Could Gio Urshela be Trouble for Miguel Andujar in 2020?
After a heartbreaking season ending injury for third basemen Miguel Andujar, the Yankees were left to think on their feet. Who would replace Andujar? Many thought DJ LeMahieu would fill that spot while Gleyber Torres played second and Troy Tulowitzki played shortstop (replacing Didi Gregorius while on the IL), and for the most part that is how the lineup was set. But true to the 2019 Yankees season, when Tulowitzki went down to the IL, what were the Yankees going to do? Thankfully the Yankees had a man named Gio Urshela!
The Yankees Will be Very Tough to Beat in October
The New York Yankees set a couple of MLB team home run records against the Baltimore Orioles in a 3-game sweep, while they also tied the major league record with 16 HRs in a 3-game series.
The Yankees have hit an astonishing 52 home runs against Orioles’ pitching this this season, including 43 at Camden Yards (where they are 10–0), with 4 more games a Yankee Stadium next week.
Orioles For Dinner
The Yankees currently stand 10 games ahead of the Tampa Bay Rays, giving them a more than comfortable lead in the AL East as the the playoff push comes into sight. While the Rays are still in a position to compete for the Wild Card, the lowly Baltimore Orioles sit 37 games back with one of the worst records in the Majors (38–76)
During the 2019 season, the Yankees have cooked the Orioles, home and away! At Oriole Park at Camden Yards, the Bombers slammed 16 home runs, which tied the major league record in a 3-game series. Many times throughout the series, you could hear “Let’s go Yankees!” from the Yankee fans who traveled 200 miles to support their championship contenders.
