Yankees Winning Streak Halted
Again for the Yankees, their offense was not clicking. Brett Gardner was one of two Yankee batters to have a multi-hit game, with two hits. He also scored the only two Yankee runs and hit his eighth triple of the year against Archer who was brilliant against the Yankees again. Chris Archer won against the Yankees again, his third win against them this season. The rookie knows how to keep the hitters off balance and uses it to his advantage. The Yankees need to figure this guy out because he isn't leaving the division anytime soon.
The Yankees have some task at hand over the next two days as they get the pleasure of facing David Price tomorrow night with CC Sabathia on the mound for the Bombers. It will be tough to score runs off Price if he pitches at even half of what he is capable of. Sabathia has to limit the damage which will be difficult because the Rays have owned him this year, and more than owned, they have hammered Sabathia in each and every start he has made against them this year.
