Lauletta, a fourth-round pick who likely will be the No. 3 quarterback for the Giants in 2018, posted the photo above to his social media account. Allen (far left), Lauletta (third from left) and Darnold (far right) are joined by former Richmond quarterback Adam Sahd (second from left).
Giants quarterbacks Davis Webb, Alex Tanney and Lauletta are frequent golf partners, sometimes joined by Manning or teammates Calvin Munson and Shane Smith.
On the bright side, the weekend push seemed to endear the notoriously unpopular Reed to New York fans.
After one fan near the 8th green blurted out, Nobody likes you, dude! the response was tenfold, with a chorus of Everyone loves you, Pat! and I love you Patrick! drowning out the naysayer.
In a nutshell: a little negative, but plenty of positive. And that’s how Reed is trying to take this weekend, even with the late implosion.
Of course it’s disappointing, but at the same time – you know, I mean, finish second, tied for second at (the PGA Championship) last year, won Augusta, then I think I’ll finish in the top five here, Reed said…. To finish in the top 10 three of the last – my last three majors, and to have a chance to really win all three of them and to close one off, it means a lot.
He struck out six and gave up three hits while walking four. The Rays didn’t get their first hit off him until Wilson Ramo’s line-drive single to start the fourth.
That inning, Loaisiga worked out of a loaded the bases with two outs before striking out Christian Arroyo to end the threat. The final pitch was an 84-mph slider, Loaisiga’s 91st of the night more than any pitch total he had in the minors this year.
Loaisiga hit 98 mph several times. According to researcher Katie Sharp, Loaisiga is the second Yankee to make his big-league debut as a starter at home and allow no runs. The other was Sam Milltello on Aug. 9, 1992, against the Red Sox. The last Yankees pitcher to debut with less pro experience than Loaisiga was Ian Kennedy in 2009.
Loaisiga got the start in place of the injured Masahiro Tanaka (two strained hamstrings). It’s likely Loaisiga will continue in Tanaka’s rotation spot until he’s healthy. Cashman on Friday said Tanaka might not return for a few weeks.
In the eighth, the Yankees loaded the bases against ex-Yankee starter Nathan Eovaldi, who went seven innings. After lefty reliever Jonny Venters struck out Greg Bird, Gary Sanchez smoked a bases-clearing double to put the Yankees ahead, 5-0.
