Rookie Jake Bauers and the Tampa Bay Rays made it a lost weekend for the New York Yankees. An injury to Gary Sanchez turned the trip into an even bigger loss.
Bauers led off the 12th inning with a home run and Tampa Bay completed a three-game sweep of the Yankees with a 7-6 victory Sunday.
”It’s a crazy feeling [url=http://www.chiefsauthorizedshops.com]Chiefs Game Jerseys[/url] ,” Bauers said.
Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Sanchez hurt his right groin/hip abductor trying to beat out a double-play grounder in the 10th and ”it’s probably going to be a DL situation.”
”What can I say?” Sanchez said through a translator. ”That’s the way baseball is sometimes. Now I’m just hoping it’s not a long time.”
Sanchez will undergo an MRI exam Monday.
Giancarlo Stanton doubled twice and homered while going 5 for 5 for New York. The Yankees had been the only team in the majors that hadn’t lost three in a row this year – this was the latest into any season they had gone without losing three straight since August 1954.
”Just a frustration weekend, but you just turn the page from it,” Boone said.
Bauers, who tripled earlier, homered on the first pitch from Chasen Shreve (2-2). Five previous New York relievers held Tampa Bay hitless for eight innings.
Brett Gardner opened the 12th with a bunt single that saw Rays reliever Jonny Venters strain his right hamstring and depart the game.
Venters hadn’t pitched in the majors since the 2012 NL wild-card game with Atlanta until joining Tampa Bay this season. The lefty had three Tommy John surgeries (2005, 2013, 2014) and another other major procedure in 2016.
Venters will be going on the disabled list
”Hopefully, it’s a mild strain,” Venters said. ”It’s disappointing, but injuries are part of the game.”
Ryan Yarbrough (7-3) replaced Venters and worked out of a first-and-third jam by getting a two-out grounder from Austin Romine, who replaced Sanchez.
Stanton hit a solo homer in the eighth off Vidal Nuno that made it 6-all. He reached on an infield single in the 10th before Sanchez hurt himself.
Nuno allowed one run over four innings.
Yankees pinch hitter Clint Frazier lofted a towering fly in the ninth that struck a speaker hanging from an overhead catwalk and shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria, as allowed by the ground rules at Tropicana Field, caught the carom for an out in shallow left.
Hechavarria missed time earlier this season with bruise near his eye when a ball took a strange bounce on the turf after striking a catwalk.
”As the play was happening [url=http://www.ramsauthorizedshops.com]Rams Game Jerseys[/url] , once it hit up there, I thought about that last play,” Hechavarria said through a translator. ”That’s not going to happen again.”
Tampa Bay tied it in the second on Hechavarria’s solo homer, and went up 6-3 when Carlos Gomez had an RBI single and Jesus Sucre drove in two with a double off Domingo German during the third.
”It always nice to beat the Yankees,” Hechavarria said. ”And it’s good that they’re leaving here a little frustrated about getting swept by us.”
It’s the second time – also the Chicago Cubs in June 2008 – that Tampa Bay has a swept a series of three or more games against a team that entered a series with the best record in the majors.
Didi Gregorius and Stanton had consecutive run-scoring doubles in the fifth to make it 6-5. Miguel Andujar put the Yankees ahead 3-2 with a three-run homer in the second.
Yankees: RHP Masahiro Tanaka, on the 10-day disabled list since June 9 with strained left and right hamstrings, threw 26 pitches in his first bullpen session. He will get on the mound again Tuesday.
Rays: Gomez started after missing Saturday’s game with a sore left wrist. He was hit by a pitch from CC Sabathia on Friday.
Yankees RHP Luis Cessa (0-0) will make his first start this season Wednesday night at Philadelphia. The move allows Sabathia to get a couple extra days of rest and start the opener Friday night of a three-game series with Boston at Yankee Stadium.
Yankees: RHP Jonathan Loaisiga (1-0) makes his third major league start Monday night against Philadelphia RHP Vince Velasquez (5-7).
Rays: LHP Blake Snell (9-4), with an extra day of rest, faces Washington LHP Gio Gonzalez (6-4) on Monday night.
TORONTO — Fans of the Toronto Blue Jays will have a chance to see a 19-year-old phenom on Friday night.
