The Yankees head to Arlington in hopes of moving a bit closer to the AL East lead.

After a successful trip to Baltimore that finally broke the Camden Yards Curse, the Yankees are heading to Arlington, Texas, for a series against the Rangers. They'll send Masahiro Tanaka to the mound to kick off the series after his brilliant seven-inning, one-run outing against Boston last weekend. Up against Tanaka will be Martin Perez for the Rangers. He's coming off quality start against the Angels that earned him his 11th win of the season.
