Yankees got Cobb-ered
There are not many things you can predict about baseball except this one: You can’t win if you don’t score any runs. The Yankees proved that statement to be true in a 5-0 loss to the Rays on Friday night.
It was their fifth straight loss in the season series against Tampa Bay, their longest single-season losing streak vs the Rays in franchise history.
It was also their fifth straight loss overall, with a total of just seven runs scored in the five losses. The last time they had a five-game stretch with five losses and no more than seven total runs was in May 1995.
Derek Jeter had two hits for his 1,007th career multi-hit game, breaking a tie with the Braves’ Hank Aaron for the third-most multi-hit games with one team. The only players with more are the Cardinals’ Stan Musial (1,059) and the Tigers’ Ty Cobb (1,211), according to the Elias Sports Bureau.…
