Game 14 Recap: Winning Streak Ends, But Severino Shines

The Yankees lost 4-1 to the White Sox. Somehow, Miguel Gonzalez was an unstoppable wrecking ball until the 9th inning. The Yankees made it interested then, forcing David Robertson into the game, but only scored one run despite loading the bases.

On balance though, the game was good news for Yankee fans. Luis Severino continued to dominate hitters. His final line was 8 innings, 4 runs (3 earned) with 10 strikeouts and no walks. The big blow was a three-run home run in the seventh innings. I have to imagine that Severino would have been pulled in favor of Dellin Betances or Adam Warren had Yankee bullpen not badly needed rest. Severino was sawing through batters for most of the night. 

Jonathan Holder also continues to fly under the radar despite a strong start. He's now up to 5 1/3 innings with 7 strikeouts, no walks or runs, and 7 hits allowed. 

We get Tanaka vs. Dylan Covey tomorrow night. Should be a good one.
