Yankees offense stopped lose too Royals
The Yankees lose to the Royals 6-1 too start off this 4 game set, the offense was disappointing and the pitching was especially bad. The bullpen left a lot to be desired.
The Yankees offense was completely horrible today the offense could only muster 4 hits and one run on a sac fly in the first inning. The only player with a really good game was Clint Frazier he continued his hot start to the season with 2 hits in 4 at bats which brought his season average to .347 he has been one of the best player on the Yanks. Hopefully the rest of the Yankee lineup can pick it up and get it going.
The pitching today wasn't all bad German wasn't dominate but he kept the Yankees in the game with 6 quality innings only allowing 3 runs and striking out 9. German has really proved that he can be a quality starter for the Yankees. What really hurt the Yankees was the bullpen tonight. Jonathan Holder let up 2 runs in less than an inning. Holder has had a tough start to the season with a 7 ERA to start the season. So the Yankee starting rotation has been solid but the bullpen needs some work.
The Royals got on the board first when Alex Gordon hit an RBI double to drive in Adalberto Mondesi which gave the Royals a 1-0 lead
The Yankees tied up the score in the home half of the first on a Gleyber Torres hit a sac fly scoring Judge.
The Royals took a 2-1 lead when Jorge Soler hit a solo home run.
The Royals added to the lead with another solo home run off the batt of Ryan O'Hearn making it a 3-1 Kansas City lead.
In the 7th inning Kansas City continued to build on their lead when Whit Merrifield hit an RBI double to put the Royals up 4-1. The Royals would add another run on Mondesi's sac fly. to put the Royals up 5-1.
The Royals go the final run in the 9th on another Mondesi sac fly.
The Yankees will play the Royals tomorrow at 7:05 PM ET as the Yanks look to bounce back.
