope they stick with him. He seems like he'll at least be a solid back of the rotation type. Besdies, with CC, Nova and Pineda out the Yankees can't really afford to take Phelps out of the rotation.
