Athletics name Hendriks wild-card game starter

Aaron Boone might regret playing this card, but the Yankees manager is using his so-called ace and handing the ball to Luis Severino for a do-or-die game against the A's. The Yankees will host the Oakland Athletics at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday night. Whether you're looking for daily projections, the latest starting lineups and weather, or batting and pitching heat maps to find the best matchups - we've got you covered!

"I think he's equipped in so many ways to handle this, and perhaps most importantly, he's equipped with awesome stuff and the ability to dominate big league hitters because he's such a talented pitcher", Boone said. Severino was 14-2 at the All-Star break with a 2.31 ERA.

Severino went 1-1 with a 6.23 ERA in two starts vs. the A's, for what it's worth.

Severino, 24, started a career-high 32 games for the Yankees this season, posting a 19-8 mark with an earned run average of 3.39 and a WHIP of 1.145 in 191.1 innings pitched.

The Trump ‘Emergency Test’ Text Made Everyone Jump Out Of Their Skin
Even if the handset is missing a SIM card or isn't activated, if it's on and not in a phone call it will receive the notification. As cell phones across the United States went off in a " Presidential Alert " test, millions of voices cried out in response.

Reliever Liam Hendriks will start for the A's.

That last part is significant, as Hendriks will become just the fourth pitcher in Major League Baseball history to start a playoff game after having zero wins during the regular season, according to Elias Sports Bureau, via The Associated Press' Ronald Blum.

Fortunately, Wednesday's winner-take-all AL Wild Card Game will avoid rain in NY.
