Game 75: Keep the Momentum Going

As the Yankees struggle with more injury news, they look to build on last night’s win behind Luis Severino.

The young righty looks to rebound from allowing a season-high six runs June 22 against the Angels. This start marks his second time facing the White Sox this season. He got the loss April 18, when he allowed four runs through eight innings. Through seven starts, Severino has yet to receive a loss on the road.

Tough lefty José Quintana counters for the White Sox. The Colombian has been linked to the Yankees through trade rumors for months on end, but has stayed put to become the White Sox ace. An All-Star last season, Quintana is 2-1 with a 2.25 ERA in June. He did not pitch when the two teams met in April.

Brett Gardner gets the night off against the tough lefty. He is 2-for-7 (.286) lifetime against Quintana, but just 7-for-42 (.189) in his last 10 games. Rob Refsnyder starts in his place. With Starlin Castro on the DL, the Yankees promoted No. 11 prospect Tyler Wade. However, he will be on the bench in favor of Ronald Torreyes. Matt Holliday is still inexplicably sick, and Tyler Austin‘s hamstring is sore, so the latter is the designated hitter. Austin Romine starts at first base in his place.
