Rockies 8, Yankees 4: Rox snap 6-game losing streak

Photo by Mike Stobe/ The Rockies really needed this win The Rockies beat the Yankees 8-4 on Sunday afternoon at Yankee Stadium to end their 6-game losing streak.

Offense from the stars We’ve been talking a lot about the pitching struggles since the Rockies began their tailspin, but since June 30, the day the 2-13 stretch began before Sunday’s win, the offense had been just as bad. Only Ryan McMahon, Trevor Story, and Daniel Murphy hit above league...

NYY News: Baseball to 10-day IL after being hit by Voit’s face

Photo by Mike Stobe/ Luke Voit shrugs off a fastball to the face; Robbie Ray has ties to Yanks; former Rockies have been huge for Yankees this season; team’s depth has been simply unfair.

Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports The Bomber bats stayed hotter than the heat index, and Masahiro Tanaka delivered a fantastic performance marred by one inning Don’t let the 11-5 final score fool you. This solid victory for the Yankees was both a harsh beatdown of a scuffling team, and almost too close for comfort in the span of a few innings. The bats delivered a massive lead early on, Masahiro Tanaka carved his way through until he fell off a cliff, and the Yankees settled down to finish the job.
