In their last game against the Minnesota Twins, the Yankees fared really badly. They were destroyed 6-1 on Wednesday, losing for the first time to the Twins in a span of nine nice years (home series only). Surely, Twins have improved — especially through players like Jose Berrios. But Yankees have fallen way behind. They have some serious catching up to do. You can almost feel it in your bones.
With their recent bad performance, baseball lovers hope for a revival in the Yankee spirit. And this match against a tough opponent might well be the chance where it finally happens! There are reasons behind this, like the practice times and the ill factors that stopped the Yankees from performing well being removed.
Wednesday, July 19, the Seattle Mariners thrashed Houston Astros 5-1 as James Paxton, the Mariners starting pitcher, pitched 7 innings giving up just one run and a whopping 7 strikeouts. The Mariners are now back at .500 this MLB season.
With Paxton on top of his game (Mariners manager Scott Servais, “It’s exactly what the doctor ordered. He was on top of his game.”) — the Seattle Mariners are a formidable opponent for anyone right now.
But even with Paxton performing so good in his last match, you can never be completely sure that he will give the same performance yet again. Perhaps the Mariners are strong on offense, but they can be caught off-guard if the Yankees get overpowered.
