Yankees fall to Blue Jays 6-0


A day after the Yankees lost to the Blue Jays in extra innings, they came out hoping to tie the series at one game apiece. Unfortunately, the Yankees couldn’t provide any offense, sending the team to a 6-0 loss against the Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York,

Ivan Nova gave up four runs on four hits with six strikeouts in 5.1 innings pitched. Adam Warren retired two batters and Bryan Mitchell gave up two runs on three hits in three innings of work.

What’s Next?

— The Yankees will return to the stadium tomorrow with hopes of avoiding a series sweep. Masahiro Tanaka will start for the Yankees and Marco Estrada will start for the Blue Jays. First pitch is at 1:05 p.m. and the game will air on the YES Network.

    They are clearly hot.Sometimes it's not who you play but when you play them.Joe stayed with Nova one batter too long but you can't win with no runs.My only criticism of Joe G would be he tends to manage the name more than the situation.Nova couldn't find the plate so Smoak was just sitting on a strike and got one.All that bullpen and so thin at times=overworked.Need to find a way to balance all the work until we can get consistent length from a starter or two.Down the stretch it wil be Miller,then DBets& Shreve,then Warren&Wilson.That's 5 good, reliable arms.There's got to be a way to make that work.

      The problem is that the starters have not given consistent length in games all year and there is no reason to believe that they will magically figure it out now. Eovaldi might be the exception. Despite what the clowns at the YES network would have you believe, Ivan Nova isn't this great pitcher/potential ace. Good pitchers know how to get out of jams (like Price in the 4th inning), Nova frequently crumbles. I don't think the streaky-ness of the offense coupled with Girardi's inability to have the team play any kind of small ball will lead to us losing the division

    Toronto is hot and the Yanks are not

  3. Jack says:

    The Yanks became very vulnerable when Cashman did not get this team any players at the trade deadline as other teams did especially Toronto . Hal doesn't want to spend money and the Yankee tradition of always trying to get to the World Series is dead no matter how Cashman and Hal try to spin it

    Toronto revamped by moving a lot of their prospects…they are a better team but maybe for only this year…Yankees held onto their prospects and a guy like Severino could have been dealt but now we may get to see him pitch for the Yankees past 2020…that strategy I was all for…the Yankees are still in 1st place and they're there for a reason…whatever happens from this point on is hard to predict but the Yankees are having a good season and playing hard nosed baseball…i could not ask more from these players…even CC comes through with an excellent performance his last time out…this is a good team…keep the faith…

  5. Jack says:

    This team needs a lot of help. I am glad that after 5 innings , You have anointed Severino! I would have done just what Toronto did trade prospects for proven ballplayers any time! By the way Sabathia is done all the steaming in the world won't save him! Also the team that went out and improved themselves is that other New York team the METS!!!!

    • True yankee fan says:

      You're right about Sabathia. What sucks is when he has a great, fluke outing, all these people are going to say CC is back and then give him all the leeway in the world when he stinks up the joint for his next 6 starts.

    • hotdog says:

      a desperate team would have traded Severino…the Blue Jays may not get this chance again for 20 years so they went for it…they may still wind up in 3rd place…Yankees are in the hunt every year, we don't need to go all season after season, moving our top prospects, that would be insane…we would have no farm system at all…Derek Jeter, Jorge Posada, Mariano Rivera, Bernie Williams, Dellin Betances, Robinson Cano, Brett Gardner would have developed on other teams if we "went for it" every year…Daniel Norris was the Blue Jays top prospect and was traded along with 2 other lefty pitchers for David Price who is a 3 month rental…the only way that deal becomes worth it is if the Blue Jays win the world series and the chances of that happening according to Las Vegas odds is 16:1…Tulowitzki is a crapshoot and he didn't come cheap…he's on the DL as much as David Wright…the Yankees should have done more imo to round out the team but they did not need to move the kind of guys the Blue Jays did to win a division and a possible world series…we finally develop a solid farm system with several top prospects…moving any of these guys better be worth it and I don't see any 3 month rental that would have been worth Severino, Judge, Mateo or Sanchez…we missed out on longer term options because other teams outbid us in trade and/or what was being asked did not fit into the Yankees plans…we have only one regular position that would have been upgraded and that was 2nd base…no one's moving Gregorius and we're doing fine in the outfield…and Cole Hamels has a 5.93 era in 2 starts for the Rangers, welcome to the American League…it sucks watching Toronto creep up on the Yankees but i can't blame Cashman for wanting to keep his best talent instead of putting all his chips in one pot and "going for it" like Toronto has…

    Win today, take Monday off and head to Cleveland with an electrifying Severino on the mound. Win that game and the narrative will change.

    • True yankee fan says:

      Tanaka gives up a homerun to the very first Jays batter he faces…yea, that narrative is not going to change

      • True yankee fan says:

        My mistake, the second Jay, not the first….really wish there was an edit feature for previous posts

    It seems as if NY has fielded two teams this year—one gets your hopes up and the other dashes them. By now we should know better than to get excited by a hot streak because the Yankees haven't shown that they can sustain the combination of good pitching and timely hitting needed to finish in the money. And it's not just that they lose, it's the way they lose—embarrassing.

    If Cashman refused to trade away what he considered the Yankees' future, I'll support him on that. But he's got to figure out a way to shed the dead weight so it doesn't use up valuable roster space.

    • True yankee fan says:

      Dead weight = Stephen Drew. You knew we were doomed when we were threatening with 2 on, 2 out and he came to bat
