The New York Yankees will face the Chicago White Sox for the second game of their series on Friday, at 8:10 ET.
The first game on Thursday night ended 15-7.
The Yankees are currently 23-8 years old, which is comfortably the best record in baseball, and want to make some more history.
We’ve already said that every time they’ve won 22 of their first 30 games, they’ve made it to the World Series.
Let’s double the bets: when they win 24 of their first 32 games, they always win the Fall Classic.
“The # Yankees For the fifth time in franchise history, they have won 24 of their first 32 games – 1928 (26-6), 1939 (26-6), 1958 (25-7), and 1998 (25-7). They have won the World Series in each of the previous four years, “Brian Hoch, who covers the MLB.com team, tweeted on Friday.

History favors the Yankees
The Bombers have won at least 24 of their first 32 games four times, and each time, the season has ended with celebration and joy.
Could this be the fifth time?
However, to keep the trend alive, they will have to beat the White Sox first tonight.
The Yankees have already beaten White Sox best starter Dylan Siege and they will face right-handed Vince Velasquez tonight.
Velasquez has a 2-2 record with a solid 3.97 ERA.
The Yanks are about to send their ace, Gerrit Cole, to the mound.
After a rocky start, Cole’s ERA has already dropped to 2.67: he looks like a vintage Cole and will be hard to beat tonight.
The White Sox, however, have a great team despite all their injuries and can win the game very well.
