The 2022 season is over for the New York Yankees, following a disappointing 6-5 loss to the Houston Astros in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series.

After struggling to garner much offense during the series’ first three game games, the Yankees had the lead, twice. They lead 3-0 before Jeremy Pena cracked a three-run homer to left off Nestor Cortes in the third inning.

The Yankees grabbed the lead right back on a RBI single by Anthony Rizzo in the fourth inning. Then they padded that lead with Harrison Bader’s fifth home run of the postseason.

The Yankees bullpen couldn’t close the door.

Jonathan Loaisiga served up the game tying hit to Yordan Alvarez in the top of the seventh inning. After being lifted for Clay Holmes, Holmes promptly gave up a RBI single to Alex Bregman, who drove in the eventual winning run. Both runs were charged to Loasiga who took the loss.

The Yankees would not get a hit or a runner on base for the rest of the night as the combination of Bryan Abreu, Rafael Montero and Ryan Pressly shut the door over the games final three innings.

The Astros head to the Word Series for the fourth time in six years where they will face-off with the Philadelphia Philies.

The Yankees head home with nothing but questions. Questions about the future of manager Aaron Boone, who is under contract through 2024. Questions about Aaron Judge who is a pending free agent, and questions about the make-up of the roster as the Bronx Bombers try to retool for the 2023 season.

One thing is certain, the Astros just own the Yanks.

  • Judge talks about the future

  • Anthony Rizzo sounds off on Judge's future

  • Manager's Meet

    Aaron Boone and Astros manager Dusty Baker meet afterwards.

     

  • Yankees fans are angry

    Of course Yankees fans are so angry and upset that they are not in the World Series again for the 13th straight season.
