Aroldis Chapman was tagged with the loss after allowing one run on two hits in the ninth inning against the Yankees on Sunday.
Chapman had a 9-pitch battle with Yankee leadoff hitter Jacoby Ellsburry (last pitch of the at-bat was 101 mph). It ended in a single, then Ellsbury promptly swiped second base which eventually led to Brian McCann driving him home for the walk-off one a bloop single. Chapman has been the best reliever in baseball, and should continue to be. The Yankees got lucky. ANALYST:
Cardinals have signed DT Red Bryant.
This is already the third team Bryant has been with this season as the 31-year old defensive lineman is nothing more than added depth and always the roster casualty when the team needs roster room. At least he gets to spend his Thanksgiving knowing that he is still employed. Analysis: Howard Bender
