DETROIT – The Yankees were ready to steal a win from the Tigers on Friday night – and then struggling left Justin Wilson turned the win into a loss.
Wilson allowed Robbie Grossman a homer with two outs in the tenth inning and two runs, and the Yankees lost 3-2 at Comerica Park.
After scoring a run in the top of the 10th, Wilson was one stroke away from victory before his disastrous season resumed . After a tight field of play was called the ball, Wilson, who had allowed seven deserved runs in over 7² / ₃ innings in his last eight games, got Niko Goodrum to fly to the right and pinch Victor Reyes before Grossman took him deep on a full count.
After the Yankees left the runners at the top corners in ninth place, the Yankees had Aaron Judge in third place and Rougned Odor in tenth place when Detroit catcher Jake Rogers pitched Bryan Garcia passed him to score a pass that allowed Judge – who started the inning in second place – to score.
That was all the Yankees got, and then they handed the ball over to Wilson lower part of the inning.
In ninth place, Gary Sanchez faced Kyle Higashioka and met left-handed Gregory Soto. Aaron Boone then went to see Miguel Andujar to meet for Brett Gardner. Andujar played right and was replaced by prize runner Tyler Wade. Wade finished second on one wild field and third on a second wild field for Soto in a 3-0 place for DJ LeMahieu.
But with runners on the corners and one out, Giancarlo Stanton struck for the fourth time that night out. That brought out Judge, who also sniffed to keep the game tied.
Aroldis Chapman finished ninth with Jonathan Schoop. Akil Baddoo, who ran for Schoop, was caught first when Chapman ricocheted off a pitch and Sanchez kicked him out first. Chapman recovered to beat Nomar Mazara and get Eric Haase to fly left.
This was followed by a nice outing for Gerrit Cole, who gave up a run in six innings.
Cole threw himself on End of the first out of anger. After withdrawing the first two batters, he allowed Jeimer Candelario a double and went to Miguel Cabrera. But he recovered and brought Schoop too short.
The Tigers broke through in the third game against Cole with three single games. Grossman started the rally with a base hit in the middle and Harold Castro followed with a single to the right in the middle. Candelario’s second goal in the game came in Grossman, sending Castro into third place with one goal, but Cabrera scored a double at the end of the inning to keep the 1-0 down.
One day after being defeated by Toronto’s Alek Manoah – the 11th overall win in the 2019 draft – they were hampered by the first overall win from 2018.
Mize only allowed two hits in the first four innings before Odor a 2-0 pitch in the seats on the right to end the game 1-1 in the fifth.
Clint Frazier then scored to the left and Brett Gardner added a one-off goal. But LeMahieu and Stanton both sniffed to end the inning. LeMahieu and Stanton were without hits and struck six times in the first five innings at the top of the line-up.
Cole gave Candelario another hit to finish in sixth place. Schoop landed in a force-out, moved up to second on a wild field, and moved up to third on an overtaken ball, but was stranded there when Cole Mazara fanned.
Cole left after six innings and 103 pitches. He gave up one run and knocked out five.
After Mize was removed after five strong innings, Kyle Funkhouser, Jose Cisnero and ex-Met prospect Michael Fulmer threw three innings together.
