Big Mike will look to string together a third consecutive strong start today on Old Timers' Day.

The Yankees will look to take the rubber game of their series with the Tigers on Old-Timers' Day. New York saw their five game winning streak snapped last night as they fell to 31-31. They'll hope to climb back above .500 today.

Michael Pineda gets the start for the Yankees as he attempts to continue his recent strong play. He is coming off a pair of solid starts, lowering his ERA to a still unsightly 6.14. Michael Fulmer will oppose him for the Tigers. Fulmer came to Detroit as the centerpiece of the Yoenis Cespedes trade and has performed well in his rookie season, to the tune of a 2.83 ERA and 3.49 FIP in 47.2 innings.

The game is scheduled to start at 2:05 pm and can be seen on the YES Network and the MLB Network.
