Postgame notes: “You’d like to be able to limit it a little bit more”

If a five-game winning streak is going to end, it might as well end like this. There was no one play that made the difference. No one player let them down. The Yankees simple did not pitch very well, didn’t hit very well, and they got beat by a pretty good Tigers team. If the […] The post Postgame notes: “You’d like to be able to limit it a little bit more” appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Here’s what Joe Girardi said pregame: “I don’t know how you could for any more (than) what Brandon McCarthy has done, but we need him to continue to pitch like this.” That didn’t happen tonight. McCarthy’s worst start since joining the Yankees was a 5-2 loss to the Tigers, an obvious letdown that snapped a […] The post Winning streak ends as McCarthy (and the lineup) struggle in Detroit appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

NEW YORK -- David Price turned 29 Tuesday. Wednesday, he pitches for the Tigers against the Yankees. By this time next year, he may be on the verge of free agency.

No time for losing streaks

DETROIT -- They have followed a predictable, and disturbing, pattern all season long: Win one, lose one. Win two, lose three. Win three, lose two. Win four, lose four. Win five? Well, the Yankees have done it twice now this season. They did it in April, and immediately followed by losing three of their next five.
