New York Yankees lose a tough one with a sloppy ninth

The New York Yankees were defeated by the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night.  The game took place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York and the final score was 2-0.  Michael Pineda started for the Yankees and pitched well.  The Yankees bullpen pitched pretty well and the offense didn't do much. 

Pineda pitched four innings giving up two hits and no runs with two walks and five strikeouts.  Tommy Layne pitched a perfect inning, Luis Severino pitched two innings giving up a hit and he struck out one and Tyler Clippard pitched an inning with two strikeouts.  Dellin Betances pitched an inning giving up a hit and two unearned runs and he struck out one.  Betances lost his fifth game of the season. 

Clayton Kershaw pitched five innings giving up a hit and he struck out five.  Grant Dayton pitched a perfect inning striking out the side, Pedro Baez pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up a hit and a walk and Luis Avilan pitched 1 1/3 innings with a walk and three strikeouts.  Avilan won his second game of the season and Kenley Jansen saved his 44th game of the season pitching an inning and giving up a hit and striking out the side. 

Brett Gardner drew a walk, Starlin Castro had two hits and Chase Headley had a hit and drew a walk.  The Yankees were 0-6 with runners in scoring position and left six men on base.  Sanchez, Castro and Betances each committed an error. 

Justin Turner had two hits, an RBI and drew a walk, Adrian Gonzalez drew a walk and Yasmani Grandal had a hit.  Josh Reddick had a hit, Grandal hit a double and Turner hit a double.  The Dodgers were 1-6 with runners in scoring position and left five men on base.  Seager had a stolen base and Turner committed an error. 

In the ninth Turner hit an RBI double to give the Dodgers a 1-0 lead and Grandal reached on a fielders choice error to make it 2-0 which would be the final score. 

The Yankees lost two out of three in the series and three of their last four after winning seven in a row.  The Yankees will now head on the road to take on Boston for four games starting on Thursday night.
