Things are pretty good in Yankeeland right now, huh? Last night marked the team’s seventh straight win in the midst of a week that the team has added Giancarlo Stanton, Edwin Encarnación, and Aaron Judge to the lineup. Just look at what this has done for the team’s division title odds:

Obviously there’s plenty of season remaining, but this is good. Very good.

Another win tonight would give the Yankees a series victory in this weekend’s four game set. Masahiro Tanaka, who threw a two-hit shutout in his last outing, will oppose veteran southpaw Wade Miley. Here are the lineups they’ll face:

Astros (48-29)

  1. José Altuve, 2B
  2. Alex Bregman, SS
  3. Michael Brantley, LF
  4. Yordan Alvarez, DH
  5. Yuli Gurriel, 3B
  6. Josh Reddick, RF
  7. Tyler White, 1B
  8. Max Stassi, C
  9. Jake Marisnick, CF

LHP Wade Miley

Yankees (48-27)

  1. DJ LeMahieu, 2B
  2. Aaron Judge, RF
  3. Luke Voit, 1B
  4. Giancarlo Stanton, LF
  5. Edwin Encarnación, DH
  6. Aaron Hicks, CF
  7. Didi Gregorius, SS
  8. Gio Urshela, 3B
  9. Austin Romine, C

RHP Masahiro Tanaka

Notes:

First pitch is scheduled for 7:15pm at Yankee Stadium. It’s a beatiful day in New York which will continue into tonight. You can watch on FOX or listen to WFAN for the broadcast.

    According to @EliasSports , Wilkin Castillo (10 years, 2 days) is the first player with 10+ years between RBI since Jerome Williams went 10 years, 347 days, from Sept. 11, 2003 (w/ SF at SD) and Aug. 24, 2014 (w/ PHI, vs. STL). #Marlins

    It’s been a great stretch. Only way it could be better is if the Sox lost a couple more games. Currently right behind the twins for best record in AL.
