Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Cincinnati Reds 7/25


The New York Yankees are back from the west coast, back in the Bronx and ready to continue their climb back towards the top of the American League East Division. Standing in their way over the next two games will be the Cincinnati Reds who come into this final week before the July 31st trading deadline presumably as sellers and as a team that is looking to play spoiler any chance they can. That’s going to have to start on Friday though as the Yankees will send Jordan Montgomery to the mound tonight looking to lock down the Reds offense. Meanwhile the Reds will send Luis Castillo to the mound looking for a victory for Cincinnati. Interleague play, let’s do it.




Montgomery heads into the start tonight fresh off his first loss since the month of May last time out against the Minnesota Twins. In the start Montgomery allowed six runs on seven hits in six innings of work dropping his season win/loss record to 4-2 and raising his ERA to 3.63 in 11 starts.




Castillo also took the loss in his last start against the Arizona Diamondbacks allowing four runs on Thursday. Castillo was doomed from the start allowing three runs in the first inning before making an adjustment when he got back to the dugout before settling down.





The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET inside Yankee Stadium and can be seen on WPIX Channel 11 and MLB TV. You can also follow along in your cars and on the radio by tuning into the WFAN broadcast with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman. This time the pitchers don’t have to hit! Enjoy it and Go Yankees!
