The Yankees got a much-needed boost when they rolled into Oakland — well, after getting punched in the face in the form of a 2-1 loss first. Back-to-back days of double-digit offense surrounding a perfect game has the team riding high into St. Louis, where another struggling team awaits. The Cardinals aren’t as bad as the A’s are, but given the expectations of the two franchises they certainly have been more disappointing. Given the state of the Yankees themselves, there’s no better time to capitalize on an opponent that can’t get out of their own way.
