The Bronx Tales: A week of polar opposites. Two big wins verse the Mets followed by a loss A' series
I'm rarely kept speechless after watching a game, but staying up past midnight to watch the Yanks lose like that was dumbfounding.
I'm going to keep this one short, because I am tired, but the Yankees are the most up-and-down baseball team that has ever existed, and you can't prove me otherwise right now.
Before the weekend started, the Yankees accumulated a big win over Alek Manoah and the Blue Jays. They swept the Mets and got on Scherzer. And the rinsed the A's, 13-4.
It then came tumbling after back-to-back losses. 14 innings of 1 hit baseball against the worst team in all of baseball. Per Katie Sharp, after last night's loss, Yankees now have 12 losses when leading in the 9th inning or later since the start of last season. That's the most in MLB. They have 7 games with 2 hits or fewer this season, the most in MLB.
Lack of offense, sloppy play, headaches. Onto the Angels series.
