Yankees Not Looking Like Projected Contender
The Tampa Bay Rays swept the Yankees at home in a three-game weekend series that extended their losing streak to five games and dropped their early-season record to 5-10. It’s the first time the team has been last in the AL since 1968.
The Yankees wasted another decent outing from Gerrit Cole to lose, 4-2 and looked lifeless at the plate and in the field.
The team’s batting average sank to.210, just one point above the Cleveland Indians, which have the worst team average in the AL. It’s also their worst team average through the first 15 games since 1968.
A’s Win 8 Straight
The A’s have found more success than the Yankees after yet another win extended their streak to eight games.
