Yankees offense struggles again with Sonny Gray on mound

Gray has been one of the best pitchers in baseball over the last few months. The Yankees hold the first wild-card at 77-65. The only two that were said to be workable were Dodger Stadium in LA and Citi Field. Beneath the turbine roar of the Delta Shuttle, with a September breeze off Flushing Bay? The real issue here is that this is becoming a trend in Sonny Gray's starts. For a while, anyway.

"Our plan right now is to fly home after Wednesday's game", Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg told MLB Network ( via the Boston Herald ) on Monday. Then Rays shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria hit the homer he barely missed hitting a little less than 24 hours earlier.

Mama said there'd be days like this, but the loss leaves a sting on a team that is now forced to win the rubber game this afternoon to achieve their fourth consecutive series win. "I just got beat there". "You've got to be ready from, I guess, the third inning on".

Yankees: LHP Jaime Garcia is 0-2 in five starts since being traded from Minnesota to the Yankees. The New York Yankees give Tuesday's start at the Tampa Bay Rays to right hander Sonny Gray. "It didn't feel like we're the home team", Rays reliever Steve Cishek said. "But over the long haul, if you pitch like that, it's going to work out really well for everyone involved".

Girardi was telling that to reporters during his postgame news conference, but he was probably saying it as much to convince himself of the same thing.

Hechavarria finished a home run short of the cycle in a 5-1 loss Monday night.

Not only did Gray put the Yankees in a great position to win, but the day after Girardi had to torch both Chad Green and David Robertson, Gray also spared the bullpen - something the manager definitely appreciates with the way he burns through his relief corps. Those six batters have combined for 149 homers this season.

Judge is slashing.273/.410/.576 with a.409 wOBA, 41 home runs and 90 RBI through 139 games in 2017. numberFire's models project him to bat.246 while adding another 4 home runs and 10 RBI in 72 plate appearances over the remainder of the season.

Sabathia didn't factor into the decision last Tuesday after surrendering five runs over 5 1/3 innings as the Yankees fell 7-6 to the Orioles in Baltimore.

It was more than enough to win a game, but Gray was saddled with a loss as his offense mustered one run in a 2-1 defeat.

Close your eyes, and Flushing was the Bronx, the soundtrack transported for the Yankees' trip across town.

Citi Field was more than half full Tuesday night, and probably 99.99 percent of the 21,024 fans were Yankees fans, and most were loud and rowdy Yankees fans.

Hey, fans, don't forget to post your comments about this story, or anything Yankees on the Yanks Go Yard Facebook page where all Yankees fans get together. "No matter how it happens".

"Anytime you lose, it's tough to swallow", Gray said.

For Gray, however, the disappointment is becoming too familiar.
