His timetable to return is unknown. Chris Devenski earned the save that night despite allowing a solo home run. In his next appearance, Devenski served up another long ball, leading to a blown save.Kevin Ginkel missed Tuesday night’s game with an illness.

The Yankees keep vowing that any day now they’re going to come out of their massive hitting woes . They keep promising they’ll get back to winning a lot of games the way that they have in past seasons with most of the same hitters. Clint Frazier drove in the Yankees only run with a two-out RBI single to right in the ninth. The Bombers managed just five hits in the loss. Yankees starter Corey Kluber allowed two runs over 4 2/3 innings . Luis Cessa and Brooks Kriske each allowed a run. Third baseman Gio Urshela left the game in the seventh due to lower back stiffness.

Urshela’s fourth- inning grand slam off right-hander James Karinchak gave the Yankees a 5-4 lead. It came after Aaron Hicks started the inning off Cleveland starter Carlos Carrasco with a triple over the head of Delino DeShields. Acting manager Sandy Alomar Jr. went to the bullpen for Karinchak, who went to a full count against Urshela before Urshela took him deep on a fastball with a shot that traveled 432 feet. Afterward, Urshela said he didn’t know what was going through his mind as he rounded the bases.

In case you haven’t heard, the New York Yankees are a disaster of a baseball team right now. Coming into Thursday, the Yankees were 6-11 on the year with six losses in their last seven games. Just one week ago, fans were so upset with the team that a game was halted after baseballs were thrown onto the field in disgust.

If the Yankees thought about possibly turning a corner on Thursday, they got off to a miserable start against the Cleveland Indians. In the first inning alone, New York made numerous thoughtless mistakes that gave Cleveland a 3-0 inning off the hop.

Those highlights — or lowlights, if you’d prefer — include:

Brett Gardner missing a routine catch in left field. A ball sneaking through Mike Ford at first for an infield hit. Pitcher Domingo German fumbling a softly hit ball to allow a Cleveland run to score.

The German mishap was especially egregious, as everyone remained safe — and Cleveland doubled their score! — on a play that very well should have ended the inning.

The damage at the end of the first for the Yankees was a 3-0 deficit and a cacophony of errors that were excruciatingly painful to watch. Not only that, New York has not been able to overcome a three-run deficit to win a ball game this season.

Against the Houston Astros in the American League Championship Series, the Yankees ’ once-potent bats have wilted in the biggest moments. That trend continued in an 8-3 loss on Thursday in Game 4 of this best-of-seven series that has the Astros one game away from a World Series berth. To save their season on Friday, the Yankees will need more offense and a better start from James Paxton, who was shaky in his first outing against the Astros in this series. The Astros will counter with Justin Verlander, who held the Yankees ’ lineup to two runs over six and two-thirds innings in Game 2.

The Yankees improved their chances to make the playoffs this Girardi said Gray, who last pitched July 25, would debut as a Yankee at the beginning of a road trip that opens Thursday in Cleveland . After lasting 2 ²/₃ innings Sunday against the Rays, Montgomery’s next day to start would be Friday in Cleveland . “I think he has pitched pretty well,’’ Girardi said of the 24-year-old Montgomery, who is 7-6 with a 4.15 ERA in 20 starts in his first year in the big leagues. “There have been some bumps in the road lately. I think he has given us an opportunity to win more games when he goes out than not.

Things just keep on going from bad to worse in New York, it seems.

In the first inning alone, Sanchez allowed two passed balls and could not block two more wild pitches by Severino as the Athletics scored four runs — all the offense they would need. “It was a mess,” Severino said of the first inning . The Yankees seemed well-positioned to continue where they left off after their late outburst in Tuesday night’s win when Giancarlo Stanton ripped a first - inning double and Aaron Hicks and Sanchez followed by drawing two-out walks on Wednesday. That brought up the Yankees ’ hottest hitter of late: Luke Voit, who had homered in three consecutive games.

CLEVELAND – Perhaps Chad Green isn't the answer to the Yankees ' rotation woes , after all. The Indians belted four home runs against the rookie Friday night, bashing their way to a 10-2 win over the Yankees in the second of four weekend games at Progressive Field. The first - inning runs would have been enough for Kluber, the 2014 AL Cy Young winner. The righthander blanked the Yankees over the first six innings before McCann led off the seventh with a solo homer that served as little more than window dressing.

Alvarado may have felt like Smith was messing with his rhythm.Alvarado then struck out Smith and began celebrating the big K. He was yelling at Smith, who yelled back. Benches cleared.
