Yankees lose 1-2 at Washington on Nov. 23 franchise’s longest losing streak since Sept. 1982.
Frustrated bats prevented from snapping losing streak despite strong pitching performance
Major League Baseball’s most prestigious franchise is losing its way. 토토사이트 The New York Yankees have lost nine straight games.
The Yankees went 1-2 against the Washington Nationals in a 2023 Major League Baseball game at Yankee Stadium in New York City.
The Yankees’ losing streak, which began on April 13 against the Miami Marlins, has now reached nine games.
It has been 41 years since September 1982 that the Yankees have lost nine straight games.
The Yankees, who remain in last place in the American League East, are now 60-65 (.480 winning percentage) on the season. Their fall baseball hopes are further dimmed as they sit in seventh place in the wild-card standings, 10.5 games behind the third-place Seattle Mariners (71-55).
Carlos Rodon, who was activated from the disabled list, started on the mound and pitched six innings, allowing one run on six hits with one walk and one strikeout. It was his longest outing since joining the Yankees this season and tied for the fewest runs allowed.
Relievers Jonathan Loaisiga, Tommy Kanle, 스포츠토토 and Keenan Middleton combined for three innings of one-run ball to snap the losing streak.
The problem was the offense couldn’t get going.
Down 1-0 in the bottom of the third inning, things were looking good when Ben Lottbet hit a tying solo shot to right-center off Washington starter Josiah Gray.
But the long-awaited extra-base hit never came.
The Yankees bats managed just two hits. Lottbett, who had hit a home run, singled with two outs in the seventh inning, accounting for both of the team’s hits on the day.
Even more frustrating than the bunting was the cohesion.
The Yankees drew six walks against Washington pitchers on the day, but no matter how many runners were on base, there was no one to bring in.
“Every loss at this point is just awful,” Lottbet said after the game, according to MLB.com, “and it doesn’t make it any easier. 스포츠토토맨 We’ve just got to get ready to turn it around and play every day.”
