Yankees Lose Again To Mets, Look To Avoid Sweep Tonight
After spending the last two weeks at or near the top of the American League East, the New York Yankees have really gone and outdone themselves during this four-game losing streak. Last night, the Mets came into Yankee Stadium and didn't miss a beat from the previous two nights, taking out the Yankees by a score of 9-4.
However, the most embarrassing part would be the new low set by Yankees starting pitcher David Phelps. In the first inning of last night's loss, Phelps allowed 5 runs (only 4 of them earned) on 4 hits and 2 walks. The embarrassing part - Phelps was pulled from the game after only collecting 1 stinking out!
By the time the Yankees came to bat in the bottom of the 4th, the Mets already had an 8-0 lead and the game was pretty much over from there. However, a couple of positives were the performances of Brennan Boesch, who continues to play well since being called back up to replace Curtis Granderson on the roster, and Ivan Nova's 5-inning performance out of the bullpen (1 run on 5 hits, with 6 strikeouts and just 1 walk).
Tonight in the Bronx, it'll be Vidal Nuno looking to avoid a 4-game sweep from the Mets, as they'll send out Dillon Gee. Coverage starts with the Coors Light Yankee Pregame Show at 6:15, hosted by our very own Mike Lindsley, followed by the Yankees Radio Network broadcast at 6:30.
