Judge’s Yankees After their Sixth Consecutive Win 

The Yankees are truly dominating the league. The team is now looking for their sixth win in a row. New York is also the first team in the league to reach the 24 victory mark this early into the season.

Aaron Judge has continued to lead the Yankees with a .305 batting average and 12 home runs. Gerrit Cole has become one of the most consistent players for New York on the mound with 46 strikeouts.

With two straight wins over Chicago, odds are still tilted over to New York. However, the Yankees are now in the ideal spot to take full advantage of the next two games and kill the series to remain the top seed in the league.

Anderson’s White Sox to Turn their Numbers Around

The White Sox might still be in second place in the AL Central, but that’s only given the overall level of performance in the division. In other words, division rivals have still not been able to match the rest of the league when it comes to more solid numbers.

Tim Anderson has remained the leading figure at the plate for the White Sox. Anderson continues to lead Chicago with a .327 batting average and four home runs.

Chicago had an awful season start with seven consecutive defeats. Still, they managed to overcome this stage by bringing in more wins and even pulling six straight wins to outweigh their negative digits. The White Sox still have it in them to turn things around.
