Yankees Lose Fourth Straight as an Athletics Novice Shines

OAKLAND, Calif. — The way the Yankees have been going — with wounds here, there and wherever — it scarcely appeared an unexpected when pitcher Luis Severino slammed his correct knee while remaining close to his locker on Friday evening.

Severino reviled, bounced here and there on one foot, and hammered his hand against a seat.

On a day when Gary Sanchez and Aaron Hicks rested as a result of wounds and Adam Warren joined a developing impaired rundown, Severino’s setback felt typical of a group that can’t appear to get a break.

For the second day consecutively, the Oakland Athletics devoured a drained Yankees warm up area, encouraging for a 7-6 triumph on the main hit of the top prospect Matt Chapman’s vocation — a two-run, eighth-inning single off reliever Jonathan Holder.

At the point when Santiago Casilla hit out Starlin Castro with the tying keep running at to begin with, it solidified the fourth back to back misfortune for the Yankees — their longest slide of the season — and limited their lead in the American League East to a solitary amusement over Boston. It was additionally the third time in the last four amusements that the Yankees lost a lead in the eighth inning or later.

“It’s a piece of the diversion,” Yankees Manager Joe Girardi said. “Each group will experience it. I’m satisfied with the way we’re battling back, and that will look good over the span of the season. At this moment our warm up area is in not more than a few moments of confuse. We’ll get it rectified and we’ll be fine.”

The warm up area, which was utilized intensely against Baltimore on Sunday and against the Angels in Anaheim on Tuesday, will get Aroldis Chapman back on Sunday from his month-long nonattendance due to rotator sleeve irritation.

“Obviously you miss Chapman since it makes your warm up area longer,” Girardi stated, “however the way that they tossed 16 innings in three days, it only sort of fouled it up.”

Severino recouped from a rough four-run second inning and did not permit another hit, resigning 12 of the last 14 hitters he confronted.

Aaron Judge, playing around 80 miles west of the place where he grew up, Linden, Calif., recovered the Yankees into the amusement with a two-out, three-run homer in the third inning. One hitter prior, Athletics shortstop Chad Pinder had neglected to corral Rob Refsnyder’s one-jump single.

The Yankees tied the score in the fifth when Ronald Torreyes multiplied and scored on a solitary by Mason Williams, who had been called up before in the day. Williams and catcher Kyle Higashioka were educated of their new assignments — as trades for the harmed Hicks and Sanchez — as the Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre transport moved into Syracuse in the early hours of the morning.

Chris Carter put the Yankees in front with a performance homer off the left-hander Sean Manaea — Carter’s third homer in eight at-bats against Manaea. Judge tripled and scored on Castro’s single in the seventh to expand the Yankees’ prompt 6-4.

The Athletics shut to inside 6-5 in the seventh on Pinder’s fielder’s choice off Chasen Shreve before leading the pack in the eighth. They did as such against Holder, who was called upon in light of the fact that the typical setup man, Tyler Clippard, drawn into the nearer’s part with Dellin Betances inaccessible in the wake of tossing 39 pitches on Thursday.

The damage news, for the occasion, could have been more awful.

Sanchez (crotch) and Hicks (heel), who left Friday night in the late innings, were recorded as everyday. Warren was set on the debilitated rundown, not on account of his damage (bear snugness) is viewed as genuine but since the Yankees required the list spot.

Warren joined pitchers Chapman (shoulder) and C. C. Sabathia (hamstring), outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury (blackout) and first baseman Greg Bird (lower leg) on the debilitated rundown. Chapman is set to be actuated Sunday, and Bird will see a lower leg authority on Tuesday.

The Yankees, who had nine days off in the initial six and a half weeks of the season, are amidst a less lenient extend: They have played 30 recreations in the previous 32 days (counting a rainout) and have just two more days off before the All-Star break.

It has not helped that the Yankees have played two additional inning amusements on this West Coast swing.

“You’re getting in late at evenings, you’re voyaging a great deal,” Girardi said. “Yet, this is just the same old thing new. This has been continuing for 30 to 40 years. This is the life of baseball players. Dislike each group doesn’t experience this. Dislike Reggie Jackson’s era went poorly it. Dislike my era went poorly it.”
