About Yesterday Afternoon: BAL 17, NYY 5

There is no way around it. That was an ugly game from the start.


Luis Gil, who has been stellar this season struggled mightily and then the Yankees found themselves trailing early.


By the end of the second inning, the Yankees were in a hole they would never dig themselves out of, while Baltimore shelled New York's pitching for 19 hits on the day.


Quick Stats -

Luis Gil: Lasted only 1.1 innings and gave up seven runs on eight hits and two walks.


Bryan Baker: Throwing 1.1 innings of relief, the Orioles' pitcher picked up his first win of the year when starter Cole Irvin couldn't get out of the fifth inning.


Ryan Mountcastle: 3-6 with 3 runs scored, 4 RBIs and a walk.


Adley Rutschman and Gunnar Henderson: Both went 3-5 with 3 runs scored.


Player(s) of the Game -

Aaron Judge was the only player with multiple hits for the Yankees. He went 2-3 with three RBIs and a run scored.


Notable Performances -

Tommy Kahnle was the only Yankees pitcher to throw a scoreless inning. He gave up just one hit and struck out two.


Better to Forget -

This game entirely.


My Take -

There isn't a whole lot to say about a game like this if you are a Yankee fan. Losses like this are better put in the rearview mirror quickly - and hopefully with a win tonight. Still here are a few notes:


Jose Trevino has pitched two innings this year, but I don't think he's going to be making any permanent moves to that part of the battery. He was the eighth pitcher for the Yankees yesterday.


Luis Gil picked up his second loss of the season with the other coming back on April 15th. He's had a solid run and I expect he will bounce back in his next outing.


The Orioles are not to be ignored. They are an exciting and very good team. I think the Yankees are a better team, but they certainly weren't yesterday. The Yankees now only lead the Orioles by half a game in the AL East.


If there is one big positive to take away from the game it's that Aaron Judge seems to be fine after getting hit in the hand the other day.


Next Up -

The Yankees welcome the Atlanta Braves to the Bronx. Carlos Rodon will take the ball for New York and try to get the Yankees back on track. He is 9-3 with a 3.28 ERA. Meanwhile, Chris Sale will be on the mound for the Braves. He is 9-2 with a 2.98 ERA. He is holding opposing hitters to a .211 average this season, has 99 Ks, and has only issued 5 walks. First pitch is at 7:05pm.

With fans like that I can now see why the Colt’s left Baltimore in the middle of the night to find refuge in my home state of Indiana 🥴

The tankings were equally despicable, but only the Astros cheated. They are the more deplorable organization.

"Scattering The Ashes has all the feels. Paul Russell Semendinger's debut novel taps into every emotion. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll reexamine those relationships that give your life meaning." — Don Burke, writer at The New York Post

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
