– Eovaldi bounces back

A big storyline heading in the series with the Tigers was how Nathan Eovaldi would bounce back after his awful start against the Miami Marlins.

In the start against the Marlins, Eovaldi didn’t make it out of the first inning, as he allowed nine hits and eight runs in 2/3 of an inning. Eovaldi saw his ERA rise nearly a point after the horrific start, and it did cause some panic.

Against the Tigers, Eovaldi was able to earn his sixth win of the season behind a great showing from the Yankees’ offense in the second game of the series. Eovaldi did his part too, as against the talented Tigers’ lineup, Eovaldi allowed two runs, and three hits in six innings of work.

The bad start for Eovaldi overshadowed the fact that he hasn’t been all that bad this season. His ERA will be high due to the horrific start against Miami, but a bounce back from Eovaldi was important to see.
