Why Yankees made a decision to give struggling Aaron Hicks a day off

Why Yankees made a decision to give struggling Aaron Hicks a day off

Quite a list - glad to have them all at the party in the Bronx as the Yankees battle Houston for the last time until, hopefully, October!

Aaron Judge is returning to the New York Yankees at full strength. The Astros are 1-6 in the last 7 meetings in NY and the over is 4-1-1 in the last 6 meetings.

Thanks in part to Giancarlo Stanton's two go-ahead two-run singles - Stanton gave the Yankees a 4-2 lead in the sixth and a 7-5 lead in the seventh - the Yankees escaped with a win (NYY 7, HOU 5) to clinch the four-game series win.

Maybin entered Thursday with a.307 average, a career-best.383 on-base percentage, and having hit four home runs in his previous five games.

"When I get back on the field, I've got to play". And there haven't been any issues, so I'm ready to go. It didn't feel good.

That pitching stats favor Peacock in the one, but I think it is the Yankees who get the job done today. The Yankees are 13-4 in their last 17 Friday games, 1-4 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 4-1 in Paxtons last 5 home starts.

Newly acquired Yankees designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion has a solo homer in five at-bats versus Peacock.

NY is getting two of their top weapons back at a great time. The one thing he hasn't done is played a ton of games. Now he tries to build on that effort at Yankee Stadium, where he has a 2.15 ERA in six starts while going only 1-2.

What he's seen: The Yankees were 11-10 when Judge got hurt. "But feel like he's physically in a really good spot, and he has been now for a while, and feels ready to go, and I know he'll impact us in a big way".

Paxton is also looking to redeem himself after enduring one of his worst starts with the Yankees at Houston on April 10, giving up five runs and eight hits - two of them home runs - in four innings of an 8-6 defeat. Trying to keep the Yankees winning streak alive will be James Paxton (4-3 3.93 ERA). George Springer is 8 for 33 and has taken the southpaw deep three times.

Jose Altuve, who made his return to the Astros on Wednesday after being sidelined for more than a month with a strained hamstring, is 9 for 28 (.321) with two homers versus Paxton.
