New York Yankees vs. Kansas City Royals: Ivan Nova vs. Chris Young

New, comments

Ivan Nova makes his first start of the season. Y'all have been warned.

Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports

Aroldis Chapman is in Yankees pinstripes for the first time this year as the Yanks welcome the defending World Series champions to the Bronx for a four-game series. It's not exactly a marquee matchup, as Ivan Nova gets his first start of 2016 against Chris Young. First pitch is 7:05pm.

But hey! It's Tanya's birthday. So the Yankees should win for her. It's only polite.

Go Yankees, go baseball, go Nova.
