After sweeping the Toronto Blue Jays on the road, the New York Yankees come home to face the red-hot Oakland A’s.
The New York Yankees not only turned their second triple play of the season on Thursday, but pulled off a much-needed sweep of the rival Toronto Blue Jays. Now, the Bronx Bombers head home for a weekend series with the Oakland A’s, who are 12-2 in June.
