Yankees’ Carlos Rodon led the Yankees to a loss inviting nothing but boos as he left the mound to the dugout. He was not oblivious to the horror story that he just started. He took to critiquing himself, “We were on a little roll there with five straight wins. Just trying to put the next one up, and showed up and kind of p**sed the bed and was not good”.

Revealing what was actually going on, Rodon stated, “Stuff was a little down and just a little all over the place. They barreled a lot of balls. I got my a** whooped”. The season’s future seems blurry for the Bronx Bombers after how easy he made the Tigers’ win.

Starting somewhat better was Eduardo Rodriguez, who also quite struggled with location initially but turned out steadier than the Yankees starter. Rodriguez went for six innings allowing four walks and three earned runs on four hits. He even included a free pass to Giancarlo Stanton that came on a violation of the pitch clock.
