The finish line draws ever closer, and the Yankees continue to surge. They dispatched the Blue Jays easily in the first-game of this crucial three-game set, and they’ll have every chance to cinch the series tonight as they’ll send Gerrit Cole to the mound. That said, he’ll face off with a formidable opponent in José Berrios, and Cole himself hasn’t looked sharp since coming off the IL. In any event, the Yankees will still feel confident that they can extend their run to eight straight games behind their ace.
On the site, Jesse breaks down the seasons of the Yankees’ midseason bullpen additions, Joely Rodríguez, Clay Holmes, and Wandy Peralta, and Josh looks at how Cole has pitched the Blue Jays. Esteban also examines what Mike King has shown, Emma adds Bronxie to the list of Yankee good luck charms, and Jon remembers one of the biggest regular-season home runs in Yankee history.
