Yesterday certainly took the shine off of it a bit, but the Yankees had a successful road trip over the past week. They took care of business against Cleveland and Baltimore, but failed to deliver the decisive blow in both series, walking away with a 5-3 record. Closing out series that the team has the upper hand in would be a great next step forward, and perhaps they can make that leap this weekend. It definitely helps when you can start a series by throwing out Gerrit Cole.
