NEW YORK—For a few moments, the Yankees were almost able to forget about Javier Vazquez’s transgressions. But a late loss allowed the sour taste to come bubbling back.
Vazquez again pitched poorly on Saturday and despite a late comeback, the Yankees fell to the White Sox, 7-6, at Yankee Stadium.
1) Have your fourth starter who came in with an ERA of 9.00 have his worst game of the year? Check.
2) Lose your starting CF to a groin injury? Check.
3) Rally back from a 5-0 deficit to take a 7-6 lead in the sixth inning? Check.
4) Blow that lead in the seventh.
This was a tough loss, not just because of the game itself, but because we now have even more uncertainty about what the Yankees are going to get out of Javier Vazquez this year, and because Curtis Granderson is possibly heading to the DL.
