Yankees offensive struggles continue in series-opening loss to Athletics

The New York Yankees opened a four-game series with the Oakland Athletics on Monday afternoon in the Bronx and were shut out for the fourth time this season in a 2-0 loss.

With the game scoreless in the top of the ninth, Victor González served up a two-run home run to Zack Gelof and that was the difference in the game.

New York (15-8), who has scored in just three of the 35 innings on this current homestand, managed just three hits and two walks.


Carlos Rodón allowed just one hit over seven shutout innings. Ian Hamilton and Ron Marinaccio had scoreless outings.

Manager Aaron Boone was ejected five pitches into the game after the plate umpire, Hunter Wendelstedt, thought he said something but it was a fan sitting behind the dugout.

Box Score

The Yankees will try to bounce back on Tuesday with Marcus Stroman on the mound. The first pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
