They didn’t hit, even against an underwhelming opposing pitcher in maligned Yankees right-hander Sonny Gray (10-8). They didn’t field, certainly not to the quality required to compete with a playoff aspirant, let alone be one. All they did get was a just-fine starting pitching effort, this time from Andrew Cashner (4-12), that made it 33 losses when their pitchers record a quality start. It is all enough to lose, and with 93 defeats in their first 130 games, few teams have done so more often. Only 20 clubs in baseball history have lost that many games that quickly before them.
