Wanting to complain about the recent pitiful launches of Yankee pitchers and rattle your lungs at Fenway Park when the Yankees suffered a three-game defeat was a tremendous improvement.
The Yankees with the first place still lead the Rays with 8 ¹ / ₂ games in the AL East and the Red Sox with nine lost five of their last eight games.
In these eight games – ahead of Sunday's 9-6 win – Yankee starters were 1-5 with two non-decisions and a whopping 13.78 ERA. They allowed 59 hits, 10 walks and hit two batters in 32 innings. Ten of those hits were Homer.
The pitching ills do not stop at the starters.
"At Bullpen we also had our fights," Zack Britton said about the high-priced pen at times, it did not expect the Yankees' financial commitment and was without a right-handed Dellin Betances all season. "Come in and hold the leads or keep the game close. We can do better than we can.
Considering that the Yankees reliefs are in the first four months of the season with an ERA of 3.90, they have done better in the first four months of the season than in recent times.
Close at 4pm On Wednesday, GM Brian Cashman was asked about his pen.
"Working from all angles," he wrote in a text on Monday.
In the last eight games, the Bullpen scored, without the inning of catcher Austin Romine, in a 3- 19 defeat to the Red Sox on Thursday night , a 4.91 ERA, posted 44 hits and went 19 in 36 ² / ₃ innings. That's a whopping 63 base runners who offer too many chances to score.
The biggest offender was All-Star Converer Aroldis Chapman. In his last eight games, Chapman has used three out of six chances, has run nine times, scored eight goals in 7 ² / ₃ innings and scored an 8.22 ERA. When Chapman is out of the race, much of a drop in speed is felt, but on Sunday night, he beat 99 miles an hour with four of the 13 fastballs he threw. On Wednesday against the twins in Minnesota Chapmans Fastball reached a speed of 100 km / h. Nine walks in 7² / ₃ innings are far too many and it was a nip to Mookie Betts to kick off ninth inning Sunday, which helped the Red Sox shorten a lead of five Yankees to three.
Adam Ottavino gave In the last twelve appearances in which the Batters hit .286 against him, the hits rose by 10 and went five times in 8 ² / ₃ innings. Britton's numbers in his last nine games are good (10 goals, seven goals in 7 ² / ₃ innings), but he ran two fights on the eighth Sunday night to load the bases.
According to Britton, Tommy Kahnle has lifted off all the others in the pen.
"Tommy casts absolutely incredible. He was our best ball down there last week, "Britton said about the right-handed with heat in the mid-'90s and a bugs-bunny substitution." He was huge, has lengthened innings against left and right. "
The Figures support Britton's praise as Kahnle has scored four goals, one earned run, 15 hits and two goals in the last eleven games.
"We can do better, be more consistent," Britton said of a pen that might be until Wednesday afternoon gets help or not.
