Yankees At Rays Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule, Probable Pitchers

The New York Yankees had held the lead in the AL East standings since early June, but Tuesday night's 5-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays officially brought an end to that streak and the Yankees now find themselves in a first place tie with the Baltimore Orioles.

Now New York must begin the task of trying to regain some cushion in the standings as they close out their series with the Rays on Wednesday night.

Hiroki Kuroda will take the hill for New York against Tampa at Tropicana Field who is no stranger to being involved in pennant races. He'd helped the Los Angeles Dodgers advance to NLCS twice in 2008 and 2009. He enters the game with a 12-10 record and 3.04 ERA.

Date/Time: Wednesday, Sept. 5 at 7:10 p.m. ET

TV: YES, MLBN

Radio: WCBS 880, WADO 1280
