Yankees manager Joe Girardi got into a heated war of words with umpire Dan Iassogna during Thursday’s game versus Cleveland, a 3-2 loss for New York. Ultimately, it took Danny Salazar 33 pitches just to get through the first inning.
“Disappointing. You’ve 55,000 people and, my goodness, if anything you’d be overamped, but he came out and his velocity wasn’t real good and they took advantage of it”, Francona said. “We’ve talked about just in the short period he’s been here how much we’re pulling for him, myself included, and he pitched his fanny off tonight”.
CC Sabathia (4-9, 5.24 ERA) saw his winless streak extended to six outings with a no-decision against Minnesota on Tuesday, yielding four runs on five hits in 6 2/3 innings. The Yankees have asked that fans planning on attending the game be in their seats by noon ET.

Texas entered play 1 games behind the Los Angeles Angels for the second wild-card spot, while the Tigers were three games further back.

Making his fourth career start, the 21-year-old Severino (1-2) gave up a one-out homer in the first to fellow rookie Francisco Lindor, but he yielded only two singles and four walks in the remainder of his six gritty innings.

For the first time in his brief Major League career, Yankees’ prospect Luis Severino actually got some run support.
“I think since he’s joined the team he’s been able to go out there and show what he’s capable of”. Like his previous start against the Indians, the first few innings of Severino’s afternoon were a little shaky, though he later settled down. One out later, McCann – serving as the DH in place of rested Alex Rodriguez – blasted his 22nd into the right-field seats for a three-run inning. He pitched into the eighth inning and held them to one run last week at home. Girardi said Mitchell has stitches that need to be removed before he can pitch in a game.
Switching gears, the Indians come into this game with a win percentage of.
