Can the Bombers make it five wins in a row?

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Things are looking pretty good for the Yankees right now. At writing, the Bombers sit just a half-game behind the Red Sox for the top spot in the AL East. The team has won four in a row and seven of their last nine. Masahiro Tanaka looks to continue the winning streak. He's coming off a rocky start -- four runs over six innings in Seattle -- but we can hope for a strong performance. He squares off against the rookie Austin Pruitt who owns a 6.25 ERA over 31.2 innings.

First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 PM and you can watch on YES locally or MLB Network nationally.
