We was swept by the Red Sox,” said Anthony Rizzo. It’s a magnet. This is definitely a low point in the season, but it’s all part of the ups and downs of a season in the major leagues.
Yankees’ offending concerns continue with Red Sox sweep
The Mets are presently 39-33, 12 games down of the first-place Rays.
Despite remaining in last place, the Red Sox can take pride in sweeping the Yankees for the first time in two seasons. The Yankees had little chance of winning thanks to the outstanding pitching of Brayan Bello and the strong offensive performance of Alex Verdugo. They never came close, managing just two hits at the end of the first inning.
The rest of the Yankees’ clubhouse probably shares Rizzo’s unhappiness, and observers are left wondering why the team’s crowded lineup is performing so poorly.
While a different conversation needs to be made about Luis Severino’s future with the club (he allowed 4 runs on 7 hits with 3 walks), the Yankees need more verve from their offence. It should go without saying that a lower hit total results in a lower win percentage.
On Tuesday, the Yankees will take on the Seattle Mariners in search of a much-needed win.
