After a month-long break, the Yankees and Nationals will finally resume their series in DC that was originally scheduled for May 15-16th.
We’ll pick up play in the bottom of the sixth inning with the game tied at three. In the time since this game was first played, the Yankees’ starter, Masahiro Tanaka, has been injured and the guy who drove in all their runs, Tyler Austin, has been sent down to AAA.
As for what the Yankees will run out when the game is resumed, here’s what we got right now.
The Yankees' lineup for the resumed game features two changes. Brett Gardner, a pinch hitter when he appeared in the sixth, will be replaced:— Coley Harvey (@ColeyHarvey) June 18, 2018
Gardner PH (will be replaced)
Brett Gardner will likely be replaced by a pitcher, and is seemingly unavailable anyway.
For the Nationals, Howie Kendrick was in the starting lineup, but has since had season-ending surgery. However, they’ve since gotten back Daniel Murphy, as we saw when they came to the Bronx.
The game will resume on YES at 5 eastern. Go Yankees, go baseball.
