After taking two out of the first three games in this series, the Yankees will go for the series victory against the Astros in what will most likely be their last trip to Houston this year, barring a fascinating playoff showdown. Based on these last few games, that series would be damn fun to watch. For now though, the Yankees send Michael Pineda to hopefully rebound with the 28-year-old elder statesman of the Astros rotation, Collin McHugh, opposing him. All of Dellin Betances, Justin Wilson, and Chasen Shreve are likely unavailable, and Esmil Rogers is back with the team. Be very afraid, of the bullpen today.

You can watch the game on YES, ROOT Sports-Southwest, MLB Network, or MLB.tv. First pitch will be at 2:10pm.

Go Yankees, go baseball.
