Yankees Weekend Series Preview- Blue Jays

Beating up on Playoff teams is GREAT

The New York Yankees continued to ROLL over teams that are going to make the Postseason this year after WINNING the series over the Atlanta Braves this past week. The Braves and the Yankees had the BEST winning percentages in their respective leagues going into the series, so the Yankees WON a HYPOTHETICAL World Series in the FIRST week of July. The series against the Braves was the TOUGHEST series for the Bombers for a WHILE as they only have EIGHT remaining games against GOOD teams till the month of May. Their EASY schedule starts tonight in the same place where they STARTED their season, in Toronto against the Blue Jays this weekend.

Yankees- Braves Series Recap-

Game 1- Domingo German got the ball for the Yankees and he was NOT great. The game was TIED at THREE going into Extras, something that the Yankees are REALLY BAD in. The Braves had a CHEAP home run in Extras to WIN the first game of the series.

Game 2- Johnny Lasagna took the mound for the Yankees in the SECOND game of the series and after a scoreless FIRST inning, Aaron Hicks, who has been HOT lately, continued to be HOT.

The Yankees jumped out to a 6-0 lead thanks to Home Runs by Hicks and Kyle Higgy, but the Braves managed to pull within 6-5. Giancarlo Stanton has been TRASH at times this season but he is on the SAME pace as last season, when he won the NL MVP, he is used to beating up on the Braves while he was with the Marlins and that continued on Tuesday Night.

Aroldis Chapman held on to get the save and remain the BEST reliever in baseball and helped the Yankees get a 8-5 WIN and set up a RUBBER game on Wednesday afternoon.

Game 3- It was 4th of July afternoon baseball in the Bronx for the Braves and Yankees looking to WIN the series. CC Sabathia took the mound for the Yankees and he has been GREAT this season and that continued on Wednesday afternoon. The Yankees had a 1-0 lead before Stanton continued to remain HOT.

Kyle Higgy hit ANOTHER home run, which has THIRD of his career and he has only THREE hits. Aaron Judge has become the Bash Brother of Stanton after hitting a Home Run in TWO of the games this week which helped the Yankees WIN 6-2 and take the series over the Braves.

This week was overall a POSITIVE for the Yankees but they got some DISTURBING news after the series when STAR rookie, Gleyber Torres went on the DL with a Hamstring issue. All signs are pointing towards Torres RETURNING to the team after the All Star Break so it is NOT the end of the world for the Yankees just yet.

The Yankees take on the Blue Jays this weekend which starts a SEVEN game stretch for them that they should CRUISE in. The Blue Jays are TRASH so the Bombers should ROLL this weekend before heading SOUTH to Baltimore to take on the Orioles, who are the WORST team in baseball.
