New York Yankees vs. Cleveland Indians: Masahiro Tanaka vs. Carlos Carrasco

Masahiro Tanaka tries to help the Yankees rebound from last night's tough loss.

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

After taking six out of seven games coming into this series against Cleveland, the Yankees lost the opener against the Indians 3-2. After being unable to rally for the win last night, New York turns to Masahiro Tanaka to keep the Yankees ahead of the Blue Jays in the AL East. Tanaka turned in his best performance as a Yankee last time out, stifling those same Blue Jays with a one-run complete game north of the border. However, Tanaka will have his work cut out for him - Carlos Carrasco has been terrific this season, and he beat the Yankees the last time he faced them, giving up just two runs over eight stellar innings. Here's hoping the Yankees can get to him tonight.
