All they had against the Cardinals was one three-and-out possession totaling 3 yards as the defense struggled as well. In four games, the Rams have already scored 142 points, showing off a 37 point differential in the scoring as well.

Tigers: The offseason. They finish with a 64-98 record, their most losses since they went 43-119 in 2003.

The pitching matchup is an interesting battle between Luis Severino and longtime ace Ervin Santana. However, much like the Yankees, the Twins thrive off the energy of critics counting them out.
"I think there was a stretch where he was matched up against (Boston's Chris) Sale, (Clevelan's Corey) Kluber, and then Sale again, and I thought he responded really well and pitched really good games", said Yankees manager Joe Girardi prior to Monday's workout. Just trying to be positive and just create good things for me and for our team.
"To me, I feel good about going in", he said.
Santana made one start against the Yanks this season, allowing two earned runs over 5 2/3 innings. Maybe most importantly, keep Aaron Judge and his 52 home runs in the ballpark. Anything is possible.

After acquiring Garcia from Atlanta to boost the rotation, the front office flipped him to the Yankees days later and sent All-Star closer Brandon Kintzler to Washington right before the July 31 trade deadline in response to a rough road trip and a simultaneous surge by division rivals Cleveland and Kansas City. In right field, Max Kepler has just two errors in 299 total chances, and Eddie Rosario has just four errors in 274 chances. This being the best teams won a lot and the not-good teams lost a lot.
