New York Yankees vs. Atlanta Braves: Masahiro Tanaka vs. Williams Perez

Tanaka Time in Atlanta!

Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

After a much needed day off following the last two series of dismal baseball, the Yankees are in Atlanta to face the Braves. Masahiro Tanaka will face off against Williams Perez. The Bronx Bombers have had a pretty good record in Atlanta over the many years of interleague play. Hopefully that continues tonight as the Yankees are looking to bounce back and finish the month of August on a high note before they head into the final stretch of the 2015 regular season. Mark Teixeira is once again out of the lineup due to injury and Alex Rodriguez will not be starting due to the lack of the DH. Yay National League rules.
