Luis Severino hammered in Yankees series-opening loss to Dodgers

The New York Yankees (34-25) fell into a big hole and could not climb out of it as they fell 8-4 to the Los Angeles Dodgers (35-23) in the series opener on Friday night at Dodger Stadium. 

Luis Severino turned in one of the worst outings of his career, allowing seven runs, six of which came in the first inning, on nine hits over four innings. His velocity was noticeably down, and he didn’t have the swing-and-miss stuff that he usually has. 

New York’s offense came from the two guys who came off the injured list. Josh Donaldson homered twice, and Giancarlo Stanton added a solo shot. 

Aside from the long ball, the Yankees were held to just three hits. 

Tommy Kahnle made his season debut and fired a scoreless frame. 

The Yankees will try to snap their two-game skid on Saturday with Gerrit Cole on the hill. The first pitch is slated for 7:15 p.m.
