New York Yankees at Texas Rangers: CC Sabathia vs. Martin Perez

New, comments

The Yankees go for a series victory with the big lefty on the mound.

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

After the disappointment of last night's blowout loss, the Yankees will try to make up it by winning tonight to secure a series victory against the Rangers. It would be nice to not follow their first series victory since the beginning of 2016 with yet another loss. CC Sabathia isn't exactly the most reassuring of starters, but so it goes.

The Yankees will have Alex Rodriguez back in the lineup, as he seems to be feeling better after hurting his oblique the other day. Aaron Hicks is still out, so the lefty-heavy outfield will remain intact against the southpaw Martin Perez. Joe Girardi did make one small move though, benching Didi Gregorius in favor of righty Ronald Torreyes. Hopefully, it works out.

First pitch will be at 8:05 and you can watch the game on either YES, ESPN, or MLB.tv.

go Yankees go, you are the #1