It will not be the one they have been waiting for all season, third baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr., however. It will be outfielder Juan Soto of the Washington Nationals, who will play a three-game interleague series at the Rogers Centre.
The Nationals (37-28) will start left-hander Gio Gonzalez (6-2, 2.65 ERA) in the opener and the Blue Jays (30-38) will counter with right-hander Aaron Sanchez (3-5 [url=http://www.chargersauthorizedshops.com]Chargers Game Jerseys[/url] , 4.33). Both teams had Thursday off.
In 20 games since he was called up from Double-A Harrisburg, Soto is batting .344/.447/.641 with five homers and 12 RBIs. Soto hit two home runs and had four RBIs Wednesday night in a 5-4 win over the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium.
Guerrero, meanwhile, is on the disabled list with a strained patellar tendon in his left knee, although it is unlikely that he would be in the majors yet despite batting .407/.457/.667 with 11 homers and 55 RBIs at Double-A New Hampshire.
Soto (19 years, 231 days) became the youngest player to homer at Yankee Stadium since Andruw Jones (19 years, 180 days) of the Atlanta Braves in Game 1 of the 1996 World Series. The last younger player to homer in the Bronx in a regular-season game was Ken Griffey Jr. on May 30, 1989 (19 years, 190 days). Griffey Jr. also hit two homers in that game.
Soto became the youngest player in the majors to hit two homers in a regular-season game since Jones on Aug. 22, 1996, against the Cincinnati Reds. He also is the youngest in the majors with a four-RBI game since Robin Yount (19 years, 227 days) of the Milwaukee Brewers on May 1, 1975 [url=http://www.dolphinsauthorizedshops.com]Dolphins Game Jerseys[/url] , against the Detroit Tigers.
“For him to go out there and do what he did (Wednesday), in front of this crowd, it tells you a little bit about the character that he brings,” Nationals manager Dave Martinez said. “He understands the game. He understands his at-bats. He’ll swing at a bad pitch, and then he’ll lay off the next one. And he’s been doing that all year. He’s not afraid to take his walks. He’ll take his walks when he needs to. And he’s learning every day.”
Soto’s home runs helped offset some poor play by Washington.
“Let me be honest with you. It was ugly. It was,” Martinez said. “I’m not going to lie. We gave them five outs. Typically, when you do that, you don’t expect to win the ballgame.”
The Nationals split two games at Yankee Stadium and are 5-5 in their past 10 games. They are 22-12 on the road.
The Blue Jays, who are 5-5 in their past 10 games, were swept in a three-game series by the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field, including a 1-0 game in the finale on Wednesday afternoon.
Before visiting the Rays, the Blue Jays swept four games from the struggling Baltimore Orioles at the Rogers Centre. Despite the sweep of the Orioles, the Blue Jays are 16-19 at home. Overall [url=http://www.vikingsauthorizedshops.com]Vikings Game Jerseys[/url] , they are 13-26 since May 2.
Gonzalez is coming off his shortest start of the season, 3 1/3 innings on Saturday. He allowed four runs, six hits and four walks in a game Washington won 7-5 over the San Francisco Giants.
He is 2-2 in five career starts against the Blue Jays.
Sanchez has reached 100 pitches in his start twice this season, which happened to be his two most recent outings when he had a win and a no-decision.
He is 1-3 with a 4.63 ERA in his past seven starts. The 25-year-old has never faced the Nationals.
The Blue Jays could have third baseman Josh Donaldson back on the lineup Friday. He has been on the disabled list with a calf injury. He also could play a rehabilitation game with Triple-A Buffalo before rejoining the Blue Jays.
Second baseman Devon Travis should return to the lineup Friday after being left out of the starting lineup Wednesday to rest a right knee that required surgery last year. He entered the game as a pinch runner in the eighth inning and finished the game at second base.
Travis has been one of the Blue Jays’ better hitters since rejoining the team from Triple-A Buffalo on May 22. In his past 15 games, he has gone 14-for-48 (.292) with three extra-base hits.
“When he starts hitting the ball pretty crisp the other way, he’s where he should be,” Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. “I don’t know if that had anything to do with the knee early on, and whether he could load up on it or not.”
