Yankees Drop Series to Colorado Rockies
The New York Yankees had a shot against one of the worst teams in baseball, and were swept. On Wednesday, the Yankees lost the second game of a 2-game series against the Colorado Rockies 6-3.
Starter Ivan Nova had a very sub-par performance as he gave up 10 hits in just five innings, surrendering five earned runs. Nova gave up a 2-run home run to Rockies slugger Nolan Arenado in Colorado's big fifth inning in which they got to the Yankees starter for four runs.
"We didn't pitch well here," manager Joe Girardi said. "That's the bottom line."
The Yankees bats were unable to get to Rockies starter Chad Bettis. Didi Gregorius kept up his hot bat, but that was basically it. New York failed to string together enough hits in order to help out their starting pitcher.
The Yankees now head to Minnesota to play another one of the worst teams in baseball in the Twins. C.C. Sabathia takes the bump for the Yanks as they look to turn things around and win the games that they should. The Yankees will face Twins starter Kyle Gibson who is 0-4 with a 6.49 ERA this season.
