Jeter activates home run cannon against Washington on May 25
Yankees lose to Washington, 5-6
“Cleanup hitter” Aaron Judge (31) hit his 28th home run of the season, but it wasn’t enough to lead the team to victory. A day after the New York Yankees snapped a nine-game losing streak, they lost again.
The Yankees lost 5-6 at home to the Washington Nationals at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York, on May 25 (ET). In a tightly contested game, the Yankees fell one run short of victory. They pounded out 12 hits, but were out-hit by the Nationals, who had nine.
Jersey led off the first inning with a solo shot. Judge, who started in the No. 2 spot in right field, blasted a two-run shot over the center field fence with the bases loaded in the bottom of the first inning. He followed up his three home runs the day before by firing up the cannon again, giving him 28 arches on the season.
After taking the lead on Judge’s homer, the Yankees gave up a run in the top of the third to tie the game, but scored two runs in the bottom of the inning to take a 3-1 lead. After a pitching duel, the Yankees gave up four runs in the top of the seventh to fall behind 3-5. They scored a run in the bottom of the eighth, but gave up a run in the top of the ninth, and scored a run in their final at-bat in the bottom of the ninth, but were unable to tie the game.
For the first time in a long time, the center fielders had a big day. The No. 2, No. 3, and No. 4 hitters all hit home runs, but it wasn’t enough to win the game. Judge went 1-for-4 with a double, home run, one RBI, one run scored and one walk, while No. 4 hitter Giancarlo Stanton went 4-for-5 with a double, home run and two RBI. Glavier Torres, batting third, also went 5-for-5 with a double, home run, and two RBIs. But the mound was shaky. Despite the opener strategy, the bullpen collapsed.카지노
The loss dropped their record to 61-66 on the season. The Nats sit in last place in the American League East, further diminishing their chances of making the postseason. The Nats won their 59th game in 69 games. Corbin gave up two home runs but improved to 9-11 on the season with a quality start, allowing three runs on seven hits with seven strikeouts in six innings.
