The Yankees will send their ace to the mound as they try to narrow their AL East deficit to two.

Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees have started another winning streak, and it will have to continue if they want to keep their slim AL East hopes alive. With the visiting Rays just playing out the string, they'll have every chance tonight to extend their winning streak to three.

Luis Severino gets the start in what should be his final appearance of the regular season. This will cap an outstanding year for Severino, who has posted a 151 ERA+ and 221 strikeouts in 187.1 innings and is poised to get the ball to start the AL Wild Card game. Tampa Bay will counter with Matt Andriese, a 28-year-old righty whose numbers (94 ERA+, 8.1 K/9, 2.9 BB/9) reflect a league average starter.

The game begins at 7:05 EST and can be seen on WPIX.
