Interesting development in the home run race.

Minnesota had a home run taken away, when their game with Cleveland was rained out in the third inning.

The Yankees however, are still homerless through almost 11 innings tonight.

5th straight series in which the Yankees have dropped the opening game. They came back to win the previous 4.

No homers for either the Yankees or Minnesota tonight, so the count remains 280-279, but the Twins now have 3 games in hand, the rest of the way (it will be back to 2 after their doubleheader tomorrow).

Really sloppy, disappointing game tonight. Home advantage on the line and Lyons loses the game. Who?? Tough night for DJLM in the field. Yanks did nothing at the plate all game. 5 run inning had some bloops. 2 hits over last 8 innings.

My two cents, but I think Ottavino was wrong about DJ covering first. Pitcher needs to be there, but hesitated and didn’t help himself. He seemed more concerned with complaining.

Also, as for defense, Torres has been pretty shaky lately, and in big spots. He often doesn’t get in front of grounders, and his backhand attempts as he’s falling backwards are just not working. He’s had a great year and at such a young age, but I’d love to see him fix this part of his game.

Yankee defense had been poor all year. I hope it doesn't bite us in the post season.

yankee outfield defense.
did not gardner get the most putouts per chances award last year?
in a recent tv chart, tauchman & #99 plus 2 red sox outfielders were highlited as the best 4 al defensive outfielders.

Minnesota hit one homer in the first game of their day-night doubleheader with Cleveland today, so Gardner's home run in the 4th puts the Yankees back up, 281-280.

I saw a similar list based on defensive runs saved.

game 150.
yanks sticks destroy have not team.
another good yankee starter outing.
5 getty goners.
mr mvp - 4 hits, run scored.
the speedster - comeback yankee of year - 2 getty goners, double, 5 rbis.
deep does not carry down to the Scranton slingers
mr post season roster - hr, double, 2 bb, 3 runs.
one of the deepest offensive team of all time.
even 3rd stringers ford, higgy, Estrada contributed.
my weak complaint - next to not being able to bunt, who is their base running coach?
