    Pinstripe Alley: New York Yankees vs. Colorado Rockies: Masahiro Tanaka vs. Antonio Senzatela

    MLB

    The Yankees have been dominant at home since the middle of April, winning 13 of their last 14 series and splitting the exception to the rule. They've collected more home wins than anyone in the American League so far, and will look to lock down another today with the Rockies being the latest team caught in their sights.

    Masahiro Tanaka gets the nod to start today, coming off of a solid performance against the Blue Jays on Sunday. Tanaka gave up a couple of long balls against Toronto, but limited the damage to solo shots and worked an efficient six innings on 79 pitches.

    Replacement Level Yankees Weblog: Yankees.com: Edwin's slam sparks Yanks, ex-Rockies pile on

    Disclaimer: If you think this is the official website of the New York Yankees, you're an idiot. Go away.

    From the moment his bat made contact with the ball, Edwin Encarnacion started to run. On a particularly hot summer night at Yankee Stadium--the temperature on the field hit triple digits at first pitch--he might not have expected his line drive to carry through the air for very long.

    Rockies outfielder Garrett Hampson, sprinting over from shallow left-center, seemed to have a read on it. With the help of a 10-mph wind from right to left, Encarnacion's blast carried just over the left-field wall.

    Pinstripe Alley: Based on performance and economics, Chapman probably shouldn't opt out of his contract.

    Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman made headlines earlier this week when a report from Ken Rosenthal came out suggesting that he'd "one million percent" opt out of his contract after the 2019 season. Chapman later refuted the report in an interview and on social media, calling himself a "Yankee 100%."

    Regardless of truth, the whole fiasco was an unfriendly reminder that Chapman reserves the right to change teams next year. Chapman's record five-year, $86 million contract signed before the 2017 season contains an opt-out after year three, which is this season.

    Pinstripe Alley: Savages in the box yet again, Yankees beat Rockies 8-2

    MLB

    The Savages were on display once again tonight. The Yankees' offense exploded for another eight runs tonight, and the pitching staff did an admirable job keeping the Rockies' bats in check. All together, the Bombers managed an 8-2 victory.

    It wasn't flashy, but J.A. Happ got the job done tonight. Across his five innings of work, Rockies hitters were on the bases quite a bit. Happ allowed at least two runners on in every inning he threw, but to his credit, only two came across to score.

    Happ bent, but never really broke.

    NY Post: Mike Tauchman saves his best for former Rockies team

    The disparity between the MLB-best Yankees and the last-place Rockies was reflected in Friday's score (8-2), but the gap might not have grown as great if Colorado had kept its talent.

    In the first meeting against their former team, DJ LeMahieu and Mike Tauchman combined for five hits and four runs, while Adam Ottavino struck out the side in a perfect inning of relief. Entering the season, LeMahieu, Ottavino and Tauchman had combined to play their past 16 years with the Rockies.

    "I think it felt really good," said Ottavino, who holds a team-best 1.

    NY Post: Yankees have plan for players, fans to stay cool amid heat wave

    With the temperature expected to approach triple digits in The Bronx this weekend, the Yankees said Friday they would take added precautions at the Stadium, including having hydration stations on all levels of the ballpark.

    Fans will also be permitted to bring bottled water into the Stadium -- excluding cans, glass, metal containers or other thermoses.

    The team has also advised people to use common sense, wear sunscreen and not stay in the sun too long.

    "Fans are encouraged to step out of the sun as necessary to spend time in shaded concourses or other cooler areas,'' the team said in a statement.

    ESPN.com: 'He was like a poker player who could always read me and my hand': A-Rod on Mike Mussina

    Editor's note: Alex Rodriguez has a unique relationship with the four players voted into the 2019 Baseball Hall of Fame class. He was teammates with three of them (Mariano Rivera, Edgar Martinez and Mike Mussina) and played against Roy Halladay throughout their careers. In the days leading up to their enshrinement in Cooperstown, New York, A-Rod shares the stories of those stars -- as teammates, competitors and friends -- in his own words.

    Mike Mussina didn't call me Alex. Maybe that was too formal for him. He didn't call me A-Rod. Maybe because he wasn't comfortable using the nickname that was often used by broadcasters and writers.
