Yankees Lose to Blue Jays as Sonny Gray Falters Again

21 April, 2018, 14:05 | Author: Norman Carr
  • Yankees overcome more defensive blunders to beat Blue Jays, 4-3

Following up his clunker of a performance in a 6-3 loss to Boston last week, Gray was tagged for five earned runs over 3.1 innings to bloat his four-start ERA to 8.27. He gave up six runs over three innings (18.00 ERA) in the start where Sanchez caught him.

Cessa, who was set to take Sabathia's turn in the rotation until the rain in Detroit, suffered his oblique injury while pitching in Tuesday night's loss to the Marlins.

Starting pitcher Sonny Gray entered the fourth inning with the Yankees up by two runs over the Toronto Blue Jays, but that changed quickly when Gray gave up three runs on four hits. While moving down in the order appears to be the logical choice at this point, Jesse Spector of Locked On Yankees believes that Boone should consider moving Stanton up to the No. 2 spot. Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton broke a 50 at-bat homerless slump with his fourth shot of the season, a drive that put NY ahead 4-2 in the third inning. Two timely groundouts later, a 90 miles per hour fastball would trickle away off the glove of Gary Sanchez for a passed ball, scoring Maile, trimming the Yankee lead to 2-1.


He went 1-for-3 against the Blue Jays, driving in a run when he beat out an infield single. That was the case again in third inning when he hammered a 1-1 fastball from Gray to the biggest part of the ballpark in left-centre field for his second of the season. Unfortunately, his start to the 2018 campaign has made him look like a complete joke to the Yankees fanbase around the globe.

Lourdes impressed the Blue Jays during his first 12 games of the minor league season, hitting 17 for 49 and was third in the league in RBIs (11) and hits. Marco Estrada gets the ball for the Jays. Justin Smoak is 1 for 4 against Montgomery, while Josh Donaldson is 0 for 2, and Kevin Pillar is 1 for 3. The shot ended a homer-less streak of 50 at-bats for Stanton. His walk rate of 6.0 per nine innings is almost double the career-high of 3.2 he posted last season. The Yankees are looking good at the plate, averaging 5.53 runs, good for fifth in the Majors. The team has been unable to secure a shutout, placing them tied for dead last in the league. He improved to 4-0 in NY in his first start in nine days. Morales hadn't played since suffering a right hamstring strain in Baltimore on April 9, but he returned with his second multi-hit game of the season, including a looping RBI double down the left-field line. The Blue Jays have an over/under record of 7-9-2.

2-8 in Montgomery's last 10 starts following a Quality Start in his previous appearance. He surrendered two runs, both of them unearned, before Chad Green replaced him in the fifth. He should consider working alongside teammate, Aaron Judge who is leading the team in multiple categories, in an effort to revive his mediocre start to the season.
