New York Yankees vs. Houston Astros: Masahiro Tanaka vs. Lance McCullers

Yankees go for the sweep tonight.

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees have now won three games in a row, and have a chance to sweep the Astros tonight. That doesn't necessarily bode well for the hopes that the Yankees will sell off more players, as the Yankees have gone 8-4 since the All-Star break. Winning is fun too, though. Masahiro Tanaka will face the Astros tonight for the first time since his start on Opening Day. He will pitch opposite of Lance McCullers at 8:10 EST. You can follow along on YES.
