Yankees Bitten By D-Backs
The New York Yankees had a game to forget Monday night in Arizona against the D-Backs. The Bombers lost 12-2 after starting rookie Chad Green who gave up 4 earned runs on eight hits in four innings pitched.
"There is never a good time to have a game like this," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said
The D-Backs brought their 'A-game' Monday night as they totaled 15 hits; eight of which were for extra bases. Their slumping superstar Paul Goldschmidt hit a quick home run in his first at-bat to get the scoring started for the D-Backs and they didn't let up from there.
Jake Lamb added a 3-run homer of his own that gave the D-Backs the separation they needed to lock down the win.
"People say it a lot but I think that hitting is a little contagious," Lamb said. "Just to get a game like this, it's kind of like you can take a deep breath and go, `OK, we can hit."
The Yankees hope to bounce back against Zach Greinke who recently has been coming into his own.
