ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – The Yankees were unlikely to return to the game tonight: Marwin Gonzalez’s two-run home game came in ninth, taking them away.
The explosion took them exactly where they had hoped when the inning began when Aaron Judge reached the plate during the draw.
Hitting Joey Gallo against Colin Poche on the left, Judge sent the volleyball to the left but broke the bat during the game as their return was lost to Tropicana Field 5: 4.
“Every time he steps to the plate, you expect something to happen,” Gonzalez said of Judge. “He’s the best player right now.”
But Judge was unable to use his magic on Tuesday.
“It simply came to our notice then [of the bat breaking]”Gonzalez said.” When we saw the ball fly, we waited for us to leave [out]. Everyone else hits the ball like this, it’s a bloop over a shortstop. Unfortunately, it didn’t go out. “
The Yankees were in that spot as Nestor Cortes got hit hard for the second time in their last three starts, as the left-hander promised three homemen at the top of the season, all on the cutters.
This was Yankees’ second loss in three games. Of the last 12 games, they have still dropped in just two and three out of 20, dropping 50:18 in the season.
Isaac Paredes – who hit three housemates at night – and Harold Ramirez went behind Cortes at the first end.
The Yankees tied the game with a double single from DJ LeMahieu.
But Cortes’ tough night continued in the third, when Paredes took him deep again to lead Rays 3: 2.
The left had promised only six home teams in its 12 starts before Tuesday and dropped out fifth after Yandy Diaz’s single – and Paredes met again.
Clarke Schmidt entered and suffered the same fate as Cortes. Paredes went home a third time in the night, standing 5: 2.
A number of Rays mitigators silenced the Yankee lineup as Tampa Bay used seven throws to win only a second time in eight games as Rays tried to hold back the Red Sox to finish third.
The Yankees threatened eighth when LeMahieu and Josh Donaldson called Luke Raley before Anthony Rizzo jumped out to the left.
And the inning ended when Stanton smashed a hard hit to the right of Taylor Walls, which the shortman was able to reach and turn into a double.
Cortes has his first bug of the season.
The Twins reached him four races on June 8 with a 4 ¹ / ₃ innings before bouncing back against the Ray in the Bronx last Wednesday.
On Tuesday, however, for the second time in less than a week, and for the third time since May 26, Tampa Bay was struck around Cortes – and not only the homes were hit hard.
Diaz smoked the lining to the left in the third and the single in the fifth.
Cortes said the fact that Rays had seen him so often in recent weeks was “definitely in my mind.”
“It probably gave them a small advantage, but if I had a better location, I would have done the job,” Cortes said.
Aaron Boone believed that Rays was sometimes sold out while looking for a cutter, adding that he didn’t let Cortes stay in the game to get his stuff back because he had no other beginner experience. .
Cortes left for the first time this season with an ERA north of 2.00 (2.31) and the Yankees lost for the second time in Cortes’ last eight games.
Ron Marinaccio, the third Yankee thrower of the night, hit Paredest in the seventh on two pitches, but that was a change of 83 miles per hour.
