Deivi Garcia pitched four scoreless innings, but then gave up runs in the fifth. He got out of a bases-loaded jam in the first.

With Aaron Judge not pulling a ball for a HR this year, and with the struggles James Paxton has had, you wonder if the injuries that put them on the IL are still affecting them. That can go for other players as well, and is a concern regarding guys on the IL or even those not on the IL but day-to-day as far as how they will be when they come back (Stanton, Severino, Betances, Voit, Gardner, LeMahieu)…    just a thought.

The Yanks were off yesterday, but Tampa Bay beat Boston, so the Yanks (68-39) are 7 up on Tampa Bay (9 in the loss column) and 10 1/2 up on Boston (12 in the loss column). They have a 4-game series against Boston this weekend, with a day/night separate admission DH on Saturday.
