Yankees 1, Astros 2: Bats go quiet in quick stop in Houston

Yankees 1, Astros 2: Bats go quiet in quick stop in Houston

Photo by Bob Levey/ Luis Severino gave the Yankees a good outing, but they couldn’t take advantage and dropped the first game of their road trip. Despite getting a series split back in Yankee Stadium, the Yankees spent most of the four-game set against the Astros trailing. One of the losses was a no-hitter and the two wins required two remarkable late-inning comebacks. Wins are wins, and the box score doesn’t have pictures. If they did though, the pictures wouldn’t be the most flattering. Less than a week later, the Yankees took on Houston again, and the Astros’...

NYY @ HOU: Luis Severino vs. Luis Garcia

Photo by Bob Levey/ The Yankees are in Houston for a quick little one-game stop. Yesterday, the Yankees wrapped up their homestand on a high, beating the Athletics to complete a sweep. Tonight, they’re headed back on the road, starting it with a weird one-game stop in Houston. The reason for the mini one-game “series” is that these teams were set to play in April on the originally 2022 schedule, which had to be shifted around due to the owners’ lockout that delayed the season by a week. As a result, they’re set to play Houston today and then return on July...

Today on Pinstripe Alley - 6/30/22

Photo by Bob Levey/ And now, a one-game interlude at the Juice Box in Houston. Aside from some oddball frames here and there, the Yankees did their jobs over the last three games against the A’s, sweeping away the worst team in baseball. Soon to come is a series in Cleveland with a Guardians team that looks a lot better than the middling squad that finished under .500 last year. But first is a coda of sorts to last weekend’s Astros series, as today, the two clubs will make up one of the postponed games from MLB’s delayed Opening Week of 2022. Luis Severino will...

NYY vs. HOU: Luis Severino vs. Justin Verlander

Set Number: X162984 TK1 Two old Yankees and Astros foes square off on a Friday night in the Bronx. What could the Yankees possibly do to follow up the thrill of last night’s victory? They had been hitless in the first until Aaron Hicks delivered a stunning three-run homer to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth, and on the eve of earning himself a $19 million payday for 2022, Aaron Judge walked it off with a 3-0 missile into the left-field corner. Give the Yankees’ constant battles against the Astros since 2015, that had to feel it good. One of the men who...

Yankees 9, Blue Jays 10: Bullpen meltdown snaps winning streak

Yankees 9, Blue Jays 10: Bullpen meltdown snaps winning streak

The Yankees were set up with a big lead, but the bullpen blew the game. The Yankees entered today’s game flying high, seeking a sweep of their division rivals and their 10th win in a row. Although Luis Severino had strikeout stuff and the offense was able to pounce on Yusei Kikuchi, the bullpen simply couldn’t hold the 8-3 lead and allowed Toronto to sneak away with one win in the series. After DJ LeMahieu flew out to right to begin the game, Aaron Judge worked a walk off of Kikuchi. Josh Donaldson was then hit by a pitch and slammed his bat into the dirt in annoyance,...

The Yankees simply can’t lose right now, and today, they’re seeking a sweep of the preseason division favorites, their 10th win in a row, and their 50th win overall — an almost unprecedented mark on Father’s Day. Luis Severino makes the start for New York, after being pushed back from his Thursday start with COVID-like symptoms that briefly landed him on the IL. His last start was over a week ago against the Cubs, when he struck out 10 over 6 innings...

Luis Severino has exceeded expectations in 2022

Photo by Adam Hunger/ The old Luis Severino that we know and love is back, and it’s awesome to see. The Yankees’ starting rotation is currently mowing through the American League East. Gerrit Cole is doing Gerrit Cole things, Nestor Cortes is the league’s top breakout story, at least as far as AL starters are concerned, Jameson Taillon is outperforming his spot in the rotation, and Jordan Montgomery quietly has one of the top 10 ERAs in the AL. Before the 2022 campaign began, there was genuine concern that was not totally unfounded about the capability of this...

NYY News: Sevy set for Sunday

Photo by Adam Hunger/ Severino back and starting Sunday; Judge’s biggest improvement from previous years; Montgomery and the rebirth of the sinker; Rizzo stepping into leadership role ESPN | Associated Press: Luis Severino gave the Yankees and their fans quite a scare when he was scratched from his Thursday night start and placed on the COVID-19 IL. Thankfully, it appeared it was an overnight bug, as he is feeling better and was reinstated from the IL in time to join the Yankees for the series in Toronto. And according to manager Aaron Boone through Lindsey Adler of...

Yankees 2, Rays 1: Rizzo’s walk-off clinches Johnny Wholestaff sweep

Photo by Sarah Stier/ Clarke Schmidt, Ryan Weber, and more quieted the Rays for the bulk of the night, and Rizzo homered to win it. The Yankees were in a bind on Thursday when they learned that expected starter Luis Severino would have to hit the COVID-IL. So they had to turn to Clarke Schmidt for the start and call up Ryan Weber from Triple-A Scranton to take Severino’s roster spot, with an appearance highly likely. They also didn’t have Clay Holmes or Wandy Peralta available to pitch out of the bullpen after each reliever threw in the first two games of this...

Photo by Mary DeCicco/MLB Photos via Schmidt is subbing for an ill Luis Severino, helping the Yankees aim for a sweep. The Yankees thought that they would get to throw the capable Luis Severino out on the mound to go for the sweep of the division rival Rays tonight, but unfortunately, Sevy’s sick. He was placed on the COVID-IL this afternoon after experiencing symptoms yesterday, so instead, the Yankees will ask Clarke Schmidt to fill in. Schmidt is probably the go-to long reliever in the Yankees’ bullpen, but the starting pitching has been so excellent in 2022...

The Yankees had to scratch Luis Severino before Thursday’s series finale against the Rays at Yankee Stadium, because of illness. Clarke Schmidt got the call to make the emergency spot start.

Yankees place Severino on COVID-IL, call up Weber

Photo by Adam Hunger/ Clarke Schmidt will start tonight against the Rays in Sevy’s place. The Yankees had expected to hand the ball for tonight’s game against the Rays to Luis Severino, hoping for a sweep. They’ll still be aiming for three wins in a row over Tampa, but Sevy won’t be a part of the proceedings. This afternoon, the Yankees announced that Severino was placed on the COVID-IL and that reliever Ryan Weber would take his roster spot. Clarke Schmidt will get the start tonight. It has to be a bit of a disappointment for Severino, as he was in the middle...

Photo by Dustin Satloff/ Don’t look now, but the Yankees are another winning streak, this one of the six-game variety. Their most recent wins, against the Rays, have understandably been a bit tighter than the laughers they put together against Chicago, but nonetheless, the march continues on. They’ll look to complete the sweep of Tampa tonight with Luis Severino on the mound. We’ve got another loaded day on the site ahead of the game, starting with Josh’s look at the benefits of the Yankees’ load management strategies. In light of Aaron Judge’s superb...

NYY vs. CHC: Luis Severino vs Wade Miley

Photo by Sarah Stier/ Yankees open up an interleague series against the Cubs. After a wild end to that series in Minnesota, the Yankees come home for a three-game interleague set against the Cubs over the weekend. The opening act of this series will pin a couple of very different starting pitchers. Luis Severino takes the ball for the Yankees against the veteran southpaw Wade Miley. It’s a battle of power against finesse. Severino has really taken a step forward in his last four starts, in which he’s thrown 26.1 innings allowing only five earned runs, and four of...
