The New York Yankees could not solve Brandon Morrow on Sunday as they fell to the Toronto Blue Jays 3-0. Aaron Lind continued to kill the Yankees yet again as he hit two solo home runs in the game. Freddy Garcia was roughed up for 3 runs in just 4 2/3 innings pitched.

Was this start by Garcia just another sign of things to come for the Yankees down the stretch?

Freddy Garcia went 4 2/3 innings pitched giving up 5 hits, 3 runs, walking 4 and striking out 2. The walks and his pitch count are what caused his short outing. The Blue Jays made Garcia work and were able to knock him out of the game fairly early.

This could be anĀ ominous sign of things to come for the Yanks as both Bartolo Colon and Freddy Garcia are pitching into an amount of innings they haven’t thrown in a long time. If this is the case, then you are down to the four remaining Yankee starters of CC, AJ, Hughes, and Nova, and that would be a pretty good playoff rotation. Ideally, if Garcia would have the energy to be in the mix, he would be a good veteran presence to keep the Yankees in the game, which is what he did for the Yanks on Sunday, though the offense could not do anything against Morrow.

A bright spot for the Yanks on Sunday was Eduardo Nunez who went 3-4 in the game. He accounted for 3 out of the 5 Yankee hits. But again the game was dominated by Brandon Morrow who went 8 innings giving up 4 hits, no runs, walking 1 and striking out 8 Yankees. Frank Francisco got the save in the game.

The Yankees next play the Minnesota Twins for a game before playing host to the Tampa Bay Rays in a crucial series more so for Tampa as they are chasing down the Red Sox for the American League Wild Card.
