Yankees (41-25) Vs. Braves (35-32) Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule, Probable Pitchers

The New York Yankees would like to find out if this thing goes to 11, because 11 is one better than 10, especially when it comes to a winning streak. The last time the Yankees won 10 games in a row was 2005. One better would be the team's longest winning streak in 27 years.

Tasked with helping keep the streak alive is right-hander Hiroki Kuroda, who earned a win in six innings of work against the Braves in his last outing on June 13. Kuroda is part of a Yankees starting rotation that has been nearly untouchable in June. He is 3-0 with a 1.29 ERA in his last four starts, part of a rotation that is 12-1 with a 1.97 ERA this month.

Tim Hudson, tagged with the loss in that same June 13 game, will be on the mound Tuesday night. The Braves' right-hander is 1-2 in his last four starts. Prior to his outing against the Yankees, he hurled a complete game shutout over the Marlins.

The game starts at 7:05 p.m. Eastern. Fans can watch it on MY9 and the MLB Network.
