Goose eggs reared their ugly heads again in the Bronx on Friday night.
On a lackluster night on the offense, the Yankees lost his 4–0 loss to the Blue Jays at the stadium.
Kevin Gaussman became the latest pitcher to round out the Yankees. The Yankees had his third shutout in the last six games and his fifth in the last two weeks. Gaussmann said he had only four hits in seven innings, and he had only one runner on second base all night.
Yankees (73-47) lost 14th time in history Their lead in the AL East that day was a season-high 15 and 1/2 games, but after Friday night the Blue Jays (64-54) cut it to eight games. – Lowest since June 13th.
In the last 10 games, the Yankees have just 19 runs. Not recorded. Eight of those runs were Wednesday's wild comeback wins. That game is just a moment on the radar for a team that has otherwise struggled hard at the plate.
Not even Aaron Judge, who went 8-20 on the night in his career with Gaussman, could outsmart the Yankees. AL MVP favorites have gone 0-for-2 on the walks, and he's 2-for-23 in his last seven games in a now-rare off-week, but he's not the only Yankee in that group.
Oswald his Cabrera gave the Yankees their best moment of the night on the first pitch of the game when they committed the home run robbery. As Lourdes Gurriel Jr. smashed Jameson's Tyllon fastball into right field, Cabrera returned to the wall and used all of his 5-foot-10 build to pull back with a leaping grab.
The Blue Jays then got to Tyrone in his third inning to take a 1–0 lead. Whit Merrifield led off with a single and moved to third on Cavan Biggio's double before scoring to shortstop on Gurriel's groundout.
Teoscar Hernandez made his game 3-0 in the fifth inning, hitting a fastball to center with a two-run homer. After Josh Donaldson's two-out single in the first inning, Gaussman retired for his 10th straight, before Graber his Torres singled to lead off his fifth inning. . However, Torres was quickly erased when Isiah Kiner-Falefa grounded in a double play.
The Blue Jays knocked out Tyrone in the sixth inning. Vladimir Guerrero, Jr. led off with a hard double to right field, and Alejandro Kirk singled to put runners in the corner.
Lou Trivino came out of the bullpen and played his best for a Yankee, holding the deficit to his 3-0. Trivino had Hernandez pop up, Beau Bichette struck out, and Matt Chapman grounded.
In the ninth inning, Aroldis Chapman walked back-to-back hitters. 9 pitches for the second time in 3 games. Ron cleaned up the mess by letting his Marinaccio limit the damage to only sacrifice flies, loading the bases with one out but making it 4–0.
