Yankees Return Home After Final Long Road Trip

Yankees went 6-4 on latest road trip.

The Yankees went on a 10-game road trip from July 24 to August 2. The road trip began in Minnesota, as the Yankees faced off against the Twins. In the first game of the series, the Twins won easily by a score of 10-1. It looked like it was going to be a terrible series once the Yankees trailed 5-0 in the fourth inning in the second game.

Thanks to three home runs in the game from Alex Rodriguez, as well as a go-ahead three-run home run by John Ryan Murphy, the Yankees completed the comeback to win the game, 8-5. After that game, the Yankees went on to win the next three games, including a 21-5 whopping of the Texas Rangers last Tuesday. After the three-game winning streak, the Yankees lost the last two games at Texas to split the four game series.

In Chicago, against the White Sox, they won the first game by a score of 13-6. After losing the second game 8-2, the Yankees took the rubber match.

The Yankees finish the 10-game road trip with a record of 6-4. Their longest win streak was four, while their longest losing streak was at two, which were the last two games of the four-game series against the Rangers.

The Yankees also outscored their opponents on the trip by a combined score of 78-53. That is a big margin between their runs and their opponents’ runs. The Yankees scored double digits twice on the road trip, while only giving up double digits in one game- the first one.

The Yankees return home after almost two weeks of being on the road to face their biggest rival, the Boston Red Sox. Masahiro Tanaka (7-4, 3.84 ERA, 84 SO) will go up against rookie Henry Owens, who the Red Sox are calling up from Triple-A Pawtucket. According to, Owens is the #5 overall prospect. The Yankees will throw a top prospect of their own in the second game of the series on Wednesday when Luis Severino takes the mound.

After the Red Sox, the Yankees welcome their AL East rivals the Toronto Blue Jays, who recently acquired Troy Tulowitzki from the Colorado Rockies and David Price from the Tigers. After the weekend with Toronto, the Yankees are back on the road again to face the Cleveland Indians.
