Yankees No-Hit Through 7.1 Innings, Lose in 3-Game Series to Twins:

Going into today’s game, the Yankees had a lot of major questions going into tonights game: The Oakland A’s, Luis Severino, the Rotation Itself, and Giancarlo Stanton’s recent struggles.

Yanks Win Again in Seattle! Yankees 4, Mariners 2

For the second night in a row, Andrew McCutchen went deep.  Last night Austin Romine also homered, delivering a solo blast (the opposite way) (see the video above) to give the Yankees  the lead.  

Lance Lynn allowed only three hits and two runs over six innings.  He also did not walk any batters.  The bullpen (Britton, Robertson, and Betances) closed the door over the final three innings.  

The series continues late this afternoon in Seattle as the Yankees go for the sweep.  (It will be great to see an entire game and not be awake until the early morning hours in order to do so.)
