The Yankees are as close to matchup-proof as they come as they got to Morton in a 5-1 victory. Tonight we will look to some of those bats in a tasty matchup at home to the Rockies and left-handed starter Kyle Freeland. More on that later, let’s get into this mega 14 gamer, let’s go Around the Horn!
