Tonight the Yankees look to get back on track after losing three straight games against the Rays. The Yankees will send Michael Pineda to the mound to face off against Chris Young for the Royals. Pineda notched a career-high 16 strikeouts during his last outing, and as much as the Yankees need him to be dominant, they also need the help of the offense. The game starts at 8:10 EST and you can catch it on WPIX.

It looks like Joe Girardi is going to deny us the Chris Young vs. Chris Young matchup since Carlos Beltran is getting the start over him. In other news, the Yankees placed Chase Whitley on the disabled list with a "right elbow sprain" and Jose Ramirez has been called up from Triple-A.

Let's start a new win streak. Go Yankees!
