Make it back-to-back comeback victories against a division rival. The Yankees topped the Blue Jays tonight, 3-2. Gerrit Cole was terrific in spite of no longer using whatever concoction he previously used on the baseball, which was great to see. He even touched 102 MPH on the radar gun in his final inning of work. Also fun: Gary Sánchez’s pinch-hit, two-run homer in the seventh that put the Yankees ahead for good. To the takeaways:

Randy and Rohan return in the middle of Randy’s move to discuss what’s been an up -and-down stretch of play for the Yankees. The duo break down what went wrong over the weekend against the Red Sox and whether any negative trends are concerning. They also talk about the recent hot stretches from Gary Sánchez and Miguel Andújar and the consistent dominance from Aaron Judge. They also discuss positive signs in the underlying metrics that have led to success about the Twins. They close with a look ahead to the trade deadline and which players they Yankees might target to bolster the roster.

The Yankees’ four-game losing streak is over. New York beat the Twins 8-4 in the first of three at Minnesota. It’s really too bad that the Twins aren’t in the AL East. The Yankees would never lose the division. Anyway, let’s get to tonight’s takeaways.
Well that was a terrible loss. Up 4-0 after a half inning and 5-2 entering the bottom of the third, the Yankees lost this one, 10-6. Jordan Montgomery couldn’t finish off a number of Orioles in spite of inducing plenty of soft contact, and the Yankees’ offense went down meekly after the first inning. Baltimore scored nine runs with two outs. Frustrating!
Even though this is another series win (and five straight series victories), the Yankees are now 1-6 in games with an opportunity to sweep a series (note: I left out the two-game set against Atlanta as an opportunity in today’s game thread). Sure feels like a lot of these series finale sweep attempt losses have been ugly ones, too. With that, let’s get to the takeaways.
This one was over early. Staked with a 5-0 lead after the 2nd inning, hopefully most of you were able to enjoy this beautiful Saturday evening at peace knowing that the Yankees would once again beat the lowly Orioles.
A 2-run single by Gary Sánchez (more on him later) gave the Yankees a 3 run lead before Domingo Germán even toed the rubber tonight. With this 8-2 victory, the Bombers are now a season high five games over .500 at 22-17 and have secured another series win, their 5th in a row. Here are the takeaways from tonight’s laugher.
