Game # 77: Yankees (42-34) vs Chicago (AL) (33-44)

Ute Movement Continues. Yanks call up Dustin Fowler (22, 182 days) and put aging veteran Tyler Austin (25, 296 days) on the 10 Day DL. Now there are no 1Bmen on the team, except Refs (?).

Fowler gets the start in RF as the Yanks hope that the rookie magic can repeat tonight. Judge gets a half-day off (does that mean the Yanks are at 1/4 Aaron strength?) Headley sits. Torreyes at 3B. Tyler at 2B. Andujar benched for only getting 3 hits and 4 RBIs, I guess Romine is now the regular 1Bman. Can Cessa improve on his last few outings? Can Judge extend his on-base streak?
