We jump from hosting one New York team to the other as the Evil Empire is in town for a three game series. The Yankees look a little different than when we last saw them, as they are without both Gary Sanchez and Gleyber Torres, as well as Masahiro Tanaka and Jordan Montgomery.
Here are tonight's lineups for the SG vs SG matchup. Granderson will lead off and DH, and Martin will catch for Sammy G. Gurriel, who hit his first major league home run off Sonny Gray, will sit.
