The Yankees are riding high coming off a series win against the A’s and yesterday’s off-day. They went 5-1 last week against two quality opponents in the Blue Jays and A’s, and all 5 wins were of the comeback variety. The Bronx Bombers find themselves 3rd in the AL East at 38-33 just 4 games back in the loss column behind Tampa and Boston.

They now begin a stretch of 13 games in 13 days starting with a three game series against the Royals. As much fun as comeback wins are, let’s get out to a 5-0 lead in the 1st tonight and never look back, mmkay?
