Montas 04; New York’s ERA moved to 6.35, because Holmes saved the team with the 5th

MILWAUKEE — The Yankees spent most of July searching the market for the first two days of August to bolster their deep run in October Opportunity. So far, it’s fair to say that none of these trade-deadline moves have built confidence in this regard. Frankie Montas knew he fell short of expectations, but said there was still time.

Montas squandered an early five-point lead to give the ball to the bullpen in the fourth. Isiah Kiner-Falefa made a serious error in the eighth inning, Clay Holmes saw the Brewers in the ninth, and the Yankees lost 7-6 at American Home Stadium on Friday night.

“I haven’t really acted How I want to perform,” Montas said. “I’m going to keep trying, get out there, and try to be the best I can be. I want to show how I can pitch. I’m honestly not worried. I know what I can do and what I can do.”


The Yankees have had some much-needed laughs lately, helping them stabilize their ship from a dismal August. Win four straight and eight 04 When they arrived in Milwaukee, they appeared to be sliding in the direction of another simple “W,” with five straight runs from Milwaukee starter Adrian Houser in two innings.

Willy Adames put the Brewers back in the second inning of the game on Montas’ three-run homer. In the fourth inning, Montas teeed to No. 9 batter Garrett Mitchell, who later hit Holmes’ winner.

turns out to be 94 Montas threw the final double and Rowdy Tellez lifted Lucas Luetge’s game-tying sacrifice. Montas is 1-3 with a 6.28 ERA passed Eight started as a Yankees, allowing 28 to score and 46 hit

2/3 innings.

Despite these ugly numbers, Yankees head coach Aaron Boone said the right-hander is still considered the club’s No. 2 starter.

“us Need him,” Boone said. “He’s going to be back. He’s going to play against the Red Sox. We’ve got to get him going in a good direction and build some momentum.”

Boone said he believed that Montas would restore the dictation count and replicate 3. He passed The ERA shown starts in Oakland. The Yankees hope the playoffs will be a different story — especially if Montas plays with the Astros and he pitches well.

But there are no guarantees here, other deadline moves from general manager Brian Cashman 94 yields mixed results at best.

Andrew Benintendi, Kansas City All-Star, hit. 331/. 331/.79 exist27 His return date is uncertain until he injured his hand during the game. Lou Trivino has a 1. 04 ERA passed 04 Yankees played, But Scott Everos was hurt. Harrison Budd is still working on his Yankees debut, while Jordan Montgomery is terrific (2. ERA) in St. Louis.

“This is not my first year; when I roll, I know what I can do,” Montas said. “The regular season is not the same as the playoffs. The playoffs are like a fresh start.”

Even with Montas exiting early, the Yankees had a chance, playing their first game in Milwaukee after Derek Jeter played at shortstop. With a full base and two outs in the eighth inning, Jonathan Loesga enticed Adames to hit a bowler on the left side of the infield and Keena Faleifa attempted a backhand. Because of a scoring error.

“I know Adames is a great runner, and [I’m] about to get rid of it. I just missed it,” Kiner-Falefa Say. “It’s my fault. I take responsibility for tonight’s loss.”

Josh Donaldson hit a tying homer on a left field foul to lead the ninth, but Miguel Andu Miguel Andújar was called to a third strike that culminated in Boone’s ejection; Boone called the pitch “uncompetitive”.

In the home half, Holmes allowed him to score for the fourth straight game and Mitchell hit the tiebreaker to knock in field.

“I feel good in command,” Holmes said. “I think I have to attack the area there and believe that weak touch is just a little bit. In this case I tried to force a ground ball and missed some pitches. I just didn’t advertise when I needed to.”
