James Paxton has to be better for playoff run

On another steamy afternoon (first pitch temp: 94 degrees) the Yankees looked listless and weren't able to bail Paxton out, despite hitting three homers.

Yankees fall to Rockies in series finale

Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports The Yanks failed to sweep the Rockies after poor outings by Paxton and the offense. The Yankees won the first two games of this three-game set against the Rockies, and came into Sunday in search of a sweep. James Paxton took the mound for New York, having recorded a quality start in each of his last three appearances. German Marquez started for Colorado, looking to rebound after allowing 11 runs in his pervious start. Charlie Blackmon blasted a leadoff homer into the Yankees’ bullpen to get the scoring started early for the Rockies. James Paxton has now...

James Paxton struggles as Yankees fall to Rockies

Paxton managed to put the Yankees back in the place where the homestand started when the All-Star break was over: looking like it needs a pitcher to make the starting rotation more dependable.

Photo by Mike Stobe/ Yankees fail to sweep. The Yankees had a chance to finish up this homestand with a three-game sweep of the Rockies, but failed to get the job done today. We’ll have a full recap up in a bit. Here are the highlights in the meantime: Winner of the Game Through the first five innings, the only Yankee with a hit to his name was DJ LeMahieu. He knocked his 14th home run of the season during the bottom of the first inning.

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports The Yankees will look to sweep the Rockies to finish the home stand. With a win today, the Yankees will complete a three-game sweep of the Rockies to finish up this 10 game homestand. James Paxton will be on the bump for this Sunday matinee. He is 5-4 with a 3.94 ERA on the year, and has recorded a quality start in his last three appearances. Brett Gardner was a late scratch in the lineup. Aaron Boone said Gardy is having some left knee soreness, but he’s not too concerned. Mike Tauchman will take his spot over in left field. After taking a pitch off...

Photo by Mike Stobe/ A Sunday-morning open thread. The Yankees have won five in a row, and they’re showing no signs of stopping. Just as the Red Sox buried the rest of the AL East midsummer last year, the Yankees are trying to ensure that the division is won in all but name as early as possible this season. They have a chance to sweep an overwhelmed Rockies team today, and to continue to move away from the Rays and Boston. The series wraps up this afternoon with James Paxton on the mound. The action kicks off at 1:05 EST. Fun Questions What's your favorite Disney movie? With both...

NYY vs. TB: CC Sabathia vs. Ryne Stanek

Photo by Michael Owens/ The Yankees will look to avenge Monday’s brutal loss. Monday’s game against the Rays almost went according to plan: James Paxton pitched well, the Yankees hit three home runs, and went into the ninth with a lead. After Travis d’Arnaud hit his third home run of the game and Aroldis Chapman blew the save, though, the Rays won 5-4 and closed the gap in the AL East to just five games. The Yankees will turn to CC Sabathia, to get things back on track tonight. CC has long excelled as a “stopper” after a crushing loss, and tonight’s a perfect night for him to...

Domingo German found his go-to pitch

Domingo German found his go-to pitch

You can credit the curveball for German’s success One the best aspects of covering the 2019 Yankees has been following Domingo German’s success. Before he got injured in the first half, he was essentially the Yankees’ most important player. With Luis Severino out, another pitcher on the staff had to step up and anchor the rotation. It wasn’t offseason acquisition James Paxton, but rather a suprise breakout in German. Not only did German find a way to lead the staff through a ridiculous stretch of injuries, but he did it while becoming one of the league’s best pitchers. Through...

Yankees drop series opener to Rays, 5-4

This might have been the worst loss of the season. James Paxton just can’t escape the first inning without allowing a run. This time, the uncharacteristic leadoff hitter Travis d’Arnaud took a pitch into the seats to begin the game. Paxton finished with a solid start, though, striking out a total of seven hitters while surrendering two runs in six innings of work. Besides two mistakes, Paxton was able to keep the game close, especially with great defensive plays supporting the southpaw. Aaron Boone came out during the top of the sixth to ask Paxton if he felt okay to stay in the game,...

Yankees Highlights: d’Arnaud out-slugs Encarnacion in brutal loss

Two homers from their imported slugger were not enough to save the Yankees from a shocking onslaught from Travis d’Arnaud. For a brief moment, it appeared the Yankees had snatched victory from the jaws of defeat. Yet just as quickly as they had seemed to finesse a dramatic win over their division rivals did the Rays flip the script. A solid James Paxton start and Edwin Encarnacion’s late-game heroics were all for naught after a blown save by Aroldis Chapman and a stunning three-homer game from Travis d’Arnaud left the Yankees with a deflating 5-4 loss in the Bronx. Winner of the...

James Paxton is on the mound to kick off a four-game set versus the Rays in the Bronx. The Yankees have started the second half on a positive note, as solid starting pitching and timely hitting led to a series win against the Toronto Blue Jays. Potential trade target Marcus Stroman threw a quality start yesterday, but it wasn’t enough against Masahiro Tanaka and the Yankees bullpen. Now the Bombers will welcome the Tampa Bay Rays into town as they try to extend their lead in the AL East. The most recent four-game series against the Rays ended up in a split down in Tampa, but in the Bronx...
