YGY Series Preview Show Rewind: Yankees-Brewers (5/9-5/11)

On this episode of the Yanks Go Yard Series Preview Show (recorded Wednesday night), I started the show by giving a small recap of the New York Yankees’ (18-15) series win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. After a rough series opener filled with bullpen walks and inconsistent strike zones, the Bronx Bombers found a way to take two out of three out west. Derek Jeter had five hits in the series, including a home run in Wednesday night’s win. Now, the Yankees get set to start a 12-game stretch that is all InterLeague opponents.

That stretch begins with the Yankees taking on the Milwaukee Brewers (22-13) at Miller Park for the first time since 2005. Milwaukee has been one of the surprises in the baseball season so far. They have built a solid pitching staff (3.11 ERA – 5th in MLB) and a well-rounded lineup. The Brewers’ offense has taken a hit of late without outfielder Ryan Braun (.318, 6 HR, 18 RBI’s), who is out until Tuesday due to an oblique injury. The question now for Milwaukee is whether or not they have enough to hold off the St. Louis Cardinals and Cincinnati Reds in the NL Central.

To answer these questions and more, I welcomed back an old friend to the show. Former Yanks Go Yard Staff Writer Benjamin Orr, who is now Senior Staff Writer for Reviewing The Brew, joined me to talk about this much anticipated series. Here are some of the topics we discussed on the show:
