The New York Yankees go for a much-needed three-game sweep over the last-place Texas Rangers.

The big bats showed up once again for the New York Yankees in Tuesday night’s 7-1 win over the Texas Rangers. Aaron Judge, Joey Gallo, and Giancarlo Stanton all homered as the Bronx Bombers continue to fight for a Wild Card berth.

Now, they’ll turn to Corey Kluber to complete the sweep. Kluber threw a no-hitter against the Rangers in May. Can lightning strike twice in 2021?

Both the Blue Jays and Red Sox won, so New York remains a half-game back of that highly-coveted second AL Wild Card spot.
