Michael Jordan Pens Heartfelt Tribute Letter to Derek Jeter

Michael Jordan Pens Heartfelt Tribute Letter to Derek Jeter”

The teams will play a doubleheader on Sunday, when the Yankees will honour Derek Jeter before the second game.

The Bleacher Creatures' first-inning Roll Call of Yankees starters included Jeter, who led NY to five World Series titles during a big league career that spanned 1995-2014, and fans chanted Jeter's name in the late innings.

They plan to retire his number at the "House that Jeter Built", the new Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. He walked two before getting out of the first unharmed and pitched out a two-on, nobody-out jam in a second that started with a walk and a hit.

Looking pretty in pink in special Mother's Day uniforms, the AL East leaders stopped their first three-game losing streak since the season's opening week. All coverage will air on ESPN, but it's possible to watch Derek Jeter Night online, without cable TV. "We'll need to hire half the New York City police department to scour every cubby hole hiding place in the Stadium trying to find the fans from the first game who don't voluntarily leave the Stadium when they're supposed to?" It's Houston's best 36-game start in franchise history.

NY is 3-for-24 with runners in scoring position in the last three games.

"We've seen a couple of good pitchers", Girardi said.

Luis Severino (2-3, 3.40) starts the opener for the Yankees and he hopes he does not pitch in another marathon. Masahiro Tanaka will start for NY, and he'll be opposed by Houston's Charlie Morton. Tanaka is 5-0 with a 2.78 ERA in his last five starts after allowing three runs and 10 hits over seven innings on Monday.

Well, sort of. Because you'll recall that last Friday's 18-inning affair against the Cubs wasn't a "real" doubleheader, but you get the idea.
