The stars have aligned, folks. Tyler Wade is in the starting lineup and Randy is handling tonight’s recap. In case you somehow aren’t in on the joke, maybe listen to our podcast?

Tonight’s the last of the Yankees and Phillies four game set before the Bombers head down to Tampa Bay. And similar to yesterday, Aaron Boone is providing more rest for his usual starters, especially because the Yankees-Rays series will include four games in three days. Tonight, Aaron Judge and DJ LeMahieu get a breather. With that, here are the lineups:

  • Some roster news: the Yankees selected RHP Nick Tropeano from its player pool and transferred Tommy Kahnle to the 60-day injured list. Tropeano is a local product from West Islip and played college ball at Stony Brook. He’s a starter by trade so he can give a few innings in relief if need be.
  • In case you missed it, the Yankees optioned Miguel Andújar, Thairo Estrada, and Nick Nelson today too.

This one starts at 6:05 p.m. EDT. You can watch on YES and listen on WFAN or WADO.
