Yankees bullpen can't hold lead late against Rays

The Yankees were unable to hold a late lead against the Rays on Friday as they were defeated 11-5 in what seemed like another win for the bombers.

After jumping out to an early 4-0 start, the Rays kept chipping away before taking a 6-5 lead in the seventh inning. In the very next inning, the Rays put up a crooked five spot in the bottom of the eighth inning. From that point on, the game was out of reach for the Yankees.

Hiroki Kuroda pitched well for the Yankees but picked up the no decision.

The Yankees and Rays will continue their four-game set tomorrow.

Sabathia, Yanks' beat Price in opener

The Yankees were able to defeat the Rays 10-2 in the battle of the ace's game, which featured the Yankees C.C. Sabathia and the Rays David Price.

Sabathia clearly out pitched Price, who struggled all night long. From the first batter of the game, it felt like it would go the Yankees way tonight as Jacoby Ellsbury hit a high chopper to first base for a single.

The Yankee offense poured it after home runs from Soriano, McCann, and Solarte. The Yankees collected 16 hits in the game.

The Yankees and Rays will continue their four game set tomorrow night.

Yanks' sweep double header with 2-0 win over Cubs

The Yankees were able to sweep the day-night double header today against the Cubs after shutting them out in both games.

The Yankees will be on the road to begin a four game set with the Rays starting tomorrow.

Tanaka, Yanks' shut out Cubs in first game

The Yankees took the first game of the split admission double header against the Cubs on Wednesday after defeating them 3-0.

Masahiro Tanaka pitched an absolute gem today by striking out ten batters in eight innings of work. Tanaka allowed only two hits, in which they were two bunt singles. Although it was frigid in the Bronx, Tanaka had all of his pitches working today, including his prized splitter.

The Yankees and Cubs will play the second game of the double header tonight.

Yanks' defeat Red Sox 3-2, take series

The Yankees were able to take three games out of four against their rivals, the Red Sox, after defeating them 3-2 on Sunday.

Ivan Nova pitched excellent to earn his first win of the season. Nova had most of his pitches working, especially his big breaking curve ball. He worked into and out of jams all night and got a big ovation when he walked off the mound.

The Yankee offense was powered by Carlos Beltran, who hit a go-ahead two-run home run on a hanging curveball from Felix Doubront.

The Yankees will enjoy an off-day tomorrow before beginning a two game set with the Cubs.

Five homers put Yankees past Sox' 7-4

The Yankees were able to defeat the Red Sox 7-4 on Saturday after blasting five home runs in the game.

Kuroda had most of his pitches working as he kept the Red Sox hitters off-balance throughout the game. He struck out five batters, but walked three in six and a third innings of work. He allowed four earned runs in the game.

Carlos Beltran, Brian McCann, Alfonso Soriano and Kelly Johnson all hit home runs in their 7-4 win.

Yankees lose close game against O's 5-4

The Yankees were unable to take the series against the Orioles tonight as they were defeated 5-4 in a close game.

Masahiro Tanaka was impressive again tonight and if it wasn't for one hanging splitter, he would have pitched a gem. Tanaka allowed one three runs, in which they came from a three-run home run. He struck out a caree high ten batters tonight. 

The Yankee offense dug out of a early 3-0 hole to tie the game at three, but after the Orioles scored two in the ninth, the Yankees fell just short with just one in the ninth. 

The Yankees will begin a four game set with the Red Sox tomorrow night. 

Yanks' blown out by Orioles 14-5


The Yankees were defeated by the Orioles 14-5 today and this was obviously their worst loss of the season.

Ivan Nova started and he struggled right from the game by allowing three runs in the first inning. Things would get worse from there as he departed after allowing seven runs. This is his second start of the season and he hopes to forget this one.

The Yankee offense showed signs of life throughout the game, but when they got back into it, the Yankee pitching would give up more runs.

The Yankees hope to forget this game and move on to the finale tomorrow night.

Yankees defeat Orioles 4-2 in home opener


The Yankees opened up Yankee Stadium for the first time in 2014 today and presented it with a 4-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles.

He got himself into some trouble in the seventh inning, but Matt Thorton and David Phelps came on to clean up the mess.

The Yankee offense was effective today. As a team they scored four runs on eight hits. Jacoby Ellsbury, Kelly Johnson, and Yangervis Solarte all contributed with RBI's in the win. Derek Jeter grounded into a double play to score Solarte in the third inning.

Blue Jays100003000490

The Yankees took two-out-of-three against the Blue Jays in their three game set as they defeated them 6-4 today behind ace, C.C. Sabathia.

Sabathia looked much better than he did in Houston, and if it wasn't for his rocky sixth inning, then this outing would have been a very quality start.

The Yankee offense came out swinging today as they scored three early runs before Sabathia even threw a pitch.

Brett Gardner hit the Yankees first home run of the 2014 season with his two-run shot down the right field line in the fourth inning.

David Robertson came on to pitch the 9th inning and shut down the Blue Jays to collect his second save of the young season.

Blue Jays01000003x480

The Yankees were unable to stretch their win streak to three games as they were defeated by the Blue Jays 4-0.

Michael Pineda made his first official start of his Yankee career today and he pitched very well. Despite taking the loss, he had a lot of velocity on his fastball and his pitches moved well. He allowed only one earned run in his outing also.

The Yankee offense was silent as they couldn't even score a run in the game. They had their chances, but failed to capitalize. This Yankee offense is promising, but some days they just cannot get it done.

The Yankees and Blue Jays will complete their three-game set tomorrow.
