After splitting the first two games of the series, the Yankees and Rangers will wrap up their set in Texas with the rubber match in Texas.

For the Yankees, this represents the chance to keep their series winning streak going. They’ve won their previous eight, and need a win tonight to not seed that run snapped.

The biggest thing in the Yankees’ lineup is that Gary Sanchez is not in it after not finishing last night’s game. Aaron Boone said after that game that they thought it wasn’t serious, so hopefully this is a precaution more than anything.

CC Sabathia gets the start on the mound, in what is, other than Sanchez, a fairly normal lineup. As for the Rangers, Doug Fister gets the start in what has been a pretty solid season for him so far. The game will air on YES, and first pitch will be at 7:05 PM, an hour earlier from the last two days.
