New York Yankees vs. New York Mets: Luis Severino vs. Jacob deGrom

Aces abound in the Bronx tonight! The New York Yankees and New York Mets will cap off the Subway Series tonight after last month’s rainout postponed the rubber match of a split series. The Yankees lost the first game 7-5 as Noah Syndergaard shut down the Yankees, but the Bombers bounced back with a nail-biting 7-6 win the next day. Masahiro Tanaka would have started this game last month, but the rain has set up a duel between Luis Severino and Jacob deGrom for New York supremacy tonight. Though Severino will surely be up to the challenge of battling deGrom, he has struggled since the...

Bad pitching and shaky defense doom Yankees in lopsided loss

Bad pitching and shaky defense doom Yankees in lopsided loss

Masahiro Tanaka didn’t have it tonight, but neither did any reliever not named Zach Britton. After winning four games in a row, the Yankees snapped that streak tonight thanks to bad pitching and shaky defense. Masahiro Tanaka had pitched really well since coming off of the disabled list in early July, but that ended tonight, too. Yankees relievers didn’t fare much better. The offense attempted to claw their way back into the game. However, the Rangers just kept pulling further and further ahead. Neither team was able to get anything going through the first three innings. It was the...

New York Yankees vs. Texas Rangers: Masahiro Tanaka vs. Mike Minor

Let’s make it five wins in a row! The Yankees have followed up their brutal four-game loss against the Red Sox with four straight victories. After sweeping the White Sox in Chicago, they started this 11-game homestand on the right foot with a win against the Rangers last night. They’ll send Masahiro Tanaka to the mound tonight to try and keep the win streak alive. Tanaka has looked great since coming off of the disabled list in July. He surrendered just one run over his last 19.2 innings pitched. The right-hander gave up four runs to Texas when he faced them back in May, including two...

Masahiro Tanaka will be crucial for the Yankees down the stretch

Masahiro Tanaka will be crucial for the Yankees down the stretch

Tanaka has been strong since his return from the DL, and the Yankees will need him at his best for the stretch run. Masahiro Tanaka turned in another strong outing on Sunday night, allowing just one run through 4 2⁄3 innings against Boston’s potent offense. The result of the game (and the series) was hardly what Aaron Boone and the Yankees had hoped for, but Tanaka’s recent performance has to be an encouraging sight for a Yankees’ rotation that is searching for consistency. Sunday’s start wasn’t exactly vintage Tanaka, as he allowed six hits and wiggled his way out of multiple...

Yankees fall in extra innings, get swept by Red Sox to cap off atrocious weekend

Yankees fall in extra innings, get swept by Red Sox to cap off atrocious weekend

Yankees rally late, but fall to Boston as Aroldis Chapman blows the save. Starters David Price and Masahiro Tanaka went toe-to-toe, but New York ultimately lost the battle of the bullpens tonight. The Yankees rallied late to take a 4-1 lead, but Aroldis Chapman blew the save — aided by a Miguel Andujar error — and they lost 5-4 in ten innings. New York was nine outs away from getting the broom, when the Empire finally struck back. With the Yankees trailing 1-0, Brett Gardner led off the seventh with a single and moved up when Austin Romine walked, ending Price’s night. Reliever Heath...

Yankees vs. Red Sox: Masahiro Tanaka vs. David Price

The Yankees seek to avoid the four-game sweep at Fenway Park. The Yankees head into tonight’s series finale trailing Boston by 8.5 games in the AL East race, while leading Oakland by three for the top Wild Card berth. The Bombers have only been swept in a four-game series (or longer) at Fenway five times (2016, 1990, ‘69, ‘59, ‘44) since the park opened in 1912. They aim to keep it that way behind Masahiro Tanaka (9-2, 3.84) this evening. He will be opposed by David Price (11-6, 3.97 ERA). Pitching matchup Tanaka hasn’t lost since April 17th, going 7-0 with six no-decisions since....

This trade season was unique, and it hurt the Yankees

Most every trade deadline features a rental ace on the market. This year, that option was unavailable, and it hampered the Yankees. It’s been said that there are three parts to a baseball season. In the first, you figure out what your team needs. In the second, you work to get your team what it needs. And in the third, you fight like hell for the postseason. The Yankees found out what they needed early. Jordan Montgomery went down for the year, Sonny Gray imploded, and Domingo German proved unable to replace either. Moreover, with Masahiro Tanaka struggling with hamstring injuries, it was...
