Yankees fall to Reds 5-3

Yankees @ Reds
FINAL: Reds 5, Yankees 3
WIN: Tim Adleman (2-1, 4.44 ERA)
LOSS: CC Sabathia (2-2, 5.77 ERA)

The Yankees had a chance to go for the series sweep against the Cincinnati Reds, but unfortunately CC Sabathia put the Yankees in an early hole they couldn’t climb out of. Sabathia’s ineffectiveness in the second inning resulted in the Yankees losing 5-3 at Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati, Ohio.

The Yankees scored in the top of the first on a solo-shot by Gary Sanchez. In the second, Didi Gregorius hit a solo-home run and in the fourth, Gregorius hit a RBI single.

Sabathia went six innings giving up five runs on seven hits while striking out two. Dellin Betances pitched a scoreless seventh and Chad Green pitched a scoreless eighth.

What’s Next?

— The Yankees are off on Wednesday, but they return to the stadium on Thursday as they face the Houston Astros in a four game set. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m. and the game will air on the YES Network.

    At what point do the Yanks give up on CC, I know it's way to early for that and he will be given every opportunity to turn this around, but his ineffectiveness is worrisome. The Yanks have a chance to make this a special year given how the rest of the staff has turned things around and with this division being so tough every game can make a difference. So even though we have the utmost respect for CC, maybe it's time for Cessa or Green in the near future to get a chance, and use CC as a lefty specialist.

    It has reached the point where I am now surprised the Yanks did not mount a come back to win.

    Got my wish and watched Mr Green pitch. Looked pretty good, dialing it up to 95-96 on the fastball. Looked strong, maybe could have gotten the ball a little dirty here and there better but all in all looked good.. CC however didn't again and it's starting to be a red flag. That's about 3-4 in a row and has me thinking of the CC of a couple of years ago. He needs to pick it up. The 'Stros in town and they're playing pretty good baseball this year. With some familiar faces, should be a good four game set
