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 Score on Each Orioles Pitcher towards 6-5 Win and Series Sweep

With this latest bout against the Orioles going handedly to the Yankees- who also won their previous game against the Rays- they have now managed a 5 game winning streak for the second time in this young season. The first being from April 19th-24th (3 W’s against the Royals, 3 W’s against the Angels).

However, during this time only one other team has also won 5 games, and actually has a winning streak that is actively longer than the Yankees.

Would you believe me if I told you it was the Marlins? Who just swept the Mets and Tigers, each in a 3-game series.

Recapping tonights game, you’ll understand why I bring this up.

Let’s get to it!

Rays 2, Yankees 1: Rays Outlast the Yanks in Extras

Rays 2, Yankees 1: Rays Outlast the Yanks in Extras

Fans at Yankee Stadium may have been able to experience Game of Thrones Day today, but the real treat was the rematch between Ian Snell and Masahiro Tanaka. Tanaka got the better of Snell on May 12th, and he did the same today. Unlike the a week ago, the Yankees’ offense and bullpen was not able to give Tanaka enough support, and the Yankees lost 2-1 in 11 innings. As a result, the Yankees lost their lead in the AL East, falling 1/2 game behind the Rays.

Rays 7, Yankees 2: Bats Are Afraid

The Yankees struggled to score runs against the Rays on Thursday at the Slop….sorry, the Trop, while the Rays got on base against all 3 Yankee pitchers seemingly with ease to tie up the series at 1-1. Of particular note, the Rays used their “Opener” strategy to perfection, and Yankee tempers flared in the 6th.

Kikuchi Had Yanks 'Pining' for Hits & 'Tarred' the Hitters, as M's Win 10-1

The news will be spread throughout the night on every sports radio station, every televised sporting recap show, and be published into the morning on every major sports publication. And, it isn’t hard to see why.

In fact, its because it was too obvious, that this news will make the late-night publication rounds.

Pictures and Videos of Michael Pineda will be shared around the internet, thoughts about Kenny Rogers in the 2006 playoffs and memories of George Brett back in 1983 will follow suit. (Isn’t it funny that the Yankees are always wrapped up in pine tar related incidents?)

If you haven’t heard by now, Mariners pitcher Yusei Kikuchi is suspected (and it seems to be pretty blatantly clear) of using pine tar from the brim of his hat during tonight game, where he went into the 6th with a no-hitter.

We’ll get to this, and more, in this 10-1 Yankees loss game recap:
