Yankees Could Drop Giancarlo Stanton In Batting Order

Yankees Could Drop Giancarlo Stanton In Batting Order

Stanton was booed after hitting a double play in Tuesday's first at-bat against the Miami Marlins - his former team. Garcia threw a strike to make the count 3-1. However, Stanton is off to a rough start this season batting.197 with three home runs, 10 RBIs, and 29 strikeouts.

The Yankees return to action against the Toronto Blue Jays tomorrow - the first of a four-game series. He went 0-for-3 on Monday with a walk and a run scored. Obviously right now we've had trouble scoring runs, so he can be a part of that. But that's just how the game goes.

Michael A. Taylor worked a bases-loaded walk to cap a six-run eighth inning by Washington, which stunned host NY.

Stanton is yet to replicate his stunning Marlins form for the Yankees in the opening weeks of the Major League Baseball season. Ryan Madson earned his second save.

Wallach was 4 for 31 (.129) with two RBIs and 17 strikeouts in nine games. Bryce Harper accounted for the Nationals' only run in the first seven innings with a broken-bat home run in the first.


PITTSBURGH - Trevor Story drilled a three-run home run, German Marquez pitched six effective innings and Colorado kept its road surge going.

But this is why they play the games.

German Marquez took a no-hitter into the fifth inning, and Trevor Story and Charlie Blackmon continued Colorado's home run parade as the visiting Rockies downed Pittsburgh. People would ask him if then-owner George Steinbrenner would get on him, but the six-time All-Star first baseman said he would always feel worse than the Boss if he wasn't playing up to his own expectations. Chris Rusin allowed two hits in two scoreless innings of relief, and Adam Ottavino pitched a clean ninth with two strikeouts. His second at-bat starting in a promising way.

MILWAUKEE - Billy Hamilton drove in three runs and Cincinnati ended an eight-game losing streak. "In times like this, you just kind of ride the storm", he added. Adam Duvall had three hits, including two doubles, while Joey Votto and rookie outfielder Phillip Ervin had two hits apiece for Cincinnati. Castillo (1-2) allowed four runs and five hits and three walks while striking out eight.
