The Yankees finally took a game against a team over .500, and now they have a quick turnaround to take the series outright. The Bombers are also getting some big reinforcements for the ballgame today: Miguel Andujar returns from the IL after initially fearing that his season would be over, and DJ LeMahieu is back in the lineup after being sidelined several games with a knee injury. Gary Sanchez will also remain in the lineup after his pair of home runs last night, but get a half-day off in the DH slot while Austin Romine catches.
J.A Happ will be on the mound for the Yankees, and he has righted the ship from his early struggles. The 36-year-old has pitched into the seventh inning in each of his last three starts, including seven shutout in his last start against the Giants. The Yankees will need more of the same after the bullpen had to cover six innings of work follow James Paxton’s departure yesterday. Opposing Happ will be Jake Odorizzi, who is coming off his best start of the season Monday against the Astros. Odorizzi pitched seven shutout innings, his longest outing since going six innings in his season debut.
First pitch is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. EST. You can catch the action live on YES or MLB Network (for out-of-market viewers), listen in on WFAN 660/101.9 FM and WADO 1280, or stream the game on ESPN+.
