The grudge match has begun, and the Yankees have drawn first blood. A 9-3 victory looks like a blowout in the box score, but it was a close affair that ran down to the wire before Giancarlo Stanton remembered that the game was being played in Slam Diego. The Yankees offense is rolling in this postseason, and last night’s performance was another sign that the switch has clearly been flipped.
Now, the task at hand is to keep it going. Deivi García will make his postseason debut with a chance to put the Yankees on the brink of an ALCS berth, and he’ll be matched up against Tyler Glasnow. If the rookie pitcher can keep his team in it while going two or three times through the order, the Yankees should be in great position to take over this series.
There will be a full slate of games alongside the Yankees and Rays today, so get ready for a fun day of baseball. When gametime finally arrives, here is how you can catch the action.
