Brett Gardner home run sail into left seats at Yankee Stadium versus Texas Rangers on May 24, 2015

Game 44 / 22-22 / 2nd / 1.5GB : We gotta stop these number retirement ceremony days. Have them in the off-season because the Yankees lose on every one of them. But it certainly wasn’t Bernie Williams’ fault today when the current roster continued their slide into oblivion. New York’s 5-2 loss to the Texas Rangers was their 6th straight, and 10th out of their last 11th.

Here’s the box score, full recap, and video highlights.

Rangers 5, Yankees 2

“These are our players. They have to turn it around.” ‐ Joe Girardi, when asked if any roster changes need to happen.

When A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

  • Chris Capuano   In his second start since coming off the DL, the lefty is yet to give the club extended innings. Tonight the line was 4.1 innings, leaving 13 outs for the bullpen to get. He allowed three earned runs on eight hits.

    “My No. 1 goal going out there was to get deep in the game and take pressure off the bullpen. Going 4 1/3 innings, I’m not happy with that. I need to pitch better.” ‐ Chris Capuano

  • Injury to Insult?   Joe Girardi discusses the loss and the injury to Brian McCann, who left the game in the top of the 9th inning, replaced by John Ryan Murphy.

Bernie Williams Day

Bernie Williams figured the baseball portion of his life was over. He wasn’t officially retired, but he didn’t feel the need to file any papers.

Why bother?

“I didn’t think it was that important,” he said.

On Sunday night, the former Yankees great realized what he was missing. A month after he finally retired, he was honored with Bernie Williams Day at the Stadium: His No. 51 jersey was retired and a plaque that will go in Monument Park to commemorate his mostly brilliant 16-year career — all in pinstripes — was unveiled before the Yankees-Rangers series finale.
