The Yankees will be living out of a suitcase for much of these final two months. They play 60.7 percent of their remaining games away from Yankee Stadium. There are 56 games left, and 34 of them are away games.
So far, the Yankees are 27-20 on the road compared to 37-22 at home.
In August, they have 30 games, 21 of them on the road. Tonight marks the beginning of a seven-game trip. The Yankees have four in Chicago, then a large three-game series at Fenway. They enter August two games back of the Red Sox.
“I think it’s an important road trip,” Joe Girardi said. “We’re going to be making a lot of road trips the next two months. We’ve played pretty well on the road. We need to continue to do that.”
CC Sabathia will go after his 16th win tonight. Jake Peavy will take the start for the White Sox. Game time is 8:10 Eastern. YES has the telecast.
