Schedule Change and Outcomes

The Monday game between the New York Yankees and the Miami Marlins had a schedule change due to the total solar eclipse. Originally, the Yankees were set to host the Marlins at 2:05 PM Eastern Time (1805 GMT). However, the start of the game was delayed by four hours, according to Associated Press.

The game was rescheduled to start at 6:05 PM, with the stadium opening its doors at 3 PM. The first 15,000 fans attending the game would receive a t-shirt commemorating the solar eclipse and the Yankees.

In another game, the Yankees triumphed over the Toronto Blue Jays with standout performances from Juan Soto and Giancarlo Stanton. This victory gave the ‘Bronx Bombers’ a series win of 2-1 and brought their record to 8 wins and 2 losses, marking one of their best starts in recent years.

Despite the Blue Jays scoring the first run in the third inning, the Yankees quickly responded with five runs. The visitors managed to add two more runs in the fifth and sixth innings, but the Yankees sealed the game with another run in the sixth and two more in the eighth.

The Yankees, known as the most successful team in Major League Baseball with 27 championships, featured a strong lineup in their game against the Blue Jays, with notable players like Gleyber Torres, Juan Soto, and Giancarlo Stanton.

Looking ahead, the Yankees will face the Cleveland Guardians after their series against the Marlins, followed by a rematch against the Blue Jays in Toronto. Fans are hopeful for a successful season and potentially a shot at the World Series in 2024.
