Yankees homer in Major League Baseball record 28th consecutive game

Yankees homer in Major League Baseball record 28th consecutive game

For many Yankees fans, Max Scherzer of the Nationals represents the kind of "big fish" that would put the Bombers above and beyond their competition, but those around the Nats seem convinced that Mad Max is going nowhere.

The Blue Jays are 11-30 in their last 41 Wednesday games and 4-11 in their last 15 in game three of a series.

Boone initially said Stanton's MRI did not reveal any damage beyond a knee bruise, but a secondary exam of the knee and the imaging by the team's doctor led to the PCL strain diagnosis.

We hear firsthand accounts of the conditions at some Border Patrol detention centers. "This is only the tip of the iceberg". Democrats say that is part of the reason for what they call chaos in President Trump's immigration strategy.

Paxton will offer his throwing arm in that effort when he takes the mound on Wednesday against the Blue Jays. He was playing in just his sixth game back after an IL trip cost him more than two months earlier in the season. The fourth homer came from former Jay Edwin Encarnacion in the eighth and stood up as the game victor. "I am built for this", the right-hander said of pitching under pressure. "I think it kind of explains the pain he was in when he came in". "Frustrated for him knowing how much he's worked to get back and the couple of setbacks he's had along the way. We got to deal with it and hope to get him right at some point". Between the London Series and the All-Star break, the Yankees will play only eight games in the next 15 days. Aaron Judge returned from his oblique issue last week, plus the Yankees have Clint Frazier in Triple-A.

With Stanton once again headed to the shelf for a yet-unspecified period of time, the Yankees will likely lean on Brett Gardner, Aaron Hicks and Aaron Judge as the primary outfielders with newly acquired Edwin Encarnacion lining up as the primary designated hitter. If we're able to avoid a serious injury I'm not anxious about it. "Hopefully this is a small bump in the road".

The Yankees have won five of Paxton's last six home starts and are 7-2 in his last nine outings overall. Despite his injury - and all their other injuries - the Yankees are 51-28 following Wednesday's win and have a season-high 6 1/2-game lead in the AL East.
