The New York Yankees head to Houston for their last series before the All-Star Break.
The New York Yankees have no time to feel sorry for getting one-hit by the Seattle Mariners in Thursday’s series finale. The Bronx Bombers still won the series, and now must shift their attention to the Houston Astros. This weekend’s three-game series marks the team’s first trip to Minute Maid Park since the 2019 ALCS, when Jose Altuve’s walk-off homer in Game 6 ended the series.
The Yankees remain in fourth place, nine games behind the Boston Red Sox.
