Not much has slowed the Yankees and their offense this season.

On Sunday, Cleveland right-hander Triston McKenzie found a way as the Yankees scored just one in a 2-0 loss to the Guardians at progressive field.

And that ended another excellent streak for the Yankees, who went 14-6 in 20 games in 20 days before Monday’s off day.

Even in the loss and with just one goal, the Yankees made it interesting.

Seven of their last eight wins have involved comebacks, and after two runs in the ninth inning, the Yankees had to face Cleveland closer Emmanuel Clase, who has been as effective as Clay Holmes for the past month or more.

Yankees designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton responds by knocking out during Sunday’s sixth inning against the Guardians.

Class went on a streak of 19 straight goalless appearances, allowing just 10 hits and one walk in 19 innings.

Anthony Rizzo went four pitches and Giancarlo Stanton landed for a short stop, but first baseman Owen Miller dropped Amed Rosario’s throw. Josh Donaldson flew into midfield for the first time and Gleyber Torres was caught watching.
Aaron Judge, not on the starting lineup while Aaron Boone was about to rest the bat, hit Jose Treviño and Judge walked to load bases for Aaron Hicks. Hicks rolled into second to finish him while Clase threw three sliders at him in a row.

The offense was mostly silent throughout the day when McKenzie stopped them to prevent the Yankees from completing a Guardians season sweep.

With the loss, the Yankees’ best MLB record fell to 58-22.

And it was hard to predict since McKenzie had conceded 13 earned runs and five homers in 10 ¹/₃ innings in his last two starts, both against Minnesota.

McKenzie wasn’t overpowered by the Yankees.

He retired the first 10 Yankees he faced.

Stanton was the Yankees‘ first base runner when he got a four-pitch walk with an out in the fourth and followed Donaldson with a single to left field. But Torres and Treviño failed to keep the game goalless.

Montgomery, who had two consecutive underperforming games when he conceded nine runs in 12 ²/₃ innings, only allowed a leadoff home run to Franmil Reyes in the bottom of the fourth.

The left-hander also hit out eight, but only lasted five innings and had a season-high three walks.

Isiah Kiner-Falefa was hit by a pitch from McKenzie to lead sixth and steal second but got stranded there.

JP Sears, recalled Sunday from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to fill the roster spot for Ron Marinaccio, who is on the disabled list with a right shoulder infection, threw two shutout innings before two back-to-back innings Singles Cleveland corner runners gave away with nobody. comes out in the eighth.

But LeMahieu, hitting Kiner-Falefa in the top of the inning, eliminated Steven Kwan at home with a groundout for second place and Gabriel Arias was eliminated between first and second place, leaving Rosario in second place. Albert Abreu replaced Sears and dropped an RBI single to Reyes to make it 2-0.

The Yankees finally threatened again in the ninth but fell behind.
