New York Yankees starter J.A. Happ emerged victorious Wednesday afternoon as his club picked up their 16th consecutive victory against the Baltimore Orioles. The 36-year-old struggled early, allowing a run in the first inning of the game. As has been the case many times this season, however, Happ enjoyed plenty of offensive support as his club scored four runs of their own in the first. He would toss just five innings, allowing two runs on six hits and three walks. The game would be won by the Yankees, 6-5, as Happ improved his season record to 10-7.
The New York Yankees finally got a quality start out of a starting pitcher Tuesday night, but this time it was the offense that failed to produce. J.A. Happ went six innings and allowed three runs, but took the loss as the Arizona Diamondbacks prevailed, 4-2 in the Bronx. Happ surrendered eight hits and a walk, striking out two along the way. His night got off to a bad start with a first-inning solo home run allowed, but he managed to limit the damage. The Yankees have now lost four of five as the trade deadline nears and a move for a starting pitcher in desperate need.
New York Yankees starting pitcher J.A. Happ will have his next scheduled start pushed back until Friday against the Colorado Rockies. He was supposed to pitch Thursday, but it will be pushed back a day with Wednesday's game being postponed. Domingo German will draw the start on Thursday.
