The New York Yankees were blanked by the St. Louis Cardinals, 1-0, on Saturday night at Busch Stadium. With the loss, New York has now dropped four consecutive games for the first time this season.
Jordan Montgomery, who was traded from the Yankees to the Cardinals just four days ago, tossed five shutout innings and allowed just two hits. Aaron Judge and Kyle Higashioka had the only hits against him. New York couldn’t even manage to get a hit against the St. Louis bullpen.
Domingo Germán started for the Yankees and surrendered a run over five innings. Ron Marinaccio, Lou Trivino, and Aroldis Chapman had scoreless outings in relief.
Nolan Arenado drove in the only run of the game in the bottom of the first inning with an RBI single.
Frankie Montas will make his first start with the Yankees on Sunday as they look to snap their skid and avoid the three-game sweep. The first pitch is slated for 2:15 p.m.
