With the loss they remained 1 ½ games behind AL East-leading Toronto, which lost 4-2 to Cleveland on Monday.
The Yankees have sent first baseman Mark Teixeira back to New York for further tests on his bruised right shin.
Yes, Girardi has agita. But its source is the Jays of Toronto — not some dingbat from Houston.
Midway through their most lopsided home loss in more than six years, the New York Yankees were yelling at Houston outfielder Carlos Gomez from the dugout.
Girardi should make that decision now. It’s what is best for both the Yanks and Sabathia.
Girardi was ejected while the Bombers were trying to mount a rally against Cleveland closer Cody Allen on Thursday night, a comeback that fell short with a 3-2 loss.
Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia says he “flipped out” and made a “bad decision” for getting involved in a shouting match outside a Toronto nightclub over the weekend.
“We definitely took a punch this weekend, and good teams punch back,” Alex Rodriguez said. “For us, it’s all about how we respond that matters.”
Luis Severino impressed players on both sides during his much-anticipated major league debut. He just didn’t get much support from those in his own dugout.
There’s something happening here. What it is ain’t exactly clear.
Alex Rodriguez is bringing his pursuit of the 3,000-hit milestone to his hometown, where it may be put on hold.
Between Collins adopting, and then abandoning, a six-man rotation and Girardi skipping Pineda over his scheduled start Sunday, it seems both managers have become afflicted with a case of the crazies.
CC Sabathia pitched six sharp innings before being ejected for arguing balls and strikes and Brett Gardner hit a tiebreaking, three-run homer Sunday.
Joe Girardi’s endorsement of a rule change was supported by Royals manager Ned Yost before the teams played at Yankee Stadium.
CC Sabathia is stuck in the longest losing streak of his career, and his offense isn’t doing a whole lot to help him snap out of it.
