The New York Yankees need a big win when they really can’t afford any more lifeless losses.

The New York Yankees just can’t catch a break and are on a fresh three-game losing streak following Monday’s 8-0 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. Now, they look to their ace Gerrit Cole to get them back in the win column.

The Yankees remain in second place in the AL East, but are now 8.5 games behind the Tampa Bay Rays. By nothing short of a miracle, they hold a slim half-game lead for the top Wild Card spot.
