After a series-opening win for the New York Yankees, Luis Severino takes the hill as he looks to start a brand-new winning streak.
The New York Yankees are back on the winning track after taking two losses at home to the Texas Rangers and look to extend their winning streak to two against the Chicago White Sox at Guaranteed Rate Field on Tuesday night.
Luis Severino will make his 15th start of the season coming off a loss on Thursday at Yankee Stadium against the Los Angeles Angels. The 23-year-old allowed a season-high 6 earned runs over six innings of work as he watched his career-best eight-start unbeaten streak snapped.
Going for the White Sox will be a starter who was constantly named in Yankee offseason trade rumors, Jose Quintana, who’s making it seem like passing up on him was a good thing.
In 15 starts, the lefty owns a 4-8 record with a 4.69 ERA featuring 88 strikeouts over 88.1 innings of work for a career-best strikeout rate of nine. Against the Minnesota Twins in his last start, he registered 6.2 innings of shutout ball — the first time all season Quintana did not allow an earned run — and recorded nine strikeouts.
#Yankees lineup: Ellsbury, Headley, Judge, Sanchez, Didi, Austin DH, Torreyes 4, Romine 3, Refsnyder 7

Player To Watch: Didi Gregorius
Not only is the Yankee shortstop facing a southpaw in Jose Quintana, who he’s 3-for-3 against, but he’s facing a southpaw. Against left-handed pitchers this season, Gregorius owns a .364/.417/.455 slash line with one home run against them in 44 at-bats.
All The Wade Up:
The 22-year-old has hit safely in 21 of his last 25 games entering Monday for the RailRiders, going 34-for-93 (.366) with eight extra-base hits and 11 stolen bases. On June 23 against the Pawtucket Paw Sox, he became the first RailRider to steal three bases in a single game this season.
This Day In Yankees’ History:
On June 27, 1936, the Yankees hit six home runs off St. Louis Browns’ starter Tommy Thomas in a 10-6 win at St. Louis. The six homers off one pitcher set a club record and tied a modern Major League record that still stands today (eight occurrences).
