Here’s to a great week!
Yankees 7, Indians 4
Tough loss in what was a tough weekend against the Evil Empire.
The young right-hander was excellent, giving up just one hit and striking out 10.
An ERA of 10+ since Andrew Miller went down won’t cut it. From Paul Hoynes:
Since left-hander Andrew Miller injured his left hamstring on April 25 and went on the disabled list, the bullpen is 1-5 with one save and two blown saves. In that stretch, the relievers have allowed 38 earned runs in 34 innings for a 10.06 ERA.
The pen has gone from being one of the AL’s best in the first couple of weeks of April, to one of the worst in the big leagues. They’re currently 3-9 with a 5.51 ERA. The only teams with a higher ERA in the big leagues are AL Central rivals Minnesota and Kansas City.
”It’s been very difficult,” said Allen. “This game is not easy. Sometimes it can be a lot harder and that’s just how it feels right now.
