New York Yankees vs. Los Angeles Angels: Masahiro Tanaka vs. Jered Weaver

It's Tanaka Time

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight the Yankees will kick off their final West Coast trip of the season with a three-game series against the Angels. After dropping two out of three games against the Blue Jays, the Yankees are now six games back in the hunt for the second Wild Card. Masahiro Tanaka will get the start tonight, looking to take advantage of the last-place Angels. He will square off against Jered Weaver, who is sporting a 5.32 ERA and has struggled mightily this season. The game starts at 10:05 pm EST (sorry, East Coast fans) and you can catch it on FS1.
