TORONTO – The Yankees are finally struggling a bit. Check if they're dealing with tons of it all season. Just look at their injury list, which was filled with stars all season.
But three consecutive defeats are also a bit.
It's been a while.
The Yankees 12-7 The backlash against the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday night is the worst time since they played three games in Houston and then lost at home to the Chicagoers.
By Yanks, the home defeat tied on Sunday night with the defeat on Tuesday night in Toronto. They had not even lost two games in a row since losing two games on April 30 and May 1
Think about it.  That's a testament to how well the Yankees played without so many key players. They were only 10-10 when Aaron Judge came on the injury list to Giancarlo Stanton, Miguel Andujar, Didi Gregorius, Luis Severino and Dellin Betances. Now they are a bit nuts, but still have 38-22 and more than 1.5 games on the second-placed Tampa Bay Rays in the AL East.
But three defeats can turn into a full-fledged gaffe if the Yankees do not run aground If you're not careful, you'll have to change it soon.
What was the problem after so much consistency?
Here are six reasons why the Yankees lost three games in a row:
1. STARTING THE PITCH
It always starts with the pitching in baseball, and the Yankees were in that Season mostly pretty good in this department. In fact, they were very good, considering that the rotation has the fourth best ERA in the AL at 3.93, with Severino out all season, CC Sabathia twice in the IL and James Paxton once in the IL.
The Amis' last three games, the initial pitching, have failed them as Sabathia on Sunday, Masahiro Tanaka on Tuesday and Paxton on Wednesday have a combined ERA of 5.94 (16.2 IP, 11 runs) ,
Even though the entire season over four All-Star Betances were played at the IL and Chad Green spent a month working so long for him to stay out for a few weeks The Yankees Bullpen was probably the team's biggest strength in the first 60 games of the season.
Adam Ottavino, Tommy Kahnle, Zack Britton, Tommy Kahnle and Aroldis Chapman are their victors. If the Americans have a lead through five or six, those guys come in and it's usually a game over.
It was not Wednesday night when a 7-4 lead through 6 ½ innings became an ugly loss that was dimly lit by Britton, who was set on fire in eighth grade when freshman Vlad Guerrero felt like his father in the Hall of Fame by playing a low and inner sinker path over the fence in the left middle for a homer with three runs and a 9-7 Blue Jays lead.  During the three-game amis the bullpen became very small, so 12 runs, of which 10 were earned, are possible over 10.1 innings.
3. LUIS CESSA
The helper, who was one mile worst during the Yankees slide, was Cessa, who was lit in two nightmare excursion for seven runs over 1 1/3 innings ,
In the seventh inning, righty came 3-2 in the game on Sunday and turned it into an 8: 2 router by allowing five runs over two frames. On Wednesday, the Americans were still two runs in the game, as Cessa directly after Guerrero Homer entered. He then poured some gas into the fire immediately after he released one by allowing Homer to play Randal Grichuk and Brandon Drury. At this point, the Americans were done.
Cessa helped the Americans at the start of the season, but his ERA is at a very high 5.33. He has no options left, and the Americans would probably lose him if they put him out of disqualifications to take him to Triple-A, but this guy has been more cold than hot in his ability in the big leagues over the past few seasons. 19659002] Is Cessa a better alternative than David Hale or Chance Adams? Maybe, maybe not. It might be time to cut the cord at Cessa, which has never been reliable.
Who can forget about Clint Frazier's mishaps on Sunday? There were three botched games in the right field and he is fortunate that the official scorer only charged him with one mistake.
On Wednesday, the third baseman Gio Urshela had a field and throwing error, short-stop Gleyber Torres made a bad throw, which led to two inexperienced runs and the Amis finished their third three-error game of the season and the first since mid-term April.
The field of the Amis was pretty solid this year, but it definitely contributed to the first and third losses during their current break-in season.
. 5 GLEYBER TORRES
Torres did his part on Sunday by going 2-on-3 with an RBI, but his fingerprints were on the last two Amis defeats when he scored seven runners in the 0-against-7 Run stranded.
On Wednesday, Torres missed a chance to open the game in the fifth inning as he set out to the final with loaded bases after the Americans had taken three runs 4: 3.
6. CLUTCH HIT
The Americans had some big hits on Wednesday when they beat runners 4-on-9 in goalkeeping, but on Sunday night they were only 1-on-7 and up a terrible 1-on-7. Tuesday evening, 12 o'clock.
