There was no complete loss on Friday night.
Masahiro Tanaka (Masahiro Tanaka) looked like his October version and threw out five suspensions to provide the necessary motivation for the Yankees to start.
That is the positive end. The Yankees’ usual strong bat couldn’t solve the deep bullpen of the Rays and fell 1-0 to start the four games at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Adam Ottavino’s wildness is different. The right-hander faced two of his first three batsmen in the eighth inning, and his wild swing moved the forward run to third, laying the foundation for Michael Perez’s sacrifice flight .
The Yankees (9-4) only made two hits and were homeless for the first time this season. Chaz Roe entered the final six victories and retired from the Yankees as ninth. Gleyber Torres broke into the final and flew to the midfielder ford, currently in a state of slipping 24-0. He is not the only American struggling. At the end of July, Giancarlo Stanton (Giancarlo Stanton) shot 2 goals, and Aaron Hicks (Aaron Hicks) reached .1
After starting 8-1, the Yankees dropped three-quarters. But, this time, starting to pitch is not a problem, just like recently.
In the second outing this year, Mr. Tanaka performed well, retiring the last 13 batsmen he faced, repelling 15 of the 16 batsmen in total. Only Yandy Diaz met the right-handed in the first single game. Of his 59 pitches, 44 are on strike. He often leads in qualifying, hitting five shots and not hitting a combo in five innings.
At the same time, the Yankees could not make any offense. They were not hit until DJ LeMahieu’s single ranked sixth among the relievers Pete Fairbanks. Blake Snell received no hits in the first three games, but was lifted after throwing 59 pitches. After undergoing elbow surgery in July last year, the 2018 Cy Young Award winners are still raising their pitch.
The Yankees do have a chance. In the seventh quarter, they didn’t hit any bases, but Gary Sanchez went on strike and continued his shaky season. In eighth place, Mike Tauchman led with doubles, but he was forced to push LeMahieu’s ground ball to third place and was eliminated.
