It would be very easy to count all the things that were going against the Yankees in yesterday's game. Michael Pineda was starting, he was starting against the powerful Tigers' lineup, each member of Fluffy gave up a run, the offense had been anemic, the list goes on. Somehow, they managed to come away with a win and now find themselves in Baltimore looking to keep the momentum going.
Can they start the series with a win? Luckily, one of their better starters will be on the mound as "Nasty" Nathan Eovaldi looks to continue his Eovolution.
On a sadder note, Ronald Torreyes is now your backup catcher as Brian McCann is out with a hyperextended elbow.:
McCann out with hyperextended left elbow. He is day to day. Torreyes is now your back up catcher. Refsnyder/Headley back up 1B #Yankees— Meredith Marakovits (@M_Marakovits) June 3, 2016
