The Yankees have struggled to win games lately but the offense is still responding well and they'll face Nick Pivetta on this game who already lost against the Yanks this season and has allowed 10 runs in his last 9 innings against them. Jameson Taillon will start for the bombers and he has been pounded lately including his last start against the Red Sox where he allowed 6 runs in 5 innings.
