More importantly, can the Yankees close out the season 7-2?
In other words, the Yankees tragic number, today, is five.
New York plays San Fran for three while Tampa plays Baltimore for four. Then the Rays and Yankees face each other for three.
If the Yankees sweep the Giants and the Rays split with the O’s, that would put the Yankees within two of the Rays going into that three-game series at Yankee Stadium.
Can New York sweep the Giants? The Yankees are 5-9 in their last 14 games. The Giants are 8-3 in their last 11 games.
