Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Texas Rangers 4/27


The New York Yankees have traditionally done well not only in the ballpark in Arlington but in the state of Texas as well. New York has one more game in the great state of Texas this week before an off day for travel tomorrow and a trip to Fenway Park and a date with the Boston Red Sox. The Yankees cannot afford to get ahead of themselves though as they face a tough task tonight inside Globe Life Park. The Rangers send one of their better pitchers to the mound in Martin Perez while the Yankees counter with their fifth starter CC Sabathia.

Sabathia has had the shortest leash of his career from manager Joe Girardi and when he exited his last start with less than 80 pitches you could tell he was visibly shocked and upset. Sabathia hasn’t gotten out of the fifth inning in either of his last two starts and will look to at least get a quality start tonight against the Rangers.

Perez has made four starts this season and has yet to come away with a victory decision to show for it, a trend that hopefully continues tonight. Perez has made one career start against the Yankees and it came last year when he allowed eight runs in one-plus inning of work in Arlington.

The game will be played at 8:05 pm ET inside Globe Life Park in Arlington and can be seen on the YES Network, ESPN and MLB TV. Every win is an important win for the Yankees at this point in the season and these wins are all the more enjoyable while you’re riding on a plane with an off day in your near future. The Yankees are off tomorrow so let the good times roll tonight.


Go Yankees!
