The New York Yankees go for the sweep of the Seattle Mariners in a Thursday matinee.
The New York Yankees struck early again against the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday night, then held a one-run lead thanks to Chad Green’s strong ninth inning. Aaron Judge also hit his 20th home run of the year as an added bonus.
The Tampa Bay Rays and Toronto Blue Jays won, so the Yankees are unfortunately still fourth in the AL East. However, the Boston Red Sox lost, so New York only trails by 8.5 games.
