Game # 34 -- Astros (25-11) vs Yanks (21-12)

Forget Derek Jeter Day, it's Ernie "Let's Play Two" Banks Day as the Yanks play a doubleheader. The Yanks get two chances today to break their losing streak, but will have to do it without Aroldis Chapman who was placed on the DL with rotator cuff inflammation.  Green re-called to take his place. Refs also recalled. I'm surprised they didn't recall P-1B Mitchell!

Yanks sit Hicks and Sanchez in opener.
