The Yankees hoped to bounce back after losing the first game of this four game set against the Cleveland Indians. However, the Yankees were unable to solve Carlos Carrasco, sending them to a 7-3 loss at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York.
The Yankees first scored in the bottom of the fourth on a RBI single by Greg Bird. In the eighth, Alex Rodriguez hit a RBI single and a run scored on an error off the bat of Bird.
Masahiro Tanaka went six innings, giving up four runs on seven hits and striking out three. Chasen Shreve pitched a scoreless inning, Nick Rumbelow pitched a scoreless inning and Justin Wilson gave up three runs on four hits in an inning of work.
— The Yankees return to the stadium tomorrow where they’ll honor Jorge Posada prior to the game. Then Luis Severino will take the mound, hoping to give the Yankees a win. First pitch is at 1:05 p.m. and the game will air on the YES Network.
