Yesterday’s game was postponed due to rain, so the Yankees will play two games today. Of course the Yankees are playing a doubleheader on Mother’s Day Derek Jeter Day, of all days. I’m not saying the Yankees control the weather, but I’m not not saying that.

Luis Severino will take the mound in the first game of this doubleheader. He will face off against a struggling Mike Fiers. The Astros pitcher has surrendered 14 home runs through 30.1 innings pitched (4.15 HR/9), and has been worth -1 fWAR so far. Today would be a good day for the Yankees to hit some home runs. The game is scheduled to begin at 2:05 PM EST and you can catch it on YES. The second game will start no earlier than 7:35 PM.

Happy Mother’s Day
Happy Jeter Day
Go Yankees
