First Losing Streak of the Year

The Yankees were shut out by the Tigers today.  This was a very lopsided lost for the Yankees as they only had two hits on the day.   The pitching staff also gave up seven runs with five of those runs coming in the ninth inning to make it not a game.

Jorge Alcantara played third base when normally he is an outfield.  He had the best day with a hit in two plate appearances to go along with a walk.

Defensively this wasn’t a great day for Peter O’Brein.  He allowed a stolen base and had a pass ball.  Not what you want to see especially for a senior sign that got almost slot money.

The pitching was as bad as the hitting today.  Graham Stoneburner went two innings and allowed a hit and a unearned run.  He also struck out one without issuing a walk to go along with three groundballs to two air outs.

Coming in after Stoneburner was top pitching prospect on the team Jordan Cote.  He went four and two thirds innings today.  He struck out four guys to one walk.  He did allow four hits but only one unearned run.   Cote had five groundball outs to three air outs.  This was a very good game for Cote who has a 1.45 era in 18.2 innings.  He also has 17 strike outs to three walks which is very impressive for a kid’s first year out of high school.

Tomorrow the Yankees try to stop the losing streak at two when they play against the Tigers again this time at 10 am eastern time.
