Yankees at Nationals - Eovaldi vs. Gonzalez

New, comments

The Yankees will look to rebound from losing their last two series', and to get back one in the win column, they need to try to cool down the smoking hot Nationals.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees will roll into Washington tonight for a two-game series against the Nationals. The Yankees come in losing five of their last six games. On the other end, Washington comes in with wins in nine of their last 11 games. Bryce Harper continues his amazing power surge, following being named NL Player of the Week yesterday. Mark Teixeira returns to the lineup following a big toe contusion, while Alex Rodriguez, Carlos Beltran, and Didi Gregorius get the day off for the Yankees. Also, to go along with the Tanaka news...

Welp, it was fun while it lasted. The action gets underway at 7:05 on YES, as Nasty Nate goes up against lefty Gio Gonzalez. Let's go Yankees!
