Yankees Vs. Rangers Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule, Probable Pitchers

If the New York Yankees want to claim home-field advantage in the American League playoffs, they made a nice step forward Monday with a 8-2 victory against the Texas Rangers. The Yankees (68-47) will look to improve their cushion Tuesday, when Game 2 of the four-game series against the Rangers (67-47) will commence at Yankees Stadium (7:05 p.m. ET on YES Network).

Veteran Hiroki Kuroda (10-8) will take the mound for New York and oppose Texas' Matt Harrison (13-6). Recently, Kuroda has been a sure thing for the Yankees, as he's compiled a 1.82 ERA in his last five starts. Meanwhile, Harrison will try to improve his career 2-2 record and 4.76 ERA against New York.
