Game 1 Saturday May 25th

first game of doubleheader

Pitcher Preview

It will be a match up between two south paws. J.A. Happ will go for New York while Danny Duffy will go for Kansas City. This has the potential to be a pitchers duel as Happ has started to look better after an early season swoon. Duffy has looked good all season and will be a tough match up for the Yanks.

Keys to the game

Be Patient: Duffy has had some trouble with his commands this season. So the Yanks should make a point on taking pitches and trying to get into good hitters counts.

Keep the ball down: Happ has had a huge problem with the long ball this season, He has allowed 13 home runs already this season. If he can locate better and keep the ball in the park he'll be set up for more success.

Game 3 Sunday May 26th

Pitcher Preview

Domingo German will take the mound for the Yanks and he's been the ace of the Yankee staff this season! German will match up with Jorge Lopez, Lopez has not had much success this year. He has an ERA over 6 and hasn't won a single start to this point of the season. German could win his 10th start of the season if everything goes well!


Keys to the game

Just pitch: German has been pitching as good as you could ever expect there is nothing he should change just go out and pitch!

Keep the same approach: The Yankee offense has been great and whatever they've been doing to succeed just keep it up and everything will work out!
