Things aren’t looking so good for the New York Yankees right about now.
After a convincing 7-0 win over the Houston Astros in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series, the Yankees have dropped three straight games, including an 8-3 loss Thursday in Game 4 that pushed New York to the brink of elimination.
The Yankees’ bats have gone ice cold since the Game 1 win, as they’ve been outscored 15-6 in the ensuing three losses. Now, they have to face Astros star Justin Verlander in Game 5 on Friday at Yankee Stadium as they try to keep their season alive.
Such performances lately have sent Yankees fans into a tailspin on Twitter, and New York tabloid covers aren’t much more optimistic.
To be fair, there’s really no good way to dress up how the Yankees have played lately.
First pitch for Game 5 is set for 7:08 p.m. ET.
