The Yankees didn’t come through Tuesday’s big win over the Metswithout concern. Worry has to be mounting about Luis Severino, who got lit up again and put the Yankees in a big hole. But the offense showed signs of life, with Anthony Volpe and DJ LeMahieu at least hinting that they could be pulling out of slumps. Will it last? Who knows, but the Yankees at least stemmed the bleeding for a day with a thrilling win.
On the site ahead of the second and final game in Queens, Madison takes us through Tuesday’s AL action, and Peter writes the latest entry in the 1998 Yankees diary.
