Tonight, the New York Yankees wanted to leave their three-game losing streak in the rearview mirror with their ace Gerrit Cole on the mound. They hoped to win game two against the Toronto Blue Jays and keep from sliding further down in the standings. The Tampa Bay Rays don’t seem to be losing many games, so the Yankees understood they had to up their game and win against the young, energetic, and talented Blue Jays. The Yankees ended up with their 4th consecutive loss and the Jays beat them 5-1.
Gerrit Cole, the Yankees’ winningest pitcher, took the mound in the first facing Corey Dickerson who struck out on a 100 mph fastball.
