The New York Yankees are back at it again here in the Bronx and this time the Yankees and Yankee Stadium play host to the Chicago White Sox for a three-game set. The Yankees have been dominant at home thus far this season and hopefully the White Sox can help New York keep the good times rolling here in the Bronx in 2017. The first matchup has me excited because of the pitching matchup as a pair of southpaws take the mound in Jordan Montgomery for the Yankees and Derek Holland for the Chicago White Sox.
Montgomery will make his second MLB start tonight after shutting down the Tampa Bay Rays in his MLB debut on April 12th. In the start Montgomery struck out seven in just 4.2 innings pitched whole throwing with a calming demeanor and a deceptive delivery. Montgomery did give up three runs in the start, two of them earned, but did well overall for a MLB debut in the Bronx.
Holland, a former member of the Texas Rangers, just looks weird in a Chicago White Sox uniform to me. I guess it’s because he pitched in Arlington for so long, I don’t know. Anyway, Holland has begun his White Sox tenure with back-to-back quality starts and is seemingly enjoying his time in the Windy City with the White Sox. It’s too bad that ends tonight in the Bronx.
The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET inside Yankee Stadium and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB TV. You can also follow along all season long in your cars and on the radio with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman on WFAN. As always, Go Yankees!
