ven when things look like they’re about to go right for the Yankees, they haven’t been ending that way.
New York lost for the fourth consecutive time on Sunday afternoon at Rogers Centre, 4-3, with its reliable duo of Dellin Betances and Tyler Clippard unable to hang onto a late one-run lead.
The outing cost the Yankees more than just the game, as New York’s Wild Card elimination number dropped to two as it sits 5 1/2 games back of the Orioles for the second American League Wild Card with seven games remaining.
If they actually had a shot, that loss would have been brutal. As it was, it was more annoying than anything.
I’m really doubting whether they can pull out even two wins in these last seven games of the season to just get to 81 wins, let alone the three wins they need to get to a winning record this season.
