After taking two of three against the Mets, the Yankees continue their interleague swing by hosting the Nationals at Yankee Stadium tonight. The two teams have already met this season, but hopefully this will be their first full game of the season.

In addition to getting a DH again, Neil Walker is back in the starting lineup, as Miguel Andujar gets the day off.

Meanwhile, CC Sabathia gets the start on the mound. He had been struggling of late, but bounced back last time out against Toronto. He allowed two runs in seven innings, which is tied for the longest outing he’s had all season. The big news in the Nationals’ lineup is that Daniel Murphy is playing in his first game this season after missing the start with an injury. Hopefully, he’s still a little rusty tonight.

Tonight’s game is on WPIX and first pitch will be at 7:05 eastern.
