Game 57: Domingo en sábado

The Yankees took the series opener with the Red Sox and have a chance to step on Boston’s collective throat by taking the series tonight. The Sox sit 8.5 games back and the Bombers need to extend that past where Boston can make it up.

On the hill for his first real start against the Sox is Domingo German. He somewhat served as the opener, or maybe just the first pitcher in a bullpen game, at the end of last season. Either way, this is a tremendous test for German, who has faced the Twins, Rays and little else in terms of contending teams. Thursday’s rainout prevented him from a chance at 10 wins before June.

Notes: The Red Sox placed Steve Pearce on the 10-day IL after he left yesterday’s game with back spasms. They called up Sam Travis to take his place.

Editorial Note: I’m going to be at the game tonight, so the game reaction and DoTF will be late. Thanks for your patience!
