Max Scherzer took the loss Monday after allowing two runs on nine hits and three walks with just four strikeouts over seven innings to the Yankees in New York.

Last year's AL CY Young award winner saw his streak of appearances without a loss snapped at seven games with Monday's defeat, which was his first loss since June 17. Despite the loss, Scherzer who is 13-4 in 23 starts this season, recorded his eighth consecutive quality start after having been lit up for 10 runs by the Royals in his previous defeat.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
