Game Thread: New York Yankees @ Arizona Diamondbacks 5/18

Ladies and gentleman it is now game time between the New York Yankees and the Arizona Diamondbacks as these two teams finish off their three-game set inside of Chase Field. It’s been an interesting series full of good pitching performances, timely hitting and pitchers who have no business hitting and it all comes to an end tonight in the finale. In the contest tonight the Yankees will send Nathan Eovaldi to the mound as he continues to “eovolve” while the Diamondbacks counter with Shelby Miller. The game will be played at 8:40 pm ET inside of Chase Field in Arizona and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB TV.

The Yankees head west to take on the Oakland Athletics for a three-game series before an off day and a travel day back to the Bronx and Yankee Stadium.

One more time and one more pitcher that we just need to hope strikes out every single at bat so he doesn’t have to run the bases. I hate interleague play, can you tell? Go Yankees!


  1. Not bad for a guy that had the nickname of Water Pistol! Hard work and learning how to pitch to hitters helps/follow the catchers lead. Hopefully, he can continue as he did tonight instead of one good one and one so-so game.

    1. He's showing loads of improvement and growth, I just wish he would put it ALL together and be dominant. Not just tease us on a start by start basis.

    2. True Daniel, but I have faith in talent and hard work! No need to have him as good as a Number one, number 2 is good enough...but number one is or could be in the future.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
