Yankees go down against Brewers in series opener

MILWAUKEE -- The Yankees spent most of July and the first two days of August scouring the market to strengthen their chances of a deep run through October. So far, it can be argued, none of those Trade Deadline moves have built confidence in that regard. Frankie Montas knows he hasn’t pitched to expectations, but he says there is still time on the clock.  

Montas squandered an early five-run lead, handing the ball to the bullpen in the fourth inning. Isiah Kiner-Falefa committed a crucial error in the eighth, and Clay Holmes watched the Brewers walk it off in the ninth, with the Yankees absorbing a tough 7-6 loss on Friday evening at American Family Field.

“I haven’t really performed how I wanted to perform,” Montas said. “I’ll keep trying, going out there and just trying to do my best. I want to show how I can pitch. To be honest, I’m not really worried about it. I know what I can do and what I’m capable of doing.”
