Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Oakland Athletics 5/11



Good morning everybody and welcome back to the Bronx, New York. It is a new day and it is a new series for the Bronx Bombers as Aaron Judge and company welcome the Oakland Athletics to town for a three-game weekend set. In the opener of the three-game series inside Yankee Stadium the Yankees will send a familiar face out there in Sonny Gray who makes his first start against his former team after being traded away from Oakland at last season’s trading deadline. Opposing Gray will be Kendall Graveman for the Athletics, good luck to you with the way this offense is rolling right now. If they did what they did to Craig Kimbrel on Wednesday night, how do you think that will bode for you?

Gray will face his former teammates for the first time as a member of the New York Yankees tonight after spending parts of five seasons with Oakland. From 2013-2017 the Yankees right-hander posted a 44-36 record with Oakland with a 3.42 ERA in 114 games, 112 of them as a starting pitcher.

Kendall Graveman makes the start for Oakland. 

The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET inside Yankee Stadium and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB Network. You can also follow along with the game on MLB TV, with the MLB At-Bat app and by tuning into the Yankees radio broadcast on WFAN with the legendary duo of John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman.

Enjoy the game, here’s to hoping that Gray makes the A’s miss him tonight in the Bronx and go Yankees!!
