The Yankees have a four-game winning streak, and they're going for five. They are on the brink of taking four straight games against the Oakland Athletics at their home ballpark, and now they look to Michael Pineda to finish the job. Pineda, frankly, has been bad. He has a 161 ERA- and 116 FIP-, and he has allowed ten home runs in just 43.2 innings. If he wants to start turning things around, now would be an excellent time. He'll be facing Jesse Hahn, who comes into this game with a 3.38 ERA in three starts.
The Yankees' lineup is standard, with really nothing of note to discuss. If the Yankees win this game today, they will be just one game back of .500.
Go Yankees, boo Athletics, go baseball.
