New York Yankees at Baltimore Orioles: Masahiro Tanaka vs. Kevin Gausman

Can the Yankees win a second game in a row? Will the offense build on yesterday's performance? Will dogs learn how to talk?

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday, our week-ish long nightmare ended. The Yankees snapped their losing streak in a big way. The offense peeked it's head up, scoring seven runs. Meanwhile, CC Sabathia shut out the Orioles.

Today, the Yankees send Masahiro Tanaka to the mound, looking for a second straight win. The offense will have to deal with Kevin Gausman, who gets the start for Baltimore.

Brett Gardner is out of the lineup today after getting hit by a pitch. Chase Headley is also out of the starting lineup today. Go Yankees, go baseball.
