Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Texas Rangers 6/24


The New York Yankees and the Texas Rangers are back at it again today with the second of their three-game series here in the Bronx. Last night’s game had a bit of an international flair and feel to it but today it’s back to the good ole US of A as the Yankees send Luis Cessa to the mound to face off with the Rangers Austin Bibens-Dirkx. Say that three times fast.




Cessa will make his second start of the season filling in for the injured CC Sabathia. Cessa will look for a much better start the second time around than the first after taking the loss against the Oakland Athletics last time out. Cessa allowed four runs in four innings which, in the immortal words of Joe Girardi, is “not what you want.”




Bibens-Dirkx last pitched on Monday against the Toronto Blue Jays where he gave up five runs on five hits in five innings of work. Bibens-Dirkx got a no-decision in the start in an eventual 7-6 loss for the Rangers after a rocky fourth inning saw four runs plate in the frame.





The game will be played at 1:05 pm ET inside Yankee Stadium and can be seen on the YES Network, MLB Network and MLB TV. You can also follow along on the radio and in your cars by tuning into John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman on WFAN. It is High…. It is far…. It is caught by the pitcher Cessa to end the inning. Yeah, something like that. Enjoy the game and Go Yankees!
