The first pitch Luke Voit saw after hitting a first-inning homer Friday was a 95 mph Lucas Giolito fastball near his head. Voit was clearly irked after the pitch: "I go deep on him, and next pitch [95]. I don't even know how it didn't hit me. It's a bunch of BS. Really frustrating. I don't know if he's trying to do it or not … First pitch you throw to me after I hit a HR off of you is at my face? I mean, you tell me."

The Yankees aren't pressing the panic button on their current 3-8 stretch. Here's what they said after Friday's 10-2 loss: "It's inevitable you're going to hit a patch, and we've got to play better, there's no question about it. But you can't be fazed by the ups and downs that are inevitably part of the season, and we won't be. But definitely a little bit of a rough patch, and we need to play better in every facet right now." (-Aaron Boone) "It's just a long season. We've had a bad 10 days. This team is very capable of doing what it did before that, and getting back to where we were. We'll be fine." (-CC Sabathia) "Everybody knows where we want to go, and what we need to do to get there. It's just a matter of playing a little better baseball." (-Brett Gardner)
