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

The New York Yankees and Oakland Athletics will close out a three-game series Sunday at Yankees Stadium. The Yankees (88-63) will try to earn a series sweep and extend their current winning streak to eight games, while the A's (85-66) will try to salvage a victory that will help them keep pace in the AL Wild Card race.

Veteran Hiroki Kuroda (14-10) will take the mound for the Yankees and oppose the A's A.J. Griffin (6-1). Kuroda is 1-1 with a 3.21 ERA in two career starts against Oakland, while Griffin was previously undefeated before losing Tuesday to the Detroit Tigers when he gave up five runs on eight hits in just 4 2/3 innings of work.

New York outfielder Ichiro Suzuki will look to continue his outstanding hitting in the series. The midseason trade acquisition is 14-for-20 with seven runs and five RBI in his last five contests, including homering twice in as many games.

The game will be broadcast locally on the YES Network and nationally on TBS. First pitch is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. ET.
