New York Yankees vs. Detroit Tigers: Masahiro Tanaka vs. Jordan Zimmerman

Tanaka and the Yankees go for a series win against the Tigers.

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

After splitting the first two games of the series, the Yankees and Tigers play the rubber game of their series in the Bronx. Masahiro Tanaka will get the start of the mound for the Yankees. Tanaka's not great numbers in day games this year have been made a thing, but he's been pitching better in general lately. We shall see if that can translate into a good performance in today's afternoon game. Jordan Zimmerman will take the ball for Detroit.
