Yankees Lose In Extras
The New York Yankees lost another tough game last night to the Oakland A's. After getting a decent outing from Michael Pineda (who oddly enough has been a bit of a bright spot thus far with his performance) the Yankees gave up a pair of hits in the 11th inning that led to the A's scoring that much needed run that ended up being the game-winner as Oakland won 3-2 in 11 innings.
Mark Canha had the winning single in the 11th inning that scored Jed Lowrie.
"I played in the minor leagues for four years, and I got sick of that really fast. So, honestly, I'm just happy to be in the major leagues," said Canha.
Canha, who actually played in the minors for five years, was batting .083 as he stepped up to the plate in the 11th. Johnny Barbato hung a breaking-ball that led to Canha's first RBI of the season.
The Yankees once again failed to get the offense they needed against a team they are superior than. New York had two runners caught stealing and another picked off first-base.
Last night marked the first time the Yankees and Red Sox lost home games in extra innings on the same night since August 22nd, 1976.
Nathan Eovaldi (0-1) takes the mound on Wednesday night against Kendall Graveman (0-1) as the Yankees look to get back in the win column.
