The Yankees will try to shake off last night's tough loss by sending their ace to the mound. Masahiro Tanaka got knocked around on Opening Day - the Rays tagged him for seven runs in 2.2 innings - but there's no one else I'd rather have pitching. He's earned a mulligan.
On the other side, Kevin Gausman gets the start for the Orioles. He thoroughly owned the Yankees last season, pitching to a 1.10 ERA against the Bombers. It would be nice to leave those numbers in the past. Maybe a different lineup will produce better results.
First pitch is scheduled for 4:05 PM. You can follow the game on YES, FS1, or MLB.tv.
