Struggling Marlins try to shut down surging Yankees

The New York Yankees spent part of Monday afternoon wearing protective glasses to look at a solar eclipse above Yankee Stadium, and then they spent the rest of the day continuing their hot start. After matching their best 11-game start in team history, the Yankees will shoot for a fourth straight win Tuesday night when they continue a three-game series against the visiting Miami Marlins. The Yankees are 9-2 for the eighth time in team

Yankees look to stay hot, face struggling Marlins

The New York Yankees began their home schedule by taking batting practice during a brief earthquake before getting blanked 3-0 by the Toronto Blue Jays in their home opener.

The Yankees have

Yankees face Jays, look to end recent frustration

In the eighth inning of his New York Yankees home debut on Friday, Juan Soto flung his bat in frustration after striking out for the second time. After a hot start, Soto has just one hit in his past 16 at-bats, and the newest Yankees slugger hopes to avoid another rough game Saturday night when New York hosts the Toronto Blue Jays. The Yankees are 6-2, but both losses have been shutouts. On Friday, they

‘Fired up’ Yankees set for home opener vs. Blue Jays

The last time the New York Yankees were seen at Yankee Stadium, they were playing a makeup game in front of a smattering of fans the day after being eliminated from playoff contention for the first time since 2016. So far, the attempt to forget about the disappointment of last season is off to a good start. The Yankees will try to maintain their early roll on Friday afternoon when they play their home opener

Yankees look for bounce-back effort in series finale vs. D-backs

The New York Yankees finally lost a game, and the effort definitely wasn’t one for the memory books. The Yankees will aim to get back to winning on Wednesday afternoon when they look to claim the finale of a three-game series from the Arizona Diamondbacks in Phoenix. New York opened the season with five straight victories for the first time since 1992, but there wasn’t much good about Tuesday night’s 7-0 loss to Arizona. The

Zac Gallen, Diamondbacks aim to upend unbeaten Yankees

Zac Gallen recently said his dream opponent to face in the World Series is the New York Yankees. Only time will tell if that happens this fall but the Arizona ace right-hander will see the New York hitters up close Tuesday night when the Diamondbacks host the Yankees in Phoenix. Gallen’s choice is tied to the 2001 World Series in which Arizona defeated New York in seven games. “For me that was probably the first

Yankees, Diamondbacks clash after opening-weekend success

The Arizona Diamondbacks will host the New York Yankees on Monday night in an early season interleague matchup, a meeting between two confident clubs through their first series of the year. New York enters play as a winner of its first four games, earning a sweep in its season-opening series in Houston over the Astros. It is the first 4-0 start for the Yankees since 2003 and just the fourth since 1950. Arizona, for its

Yankees bid to complete four-game sweep of Astros

The New York Yankees have received a bit more clarity regarding veteran third baseman DJ LeMahieu, who was diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture in his right foot following an MRI taken on Friday. LeMahieu opened the season on the injured list after sustaining the injury on March 16 by fouling a pitch off his foot during spring training. He was diagnosed with a bone bruise before additional imaging revealed the fracture. Given the uncertainty surrounding

After pair of losses to Yankees, Astros aim to move into win column

Yankees left-hander Carlos Rodon didn’t deliver a dominant performance in the first start of his second season with New York, but the resilience he showed by pitching into the fifth inning played a role in the Yankees having an opportunity to rally for a second consecutive game. Rodon gave up one run over 4 1/3 innings despite allowing five hits and three walks in the Yankees’ 7-1 victory on Friday. He proved adept at keeping

Healthy Carlos Rodon set for ’24 debut as Yanks face Astros

While the game situation wasn’t necessarily ideal for new Houston closer Josh Hader to make his Astros debut, his performance most certainly made a favorable impression. Hader, the Astros’ notable free-agent acquisition this offseason, struck out the side on 13 pitches in the ninth inning of a 5-4 home loss to the New York Yankees on Opening Day Thursday. The teams resume their four-game series Friday night, with New York left-hander Carlos Rodon opposing Houston
