Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Texas Rangers 7/27

The New York Yankees are fresh off their three game weekend series with the Minnesota Twins and are now headed to Arlington, Texas to face off with the Texas Rangers. This will be a four game series in front of the Rangers fan base with the first game going down tonight. The Yankees will send Ivan Nova to the mound to face off against the Rangers starter Matt Harrison. The game will be played at 8:05 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network, ESPN and MLB TV.

  • Nova has now made five starts since coming off the disabled list with Tommy John surgery and is fresh off his first quality start in his last outing. Nova limited the Baltimore Orioles in a victory while logging six innings or more of work in three of his five starts off the DL. 

  • Harrison is fresh off earning his first Major League victory since May 8, 2014 last time out against the Colorado Rockies. In the Rangers 9-0 victory Harrison pitched six innings allowing just seven hits and no runs while walking one and striking out two. 

The Yankees will have a spot starter take a turn tomorrow night against this same Rangers team pushing back the Yankees top two, Masahiro Tanaka and Michael Pineda, back to Wednesday and Thursday starts. The Rangers could also be buying before the trade deadline, much like the Yankees could be, so it could be interesting to see how that affects this series going forward if at all. The goal is the same for New York no matter what goes down, another series and another series win. Go Yankees!
