Well, tonight’s game against the Yankees was not quite like last nights game. Mitch Keller came out looking solid putting 0’s on the board until the 5th inning when things started to go south. After 4 earned runs on 10 hits and 2 HR’s, Keller was pulled after the 6th.
The offense couldn’t find answers for Severino and company compiling just 4 hits on the night. Bryan Reynolds collected 2 hit while Oneil Cruz smoked a ground ball and beat it out for an infield single. Other than that, there isn’t much you can talk about this team offensively tonight.
With the game already looking out of hand, Manny Banuelos made his Pirates debut facing his former team giving up 5 earned in just .1 innings. If that wasn’t enough, we all got to watch a position player pitch once again in Josh VanMeter who allowed 6 more runs during his mound duty.
