Even after Thursday’s heartbreaking 9-6 walk-off loss, the Bronx Bombers still have the best record in baseball. More good news, the Yankees still have a comfy five-game lead in the American League East. Better news, the team is strong as ever ahead of a weekend tilt with the White Sox.
Banged-up Chicago should prove another series win for the Yankees, particularly with Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton running hot. Based on the Baltimore series, New York should keep rolling so long as a few concerns are addressed quickly.
