Yankees commit five errors in 4-2 to loss to Rangers


The Yankees as a team had their worst game defensively in six years (since 2007) and Shane Greene had the worst game defensively in 27 years (since 1988), resulting in the Yankees falling to the Rangers in a 4-2 loss at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York.

The Yankees were able to get on the board first with a SAC Fly and RBI by Carlos Beltran, scoring Derek Jeter. The Yankees later added a second run in the fourth inning on a Jacoby Ellsbury home run.

Shane Greene didn’t have an awful start in the box score, but he did allow four runs on five hits, striking out four and committing three errors, being the last pitcher to commit three errors in a game since Tommy John in 1988. Matt Thornton was responsible for two of Greene’s runners scoring, giving up two RBI singles and not recording an out. David Huff has been a pleasant surprise in the Yankees bullpen, going two scoreless inningsĀ and striking out three.

What’s Next?

— The Yankees attempt to take the second game of this three game set and they’ll do so by sending Chase Whitley to the mound. The Rangers will counter with Nick Martinez, a pitcher the Yankees have never seen before. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m. and the game will air on My9.
