The Yankees started this three-game series with the lowly Tigers with a bang last night, and now they’ve got to keep it going. Gotta beat up on these bad teams late in the season. Score early and often like last night. Don’t even give the Tigers a reason to play hard, you know? That’s what the Yankees did against Matt Boyd last night and they’ll look to do against Jordan Zimmermann tonight.

As an added bonus, the Yankees have Luis Severino on the mound tonight, and he’s been their best starter all year. He rebounded from that brutal start against the Red Sox last week to dominate the Mets last time out. A repeat performance would be appreciated. The Yankees have won six of their last eight games and added just one game to their wildcard lead. Gotta keep winning, I guess. Here is the Tigers’ lineup and here is the Yankees’ lineup:

  1. LF Brett Gardner
  2. RF Aaron Hicks
  3. C Gary Sanchez
  4. DH Aaron Judge
  5. SS Didi Gregorius
  6. 1B Chase Headley
  7. 3B Todd Frazier
  8. CF Jacoby Ellsbury
  9. 2B Ronald Torreyes
    RHP Luis Severino

It is cool and cloudy in Detroit, and there are some sprinkles in the forecast too. Nothing that should interrupt the game. Tonight’s game will begin at 7:10pm ET and WPIX will have the broadcast. Enjoy.

Injury Update: Greg Bird (ankle) will play in minor league rehab games tonight and tomorrow, then be reevaluated. He could rejoin the Yankees after that.
