Rockies Beat Yankees Again
The New York Yankees suffer another loss to a team they should beat last night as the Rockies doubled down to defeat the Bronx Bombers 8-4.
The Yankees have lost all three games against the Rockies this season and six of their last nine games overall.
"It's baseball, it's what we've been going through all year, inconsistency and it's frustrating for everyone in that room," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.
Ivan Nova turned in another poor start. He gave up two home runs to Charlie Blackmon, including one to lead off the game. Nova went just four innings, giving up six runs, five of them earned, and only struck out one batter.
Nolan Arenado added another home run to his league-leading total with a bomb off of Nick Goody in the 6th inning. The Yankees have now given up 43 hits to the Rockies in the three games they've played against each other this season.
Didi Gregorius kept his bat going as he had a pair of extra-base hits, but the Yankee offense has once again seemed to stall.
C.C. Sabathia takes the bump on Wednesday as the Yankees look to finally get a win against the Rockies as they start Jon Gray.
