Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Miami Marlins 6/15

Tonight in Marlins Park the New York Yankees and the Miami Marlins start a four game series with the first two games coming in Miami and the last two games coming in the Bronx and inside Yankee Stadium. Tonight the Yankees will send Masahiro Tanaka to the mound to face off with the Marlins starter TBA. The game will be played at 7:10 pm ET and can be seen on WPIX Channel 11 and MLB TV.

  • Tanaka has made two starts since coming off the disabled list and has looked great in both starts against the Seattle Mariners and the Washington Nationals. In both contests Tanaka allowed just one run in seven innings including 15 strikeouts and zero walks combined in both starts. 

  • TBA

Am I the only one that is a tad bit concerned with Tanaka having to take at bats tonight in the National League park? Eovaldi starts tomorrow and has experience as a former member of the Marlins but anytime a big time Yankees starter has to hit in Interleague Play I immediately think to Chien-Ming Wang. Maybe I'm just a worrier by nature. Go Yankees!

  1. I agree with you Daniel. I keep thinking about that Houston game that changed the career of a very good pitcher. But then again, perhaps Tanaka shows yet another sign of being superhuman and goes 3-4 with a homerun. Truthfully though, I just hope he comes out of it unscathed. I hate National League baseball.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
