* Chicago was swept three straight by the A’s over the weekend at Guaranteed Rate Field, getting outscored by a combined 18-5 in those contests. The White Sox have been swept six times in 2+ game series this season – most of any AL team, and tied for second most in MLB overall.

* David Holmberg allowed four runs (two earned) in just 3.1 IP last Wednesday in Minnesota, taking the loss, and falling to 1-1 with a 3.98 ERA in five starts this season. Tonight will be Holmberg’s first career appearance vs. the Yankees.
* Aaron Judge went 2-for-3 with an RBI on Sunday, and has now reached base safely (via h, bb, hbp) in 27 straight games – the longest streak of any Yankee since Derek Jeter had a 34-gamer to end the 2012 campaign. Judge leads all AL players in batting average (.332), home runs (26) and RBI (59) in 2017.
