New York Yankees vs. Houston Astros: Michael Pineda vs. Collin McHugh

Will Big Mike earn the Yankees their first win of the season? Is he feeling that "Michael Pineda energy" today?

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees will send Michael Pineda to the mound tonight to try and balance the series out. He started the 2015 season strong but experienced quite a bit of a drop off in the second half, in addition to being sidelined with forearm tightness. Hopefully he is feeling that "Michael Pineda energy" today. Pineda will face off against Collin McHugh who followed up his breakout 2014 season with a solid 2015. The game starts at 7:05 EST and you can catch it on YES Network.

Let's get that first win!
