The Yankees squared off against one of the worst teams in baseball–but Michael Pineda didn’t have anything working for him as the Yankees fell to the Philadelphia Phillies 11-8 at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York.
The Yankees got on the board in the bottom of the first on a Brian McCann SAC fly and a Carlos Beltran RBI double. Brett Gardner hit a three-run homer in the fourth inning, McCann hit a solo shot in the seventh inning and Garrett Jones hit a two-run double in the ninth inning.
Michael Pineda started the game for the Yankees, giving up eight runs in 3.1 innings of work. Chris Capuano gave up two runs in 2.2 innings of work, Diego Moreno pitched a scoreless inning, Chasen Shreve pitched a scoreless inning and Branden Pinder gave up a run on two hits in an inning of work.
— The Yankees will try to split the series against the Phillies by sending CC Sabathia to the mound. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m. and the game will air on the YES Network.
