A win tonight would mean a four-game sweep, which would also match the Yankees' longest winning streak of the season.

You might remember Carrasco's name from the Cliff Lee-deal. Philly sent him and three others to Cleveland for the lefty in 2009. He's coming off his best game of the year (June 7 vs. Minnesota): 8.1 ip, 3 h, 0 r, 1 bb, 6 k.

Meanwhile, Burnett is coming off his worst start of 2011 (June 8 vs. Boston): 5.2 ip, 7 h, 7 er, 4 bb, 3 k.
