The New York Yankees dropped their fifth straight game with a 12-9 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals in the series finale on Sunday afternoon at Busch Stadium.

Frankie Montas made his Yankees debut, and it did not go well. The right-hander surrendered six runs on five hits over three innings while walking three and striking out two.

The offense certainly wasn’t the issue for the Yankees as they pounded out nine runs on 16 hits. Aaron Judge drove in four runs to lead the offense. DJ LeMahieu belted his 12th home run of the season while Matt Carpenter, Aaron Hicks, Jose Trevino, and Marwin Gonzalez chipped in with RBIs. Six of the nine batters in the starting lineup had multi-hit games.

Albert Abreu, Jonathan Loáisiga, and Scott Effross combined to allow six runs.

The Yankees will head to Seattle to begin a three-game series with the Mariners on Monday. Gerrit Cole will get the ball. The first pitch is set for 10:10 p.m.
