New York Yankees at Toronto Blue Jays: Nathan Eovaldi vs. Marcus Stroman

New, comments

The Yanks go for their second series victory of the season, though they face a formidable foe in Stroman.

Hey, how about another series win? The Yankees look to move to 5-3 on the season tonight in the rubber game of this three-game set. Nathan Eovaldi will try to bounce back from his shaky 2016 debut against the talented righty who was given Toronto's Opening Day nod, Marcus Stroman.

Stroman pitched well on Opening Day against the Rays but was torched at home by the Red Sox for five runs on six hits in just 5 1/3 innings in his last time out. Hopefully that's the Stroman the Yankees face tonight. Brian McCann is back in the lineup after taking a day off to rest his bruised toe, and regulars Brett Gardner and Didi Gregorius have returned as well.

First pitch will be at 7:07pm.

Go Yankees, go baseball.
