Last night was fun, right? The Yankees blew past the Red Sox 9-2 on the strength of a terrific Luis Severino start and ALL OF the home runs. Hopefully, the momentum from last night carries over to this afternoon matchup with the Baltimore Orioles.

We have a battle of young starters, as 24-year-olds Jordan Montgomery and Dylan Bundy take to the hill. Both pitchers are in the middle of pretty positive seasons, although Bundy has had a somewhat better year. Gumby has been a stud against Baltimore this season, however, with a 3.30 ERA in three starts against the Orioles.

Gary Sanchez's suspension was reduced a game, and he will begin his 3 game sit today.

First pitch comes at 2:05pm EDT, on YES and WFAN.
