Here are the conclusions…

-New York’s offense entered this weekend’s series struggling to score runs. They scored only six runs in their four-game series against the Baltimore Orioles, and the batters were not named. juan soto they hit less than .200 in that span.

Things didn’t get any better on Friday, as the lineup was stuck on two hits and struck out nine times in the first eight innings. And when they got to base, they couldn’t get that decisive hit.

The Yankees began Friday with 38 GIDP, the most in the majors, and hit two more against the Tigers. The oldest came in the seventh with Gleyber Torres with men on first and second and one out, and he ended the possible comeback with his double play at the bottom of the inning.

With the Tigers reliever Jason Foley on the mound, Aaron judge hit single to open before Alex Verdugo he bunted to the open left side to put runners on first and second with no out. Giancarlo Stanton he doubled to tie the game 1-1 before Rizzo singled up the middle through the infield to win the game.

-Friday starter, Marcos Stromman, breezed through the first five innings against Detroit. He entered the sixth inning after throwing just 64 pitches, but ran into some trouble. A single and two walks left the bases loaded with one out. Stroman then ran ahead of the manager. Aaron Boone I take it out.

Ian Hamilton He came in to end the inning with a strikeout and a groundout to keep the score at 1-0.

-The Hamilton combination, Victor Gonzalez and Dennis Santana he pitched 3.2 scoreless innings.
