Yankees lose third straight

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Jul 30, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

The Yankees comeback fell one run short tonight, and they were left with their third straight loss at Yankee Stadium. The second-place Orioles escaped with a 5-4 win, holding on after Eric Chavez and Ichiro Suzuki hit back-to-back homers to pull the Yankees within a run in the bottom of the seventh. The Yankees never got the final run they needed to complete the rally and have now lost eight of their past 11. The Yankees took an early lead on Chavez’s RBI single in the second inning, but the Orioles answered right back with a solo homer in the third. Back-to-back sacrifice flies put the Orioles in front 3-1 in the fifth, then they build breathing room with two more runs in the seventh. Freddy Garcia allowed three runs through six innings.

    Should have had Ibanez bunt

  2. Carlos July 30th, 2012 at 10:13 pm

    Team is so un-clutch.

  3. NYY fan in NH July 30th, 2012 at 10:13 pm

    another 1 run loss and pathetic offensive showing. At least Ichiro went deep. Tough times ahead I believe.

  4. ZMAN July 30th, 2012 at 10:14 pm

    Cashman is on the clock, 18 hours to get the team some bats. Can;t go into the postseason with this group of dinosaurs trying to put every ball in the seats.

  5. blake July 30th, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    They seriously can’t score unless they hit the ball out of the ballpark….Cashman and Co. have to realize this is a problem…..they really need to address it….got a few hours Cash…tick tock

  6. Captain Clutch July 30th, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    It’s funny how garbage on other teams can always hit a sac fly or pull the ball to get the runner over. The Yanks all stars can never ever do it. It’s so hard to watch this already and the Yanks have been like this for years.

  7. GoldGlove9486 July 30th, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    We have to get to the postseason first. Red Sox are heating up. Yanks heading in the VERY wrong direction. Now we wait to hear about Tex.

  8. JM July 30th, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    Let’s just hope Tex is not seriously hurt….

  9. Curt aint worth a Schilling July 30th, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    This team is just not good enough. With other teams improving via trades, we must do the same, or else…

  10. Bobby Murcer July 30th, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    Let’s look at the bright side. Runner on second with nobody out.
    They couldn’t score him, but at least they advanced him to third.

    As Seinfeld would say:
    “That’s a shame.”

    Tomorrow’s another day…

    ============
    Pierre or Victorino?

  13. Villa Nova-Ya July 30th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    I am not counting on even getting to the post season now that Tex is hurt. The hits just keep coming…the wrong kind of course.

  14. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 30th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    blake, which I wish we would see so many more bunt attempts.

    It didn’t help to have to go against Johnson. 30 saves and a WHIP off 1.12.

  15. DONNYBROOK July 30th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    I’m Not sure Ibanez Can bunt.

  16. bruceb July 30th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    And so it goes on…six one-run losses in the last 11 games. Yanks’ inability to play small ball means they can’t come back in close games. Did anyone really expect Martin to come through there? Everyone in the world knew he was going to throw inside. Everyone except Martin that is. Lead shrinking fast now and yet another injury to a key player. Not fun to watch.

  17. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 30th, 2012 at 10:18 pm

    Did we get feedback on Tex yet, Villa?

  18. Yankee Trader July 30th, 2012 at 10:18 pm

    Blake-

    Another injury.
    Another 1 run loss.
    Cashman hopefully is working the phone and pulls an all-nighter and gets the team some help.

  19. Captain Clutch July 30th, 2012 at 10:18 pm

    Oh great….

    Mark Feinsand?@BloggingBombers

    Teixeira left with a left wrist injury. Tests tomorrow. Girardi: “It’s a big concern… We’ll keep our fingers crossed.”

  20. DONNYBROOK July 30th, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    Consistently losing 1 run games speaks to managing. Girardi know Nothing about generating runs.

  21. Tabbert July 30th, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    I wouldn’t expect cashman to make any moves. And if he does, it wont be some prolific bat. This team is not really this bad… we are just in a big time funk. It happens.

  22. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 30th, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    Girardi called Tex a “big concern.” XRays tomorrow.

  23. ZMAN July 30th, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    Could Morneau be an option now? Can we stick him in the OF some too?

  24. Dill Pickler July 30th, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    Another game, another opportunity to come through in the clutch, another failure. The lineup where leadoff doubles goes to die once again whiffs their way to a clutchless loss.

    How many more years will it be before this team gets a walkoff win?

    We have ONE in the last two seasons. One walkoff win. That is very, very telling.

  25. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 30th, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    Look, all you can do is pitch in as a team and hold the course. The Yankees can do it.

    Of course I hope that Tex is good to go.

