New York Yankees

After a well deserved Monday off, Masahiro Tanaka and the New York Yankees get right back at it with the Boston Red Sox coming to town.

Home sweet home, the phrase the New York Yankees are uttering at this very moment. After a long 10-game road trip, the Yanks return to The Stadium tonight to take on the division rival Boston Red Sox.

Masahiro Tanaka (7-4, 3.80 ERA) will trot to the mound to take on 23-year old left-handed Henry Owens who’s making his MLB debut.


Tanaka’s looking to rebound from a poor outing last Wednesday in Texas. He struggled through six innings, surrendering four runs.

Meanwhile, the Yankees bats continue to keep surging. On Sunday they scored 12 runs in Chicago while defeating the White Sox 12-3. It’s the seventh such time they scored 12 runs in a game in 2015.

Shortstop Didi Gregorius is just one of the usual suspects who’s tearing it up. Over his last 25 at-bats, Didi has picked up 12 hits including 12 runs batted in.

The piece of bad news comes from the starting pitching front. Injured starter Michael Pineda won’t be returning until September due to his flexor-strain.

First pitch is slated for 7:05 PM ET.
