Sabathia’s Solid, Offense Sputters, Yanks Lose

By

on

Bronx, NY – On Father’s Day Sunday, the New York Yankees offense sputtered to a 3-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. For a team loaded with power, they went 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position. What they lacked in scoring was completed was more than compensated by RHP CC Sabathia’s 10-strikeout solid performance.

Following Sunday’s loss, the Yanks three-game winning streak came to a disappointing end. In their six-game homestand, the Pinstripes went 4-2. Overall, New York went 13-4 in their last 17 games. If the Yankees have any chance of rebounding from Sunday’s loss, they will have to travel to Washington where they will face the Nationals in a double-header. The first game is a resumption of their suspended game from May 15. Thirty minutes following the suspended game, the Yanks will play the second game of the day.

Until the next time, I bid you adieu. Tune in, find out, Pinstripes all the way!
