The Yankees blew a two-run lead
MIAMI (AP) — , committed three errors, struck out 11 times and lost Wednesday night to the last-place Marlins.Bring on Baltimore.Lance Lynn gave up five runs in the sixth inning, and New York’s four-game winning streak ended with a sloppy 9-3 defeat.Trailing first-place Boston by nine games in the AL East, the Yankees can’t afford losses to last-place teams, and manager Aaron Boone knows it. After a day off New York will begin a four-game series at Baltimore, which has the worst record in baseball.“We didn’t do a lot great down here,” Boone said. “We’ve got to get after it starting Friday. Obviously these are important. We’ve got to play better than we did tonight. We’re getting into that crunch time.”The loss came hours after All-Star closer Aroldis Chapman went on the disabled list with left knee tendinitis. He joined three injured regulars on the Yankees’ disabled list, and the offense looked depleted as New York split the two-game series.The Yankees totaled 10 hits in the final 17 innings against Miami.Giancarlo Stanton, playing in Miami for the first time since the Marlins traded him last November, went 1 for 3 with an RBI and finished 3 for 9 in the series. He remained at 299 career homers.Lynn (8-9) had a 2-0 lead in the sixth, but Miguel Rojas‘ three-run homer put the Marlins ahead to stay.“A couple of infield hits, and then a home run Daniel Castro Jersey ,” Lynn said. “I made one bad pitch, and it costs you three runs.”What made his fastball to Rojas a bad pitch?“It went over the fence,” Lynn said.The homer was the 10th for Rojas, who had never hit more than one in a season before this year.Attendance was 25,547, including lots of Yankees fans, and many of them had departed by the time Miami’s J.T. Riddle delivered a two-run, pinch-hit homer in the eighth.Neil Walker drove in two runs for New York with a double and a sacrifice fly, and Stanton had an RBI infield hit in the seventh.Miami’s Trevor Richards allowed two runs in 5 1/3 innings and struck out nine. Jarlin Garcia (2-2) retired both batters he faced.Lynn was charged with five runs for the second game in a row. He worked 5 1/3 innings.BRAIN CRAMPA mental lapse cost the Yankees in the seventh. When Miami’s Brian Anderson tried to steal second and Starlin Castro took ball four, catcher Austin Romine made a needless and wild throw to second. That allowed Anderson to advance to third, and he scored an unearned run on a groundout.SLUMPYankees first baseman Greg Bird went 0 for 10 in the series, dropping his batting average to .202.“It’s not fun going out and not performing ttp:// ,” he said. “You’ve just got to keep going in anything, in life. That’s what I fall back on.”FAMILY MOTIVATIONRojas’ mother, sister and grandfather, who all live in his native Venezuela, attended the game.“They don’t spend that much time with me here in the States,” he said, “but when they come here I try to play with a little more intensity, because I want them to enjoy their time here.”TRAINER’S ROOMYankees: RHP David Robertson, who has been nursing a tender shoulder, said he was available to pitch.UP NEXTYankees: LHP CC Sabathia (7-4, 3.32 ERA) is scheduled to start for the first time since Aug. 12 at Baltimore on Friday. Sabathia has been sidelined with right knee inflammation. The Yankees are only 6-6 this year against the Orioles.Marlins: RHP Elieser Hernandez (2-6, 5.08) is scheduled to start Thursday when Miami opens a four-game series at home against first-place Atlanta. If the Los Angeles Dodgers are going to win an unprecedented sixth consecutive National League West title Kyle Freeland Jersey , they are going to have to go an extra day in the season to do it.The Dodgers will play host to the Colorado Rockies on Monday afternoon at Dodger Stadium, with first place in the division at stake during game No. 163. Both teams finished the 162-game schedule with matching 91-71 records.The last time a team other than the Dodgers won the NL West was in 2012 when the San Francisco Giants were champs. Even though the Rockies were NL champions in 2007, they have never won an NL West title.Article continues below ...Monday’s game, between teams with red-hot offenses, will not necessarily be a winner-take-all affair. While the winner does advance directly to Thursday’s NL Division Series, the loser still will live to see another day in Tuesday’s NL wild-card game.Tasked with holding back all that offensive potential on Monday will be two young right-handers. The Rockies’ German Marquez (14-10, 3.75 ERA) will square off against Dodgers rookie Walker Buehler (7-5, 2.76).The preview to Monday’s game in Los Angeles was not necessarily a three-game series between the teams two weeks ago when the Dodgers swept the Rockies. A more specific preview happened May 21, when the teams played at Dodger Stadium.Marquez and Buehler put on a show that day that was worthy of a playoff game. They had nearly identical lines, with both giving up one run and two hits in seven innings. Buehler’s six strikeouts were one more than Marquez.The Rockies ended up winning that game 2-1 on Carlos Gomez’s RBI infield single. It was the first time the Dodgers and Rockies had faced each other this season.That May 21 game also showed the resiliency of Buehler, who was hit in the back of the ribs by a 108 mph Trevor Story comebacker. He still pitched two more innings in the game and even made three more starts before going on the disabled list with a microfracture in his rib cage.Buehler essentially missed the next five weeks, but as of July 31 Chris Iannetta Jersey , he has posted a 1.70 ERA in his last 11 starts. In one of those, on Sept. 19, he struck out a career-high 12 Rockies batters.He has been so steady to close out the season that the Dodgers even positioned Buehler to start Monday, if necessary, after they clinched a playoff spot Saturday. Buehler has a 2.61 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP in five starts against the Rockies this season.“It would be huge,” Buehler said about potentially pitching the Dodgers to another division title. “That’s the goal. It’s a long time from when we set that goal to now. It kind of all culminated, but at the same time it’s still a regular-season game, and is Game 163, which was odd, but we don’t go home if we lose and get a day off if we win.”Marquez enters on as impressive of a run as Buehler. In Marquez’s last 12 starts, dating to July 29, he is 6-2 with a 2.16 ERA. Although none of those outings were against the Dodgers , he was 2-0 in three starts against Los Angeles with a 2.57 ERA in 21 innings.Offensively, David Dahl has a home run in six of his last seven games, and Charlie Blackmon hit for the cycle on Sunday, the only major league cycle this season and the ninth in Rockies history.“It seems like we’ll have a tough series or whatever, a tough stretch, and we’ll always come back stronger,” the Rockies’ DJ LeMahieu said, according to the Denver Post. “That’s how it’s been all year. This is a group of winners, honestly, it’s a group of winners that keeps coming back. When our back’s against the wall, we play our best. I don’t expect that to change.”
