The Yanks go for their seventh series victory in a row with Tanaka on the hill.

After bludgeoning the Rangers' pitching staff last night, the Yankees will shoot to do it again, though they face a tougher opponent in Colby Lewis, who has seemingly always been an annoying foe. On the bright side, Masahiro Tanaka starts tonight, giving the Yankees a pretty good shot at securing their seventh straight series victory.

Sources confirm that winning a bunch of series is a good thing. They should probably do that. You can catch the game at 8:05 PM EST on YES Network, FOX Sports-Southwest, or

Go Yankees, go baseball, go #TANAK.
