Yankees Drop Two of Three

The Good

Vidal Nuno reversed his recent trend of getting shelled, and put up 5.2 scoreless innings against the Red Sox.  It was enough to inspire the anemic offense to score 6 runs that night.  Tanaka pitched a complete game giving up just 2 runs, otherwise known as a great start.  Dellin Betances had another great relief effort, pitching 2 perfect innings.  His season ERA is down to 1.33.  The offense could very well be waking up from their long spring slumber.

The Bad

Though the offense seemed to wake up this weekend, they were noticeably absent from another Tanaka start.  Tanaka took a loss because the Yankees could not score 2 runs.  Just saying, that's pretty weak.

The Ugly

Yesterday's game was another wasted opportunity, this time by the pitching staff.  The offense performed, and put 5 runs on the board, but that was what Whitley gave up in 4 innings.  Shawn Kelley and David Huff gave up an extra 3 runs in the 5th. 

Could This Be A Sign Of Things To Come?

Johnson, Gardner, McCann, Beltran and Teixeira all hit homeruns this weekend adding $10 to the Children's Health Fund.  Could this be a sign of an offense awakening from a prolonged slumber to take the world by storm?  We'll find out.

Brett Gardner 7hr = $14
Alfonso Soriano 6hr = $12
Kelly Johnson 5hr = $10
Carlos Beltran 8hr = $16
Dean Anna 1hr = $2
Brian McCann 9hr = $18
Yangervis Solarte 6hr = $12
Mark Teixeira 15hr = $30
John Ryan Murphy 1hr = $2
Jacoby Ellsubry 4hr = $8
Brian Roberts 3hr = $6
Derek Jeter 2hr = $4
Zoilo Almonte 1hr = $2

Total 68hr = $136
