Yanks Even the Series with a Bang: Yankees 8, Rays 3

Yanks Even the Series with a Bang: Yankees 8, Rays 3

Prior to tonight’s game, the Yankees had been in the midst of a slight power outage, at least when one considers the rate at which teams have been hitting homers in 2019. The Yankees decided to make up for lost time, riding the long ball and a strong outing by CC Sabathia to come back late to beat the Rays 3-2, and even their 4-game series at 1 apiece. In addition to the fireworks created by the bats, the benches cleared between the top and bottom half of the inning, so you could say that this game had a little bit of everything, bust most importantly, the Yankees can start a new winning streak now.

Inching Closer: 23 Games Straight with a Home Run During 10-6 Win

Inching Closer: 23 Games Straight with a Home Run During 10-6 Win

Perfected by ESPN through their 30 for 30 Specials, the phrase “What if I told you,” has a special place in storytelling.

After tonights win, an outstanding, “What if I told you” is on the precipice of completion.

The all-time Yankees team record for games with consecutive home runs currently stands at 25, achieved back in 1941. That lineup contained sluggers Joe DiMaggio (30 HR’s), Charlie Keller (33), Tommy Henrich (31), and Joe Gordon (24). Everyone else on that team had 8 HR’s or fewer, yet they pieced together 25 straight games with a ball going over the fence.

Tonight, the 2019 Yankees pushed their streak to 23 games, and did so by blasting another 4 HR’s as a team.

(Let’s get #24 tonight!)

Yankees Demolish Rays For Series Sweep and CC's 250th Win

After coming off of a two poor road trips, where the Yankees had lost two consecutive series to the Blue Jays and Indians before splitting a 4-game series against the White Sox, they needed a restart while heading into a 10 day homestand.

Luckily, going into this series with the Rays, the Yankees were given reinforcements through acquiring Edwin Encarnacion and getting Giancarlo Stanton back from the injured list.

With this new energy, the Yankees were able to sweep the 3-game series against the Rays in spectacular fashion yesterday afternoon. Let’s check it out!

Voit, Sanchez, Urshela Combine for 10 RBI's in Game 1 Win vs. Mets

The Yankees continued their historic winning in the Subway Series against the New York Mets, as they took Game 1 by a massive 12-5 margin.

Lets quickly dive into the 4-1 comeback with how Tanaka fixed some early game mistakes, the defense didn’t play too great with 3 errors (luckily, so did the Mets with 2 of their own), and the offense that scored in all but 2 innings during today’s home win.

Let’s get win #2 on the day this evening! Sweep the Subway!

Yankees Lose 3rd Straight, Break Streak of 9 Straight Series Wins After 11-7 Loss

Yankees Lose 3rd Straight, Break Streak of 9 Straight Series Wins After 11-7 Loss

When looking at the game of baseball, it seems as though most of the game is broken into threes, thirds, or some multiple of such.

It takes 3 strikes for a strikeout, 3 outs per inning, and the average game goes into the 9th inning.

Yesterday’s Yankees-Blue Jays game was truly a game of flip-flopping thirds to see who was truly in control.

Yankees Late Game Rally Falls Short for Second Time This Week in 5-4 Loss to Padres

Yankees Late Game Rally Falls Short for Second Time This Week in 5-4 Loss to Padres

In a game that quickly brought a 4-0 deficit, it seemed as though the Yankees had no answer for how to combat the Padres, until they were able to get into the heads of the bullpen.

Unfortunately, however, former-Yankee Kirby Yates has developed into a shut-down reliever/closer this season, and on a bang-bang play at first base, the 19th loss was delivered via the replay system.

It was an uninspiring game for the most-part, and hopefully they’ll put this one behind them as they look to take the series later today.
