Cervelli Assures Fans After 5-3 Loss That The Season's "Not Over Yet"

When the Yankees blew a late lead in yesterday's 5-3 heartbreaker to the Orioles, their clubhouse must've been deflated.

For the second time in three days, they had blown a two-run lead in a frustrating defeat to their divisional rival, their third and fourth consecutive losses that dropped them all the way to eight out in the AL East Standings.

Nonetheless, after the contest concluded Yanks' Catcher Francisco Cervelli attempted to instill some much-needed hope in the club's fanbase, assuring ESPN New York's Wallace Matthews that this season, as bad as it's been, isn't yet over.

"Hell, yeah, we gonna fight," he said following the meltdown, in which Dellin Betances and Shawn Kelley combined to surrender four earned runs. "We gonna fight. We gonna win some games. This is not over yet." 

This weekend, somewhat unfortunetaly, New York will continue their road trip with a weekend set in Tampa, something that has to make some of their supporters cringe.

Still, considering the Rays are struggling this year and don't necessarily have a frightening rotation the Yankees could be able to take the series with a decent effort, a feat that'd certainly help them out in their race for the second wild card spot.
