Actually, truly the worst ever. You cannot beat this in terms of efficiency and devastation. Was this the highest-impact game Chapman’s ever wilted in? Of course not. But in terms of stunning blows, this came the quickest and the wildest. This was a worst-case fandom scenario. As Nelson Cruz’s home run, the second of the inning, was headed to the turf, it felt like a natural conclusion. Of course.
Except, well … not really! Four batters, four hits, two dingers for a loss. He’s the first Yankee ever to allow four or more runs and two or more homers while recording zero outs in a blown save.
That was not normal. In fact, it was the objective worst ever.
