The New York Yankees of the American Professional Baseball Major League (MLB) were unable to get out of a losing streak as they were caught in the sluggish pitching and hitting.
The Yankees메이저놀이터 knelt 2-6 in an away game against the 2023 MLB Minnesota Twins held at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA on the 26th (Korean time).
With this, the Yankees, who fell into the pit of three consecutive losses, took their 11th loss (13th win). Minnesota, who had three consecutive wins, is 14-10.
The first point was the Yankees’ share. At the beginning of the first inning, Aaron Judge’s left-handed hit and the opposing pitcher’s wild throw led to 2nd and 2nd base, and DJ Lemaheu hit an RBI, right-handed hit at the right time.
Minnesota, who had been silent, turned around at once in the bottom of the third. When leading hitter Michael Taylor took advantage of an error by the opposing shortstop and managed to get on base, Donovan Solano hit a double at the right time with an RBI. Carlos Correa then struck out, but the follow-up hitter, Jorge Polanco, hit a double at the right time with an RBI, bringing Solano home.
The Yankees, who became desperate, jumped on their luck in the top of the 5th inning and returned the game to the starting point. Aaron Hicks and Anthony Wolf’s consecutive hits led to one out, first and second base, and Judge’s third baseman’s ground ball overlapped the opponent’s error, and Hicks dug into the home.
However, Minnesota had no intention of leaving the atmosphere like this. He made the bottom of the 6th inning a big inning and ran away. As lead batter Polanco hit a double, Byron Buxton drew a two-run arch over the left fence. Even Trevor Lanark fired a two-run four in the middle of the second run on first base, which was connected by a hit by Ryan Jeffers.
The Yankees, who had a fire in their feet, tried to counterattack steadily for the rest of the inning, but no further scoring was heard. That’s how the Yankees had to face the bitter outcome of three straight losses.
Yankees starting pitcher Nestor Cortes (5 hits, 1 walk, 4 runs, 3 earned runs in 5 innings) suffered his first loss of the season (3 wins) with rather poor pitching. Wolf (2 hits in 4 at-bats) and Wally Calhoun (2 hits in 4 at-bats) created multi-hits, but were not strong enough to prevent the team from losing 3 times in a row.
Minnesota starting pitcher Joe Ryan threw 91 balls in 7 innings, 7 hits, 7 strikeouts, 2 runs, 1 earned run, and earned his 5th win (undefeated). Buxton (2 hits in 4 at-bats, 1 home run, 2 RBIs), Polanco (2 hits in 4 at-bats, 1 RBI), and Lanark (1 hit in 3 at-bats, 1 home run, 2 RBIs) also contributed to the team’s victory with strong hits.
