Struggling Stanton gets whiff of Yanks fans frustration

  • Giancarlo Stanton goes 0 for 7, strands nine runners in Yankees' extra-inning loss

The game gets underway at 7:10 p.m. ET.

It's early. The weather is still frosty in New York City.

On Sunday, Boston scored six runs with two outs in the eighth inning to overcome the Tampa Bay Rays.

The New York Yankees did its best at creating a baseball super team this offseason by acquiring 2017 National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton to pair with Aaron Judge and a cast of other young stars in the making.

Bentley Strikes Early, Holds On For 7-3 Win Over Baseball
Keene State registered just two hits in game one of the double-header, one from Olivia Indorf and one from JoEllen Racicot. The junior leads the team with 12 home runs, second only to Anna Grace Magee of Mandeville in all of the parish.

The scrutiny could gain a layer this week as Stanton makes his first foray into the American League East rivalry with the Boston Red Sox. The Yankees actually led their Sunday game against Baltimore 5-0 and still lost.

The under is 5-1 in the Yankees' last six trips to Boston and is 5-1 in the last six meetings between these two teams overall. The Orioles arrived in NY on a five-game skid and coming off getting swept by the Astros in Houston, but after taking three of four here, they return home for a three-game set with Toronto at 4-6. The Yankees have an over/under record of 6-4.

Another big strength has been the starting pitching (for the most part). The over has hit in one of those games, compared to one that've hit the under in such games. The over has hit in four of those games, compared to four that've gone under. The right-handed Severino struck out 230 hitters over 193 innings past year (31 starts) while finishing the season 14-6 overall with a 2.98 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP. On Wednesday, it's Masahiro Tanaka (1-1, 2.92) for the visitors and David Price (1-0, 0.00 ERA) for the Red Sox.

Severino had a chance to slay one of the game's best in Chris Sale on Tuesday.

The biggest question mark for Stanton will be Rick Porcello, who is slated to start the series finale Thursday. Well ten games in the bullpen and the starters appear to have flip-flopped and it has been the exact opposite.

Boston is 4-1 in its last five games at home. The team has a slash-line of.278/.349/.448 over its last five matchups and is 5-0 SU during that span.

To have those teams represent your first nine games was a gift, and the Red Sox did what a good club should - unwrapped the present to expose all of its deficiencies. He launched two long homers and doubled at Toronto, and the smashing start left Yankees fans giddy, wondering how many homers might Stanton and teammate Aaron Judge combine to hit. The bullpen has logged an ERA of 4.89, along with a K-per-9 of 13.39.

The Yankees are 5-0 in their last five Tuesday games and 14-5 in their last 19 following a loss. Benintendi, who entered hitting.161, ripped a two-run triple to right field that Judge misplayed against the wall.

Pirates, Cubs snowed out in Chicago
The Chicago Cubs have pushed back the scheduled start time for their home opener because of a steady snowfall over Wrigley Field. The Cubs will be without All-Star first baseman Anthony Rizzo , who was placed on the 10-day disabled list on Monday.

But two weeks into his debut in pinstripes, Stanton is stalling at the plate to an unprecedented degree. NY relievers have also had to work a lot more over the last few days, with the Yankees going to extra innings twice against the Orioles over the weekend. Slugging outfielder Giancarlo Stanton and the remaining 10 years of his groundbreaking $325-million contract was shipped to NY in the offseason, settling into a lineup that can now appropriately be called the Bronx Bombers again.
