It was the latter last Sunday as Severino lasted only 2.1 innings and allowed three runs, six hits and three walks. His offense bailed him out of a loss. Severino and Joe Girardi blamed some of his problems on what they considered a tough strike zone by home plate umpire Gabe Morales. “I thought the strike zone was a little tight,” Girardi said. “He had to work really hard the first two innings and it caught up with him. It cost him.” It took Severino 26 pitches to get through the first and 22 more in the second before he was pulled with just one out in the third. Severino’s first win of the year was April 13 vs. Tampa Bay, allowing two runs and five hits over seven innings with a season-high 11 strikeouts.

On the mound they have been very solid in the early going as they come in ranked 6th in the league in ERA at 3.79, while also ranking 7th in WHIP at 1.26.