  26. Jerkface July 30th, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    Get Choo or Upton or Headley if Tex is going to be out.

  27. Carlo July 30th, 2012 at 10:21 pm

    They will do nothing tomorrow. They have a lineup that basically is jeter, cano, and 6/7 other guys with identical strengths and weaknesses.

    They don’t have a stopper in the rotation. They have 5 quality arms, none of which. Are guys u bet the farm on, especially not sabathia. Problematic.

  28. Captain Clutch July 30th, 2012 at 10:21 pm

    Meredith Marakovits?@M_Marakovits

    Teixeira will have tests (mri)on wrist… Girardi said there is definite concern… Keeping fingers crossed until they see results

  29. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 30th, 2012 at 10:21 pm

    “Could Morneau be an option now? Can we stick him in the OF some too?”

    Interesting. And boy could the timing be any tighter?

  30. yankeefeminista July 30th, 2012 at 10:21 pm

    No update on Teix until tomorrow.

    In 2011, Gardner batted .230/.322/.330 leading off.

  31. Villa Nova-Ya July 30th, 2012 at 10:21 pm

    Trisha -

    I know we don’t know the exact nature of the injury yet. Just feeling pretty low right now. It’s a slump. I know it’s slump. Just very very hard to watch right now.

    And you do have to wonder how much a team can take before it takes a real toll. So far, they’ve be pretty darn resilient.

  32. DONNYBROOK July 30th, 2012 at 10:21 pm

    IF, TEX is out, Morneau IS a definite trade target.

  33. Tabbert July 30th, 2012 at 10:22 pm

    Cubs 18-10 since rizzo came up. Rizzo, castro, soler…. bright future for the cubbies.

  34. Carlo July 30th, 2012 at 10:23 pm

    Not going to get an answer on tex. Not a straight one for sure. With deadline tomorrow, they will sugarcoat this injury until tomorrow post 3pm.

  35. Hassey July 30th, 2012 at 10:23 pm

    The good news is that they’ve still had a puncher’s chance in all these games…the bad news is that they’ve only had a puncher’s chance in all these games

  36. mick July 30th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    Joe’s not sure if he had an xray?
    thinks nothing showed?
    is this watergate?
    deadline approaches….

  37. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 30th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    Villa, Joe just said that if the Yanks had been getting pounded over the past 10 games he’d be a lot more concerned. He said that the fact they’ve been keeping them so close means that they’re going to start to win them.

    That actually does make sense. I always feel better after I hear what he has to say because the guy is practical and he is really alwats on the money in sense of reality. The guy has played, he has managed, and he knows the rhythm of a season and he knows his players.

  38. Curt aint worth a Schilling July 30th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    We’re not doing anything at the trade deadline.

  39. Yankee Trader July 30th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    X-Rays tomorrow? There’s an X-Ray machine in the clubhouse!

    JF-Why will Cashman get a replacement for Tex? He’ll just bring up one of his offseason signings-Branyan or Cust. :(

  40. Captain Clutch July 30th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    Cashman has to make a move to help the offense this year and the next couple of years. He has to stop ignoring the obvious. The middle of the order keeps getting shorter and shorter the last couple of years and it hasn’t been addressed. This isn’t the lineup from ’09 with clutch Damon and Matsui. Cashman better come up with a player by tomorrow and actually use some of his prospects and stop being a hoarder. Other GM’s make moves and Cashman continues to complain about prices.

  41. Yankee Trader July 30th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    New Post—->

  42. JM July 30th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    New thread >>>>>>>

  43. Jerkface July 30th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    In 2011, Gardner batted .230/.322/.330 leading off.

    Heavily skewed by his early season slump coming off the wrist injury from 2010. He of course hit .290 .412 .376 .789 batting 1st in 2010. and .304 .327 .457 .783 in 2009. He is good against righties, thats really most of the information you need. Any batting order split is going to be hindered by small sample size fluctuations.

  44. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 30th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    Oh Villa, I understand exactly how you feel. I just didn’t know if you had heard something about Tex on the radio or something before we heard it from Joe.

  45. Carlo July 30th, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    He got an x ray tonight. Girardi said it showed nothing, mri tomorrow. Forget it, they will lie anyway about the injury tonight with the deadline tomorrow.

  46. Carlo July 30th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    So losing close games is fine? I guess we’ll just crush our playoff opponents.

  47. Othello July 30th, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    This is not a play off team. Trade away top prospects for Upton. Don’t resign Grandrson and put Gardner in center, Upton in right and Ichiro in left. Trade for Cliff Lee too. This Garcia experiment is wearing thin. Finally Cash stop the over 35 theme it’s not working.
