Clint Frazier had a rough day in the field for the Yankees in a 6-3 loss Tuesday night.
On two separate occasions -- once in the second inning and again in the seventh inning -- the left fielder dove for two balls hit at him but could not come up either one.
Both were instances in which it was the first baserunner of the inning and both eventually came around to score.
"I don't really have an explanation for that one," Frazier told reporters after the game. "It's never happened. It's never an easy play when you leave your feet, but that's not an excuse, though. I should've caught both those balls."
It was a sloppy day all-around for the Yankees.
In addition to Frazier's miscues, Brett Gardner failed to run out a bunted ball and Gleyber Torres and Jonathan Loaisiga rushed to cover an open third-base on a shift but were unable to get there in time.
"It's got to be better," manager Aaron Boone said. "Especially when you're playing a really good team, and you're up against a really good pitcher. You've got to do the little things that allow you to win ballgames."
