Yankees Return Home On A Roll
The Yankees return to the Stadium tonight to start a 7 game homestand fresh off a sweep of the Mets in the subway series over the weekend, and riding a 5 game winning streak overall. They play 3 with Seattle before an important 4 game series July 4th weekend with division rival Toronto. Currently the Yankees sit in 2nd place in the American League East, 3.5 games behind the hated Red Sox. The divison is tightening up as the defending AL Champs Tampa Bay Rays have started to heat up and are only 1.5 behind the Yankees in 3rd place.
Joba Chamberlain will be on the mound tonight to start the homestand. Hes had an inconsistent year but pitched very well in his last start in a win against Atlanta, so he’ll look to build on that. Applause has tickets to all Yankee games this week and throughout the season, go give us a call today to see the Yankees in action at beautiful New Yankee Stadium. What better way to spend a warm summer afternoon or evening than at the ballpark?
