The New York Yankees look for their third straight win as they begin a three-game series with the Oakland Athletics on Friday night. (Game Time: 10:05 p.m. ET, TV Schedule: YES)
New York has won six straight in Oakland, and will be meeting an Athletics team that is last in the majors in batting average at .210. Oakland managed just three runs during a three-game set with the Los Angeles Angels, including just one run on four hits combined while losing the final two games.
The Yankees won the last two legs of a three-game series with the Kansas City Royals, including an 8-3 victory Wednesday night that was charged by two Alex Rodriguez home runs and seven strong innings from Andy Pettitte.
Ivan Nova (4-2, 5.69 ERA) will take the mound Friday for the Yankees. He will meet Tyson Ross (2-4, 5.73 ERA).
