Keys to the Game:
  1. Swing Early: This season, opposing hitters are hitting .316 on the first pitch against Weaver.
  2. Fourth Times a Charm: Opposing hitters are hitting .301 in the fourth inning this season off Weaver. That’s the best of any inning.
  3. Double Positive: When Napoli is catching for Weaver, opposing hitters are hitting .306, as opposed to .215 with other catchers. If he doesn’t play, then the best opposing hitter against Chamberlain on the Angels will not be hitting. So either way, the Yankees get something positive.
