The New York Yankees welcome That the Athletics to Yankee Stadium after the Yankees were Caught in Oakland last week.
The Yankees did not look interested in enjoying the Athletics and it showed on the scoreboard. They dropped all 3 matches before finding success shut and turning around. It wasn’t their very best effort, since 17-9 outscored them in 3 games. Frustration turned to glee fast, however. The Yankees were winners of three games against the Dodgers in two following their visit to Oakland.
The Yankees followed that string up using a sweep of the Seattle Mariners. Back in the home, they will face a more challenging opponent at the Athletics this weekend. They just got caught by the A’s not so long ago, and they are familiar with exactly what they are capable of accomplishing. They had a letdown against the Giants with a couple of losses in a quick interleague collection, and then came back to win three of four games against the Royals most recently.
After the past week, the Yankees must know by now not to take the Athletics lightly. Since they seem to fend off the Rays from the AL to get a spot in the Wild Card Game, They’re playing for something. If the game was tonight, they’d need to go to Cleveland. Having to travel almost to the other to a single side of the country and play in a different time zone would give 1 team a significant benefit in that case. Brett Anderson will find a chance to make it four wins in a row across the Yankees for the A’s. CC Sabathia is expected to counter for the Yanks.
