The New York Yankees will conclude their three-game home series when hosting the Cleveland Guardians on Wednesday night. The NY Yankees dropped to fourth place in the AL East after splitting their last 30 games played overall and 9-8 at home while chasing an 8.5 games margin to Tampa Bay in the first place. The Yankees struggled as of late after losing four consecutive matches including a series opener but managed to end the streak with a 4-2 home victory over the Guardians in game 2 on May 2. Relief Pitcher Wandy Peralta (2-0, 2.38 ERA) earned the victory for the Bronx Bombers with zero earned runs and zero free bases allowed, and zero strikeouts in 0.2 innings pitched in the win.

First Baseman Anthony Rizzo powered the offense for the NY Yankees with a batting average of .274, five home runs, 13 RBIs, 29 hits, and an on-base percentage of .366 for the season. Aaron Judge was the true leader in home runs and RBIs but the right fielder was put on a 10-day IL due to a hip injury. On Wednesday, the Yankees will counter with Clarke Schmidt to start the series finale against the Guardians. The right-handed thrower marked a 0-3 record with a 6.80 ERA while striking out 32 hitters for the year.
