The Yankees host the White Sox, the worst team in the league

Riding a wave of recent success, the New York Yankees host the Chicago White Sox on Friday in the first game of a three-game series. The Yankees have won four straight games, including a sweep of the Minnesota Twins, and are looking to maintain their dominance over the White Sox.

The Yankees cooperated

All cylinders are firing

The Yankees are looking hot, leading the Twins by just one run in the three game series. Their pitching staff has been impressive, allowing three runs or less in eight of their last 12 games. Clark Schmidt had an impressive performance, allowing just three hits in eight innings in Thursday’s 5-0 victory. Contributions of key players

Anthony Volpe hit a home run in the first inning on Friday. Volpe has now extended his hitting streak to nine games. Aaron Judge has also had a good season, hitting .452 over the past 12 games and hitting multiple doubles in recent games.

It’s been a strong month for the Yankees

The Yankees’ rotation has been impressive this month, posting a 2.60 ERA in 14 games and a 3.12 ERA on the season. Catcher Austin Wells said it best: “This year, we put together a good lineup with good results.”

Chicago White Sox new job

The White Sox started off the season with a 6-26 record, but have recently shown signs of life, posting an 8-4 record in their last 12 games. They won back-to-back series against the Cleveland Cavaliers and Washington Nationals, with their pitching staff trying to give up no more than three runs in five wins.

Key players: Pham and Benintendi

Tommy Pham and Andrew Benintendi played key roles in the White Sox’s success. Pham has hit .319 in 14 of 17 games since joining the team. Korey Lee had three hits and an RBI in a 2-0 win over Washington on Wednesday.

Nestor Cortez VS Nestor Cortez Mike Clevinger

Nestor Cortez will start for the Yankees, who are looking to bounce back from a tough game against Tampa Bay. Despite Cortez’s struggles recently, he has been dominant at home, posting a 1.59 ERA in four starts. He started against the White Sox and went 4-0 with a 2.63 ERA.

Mike Clevinger took the mound for the White Sox. He had a rough start this season, posting a 5.40 ERA in his first two games. However, he showed improvement in his last outing against Cleveland, increasing his pitch count and allowing just one run in 4 2/3 innings. Clevinger had a 3.77 ERA in six starts against the Yankees.


Yankees catcher Austin Wells praised the team’s consistency, saying, “I think this is a great lineup of players who work hard every day and can always be counted on.” Tommy Van of the White Sox emphasized the need for continued improvement, saying: “They pitched very well. However, there is still a lot of room for improvement.”


As the Yankees begin their seven-game homestand with the goal of continuing their winning streak against the White Sox, it’s a positive sign despite a poor early performance. The lead actors are doing well and the acting is good, this promises to be an exciting series.
