The New York Yankees and Texas Rangers face off on Monday in an MLB showdown at Yankee Stadium. These two teams split a doubleheader on Sunday. The Yakees won the first game 2-1 but the Rangers got some revenge in Game 2 winning 4-2. 

The Yankees come into this game with a 19-8 record overall but they have lost two of the last three games. The offense has been a bit of an issue coming into this game only scoring five runs total over the last three games. Even when the offense has struggled though, the pitching staff has been good all season giving up only 2.78 runs per game which is second in all of baseball. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Texas Rangers who sit with an 11-15 record overall but they are turning the season around a bit winning five of the last six games. The pitching early in the season was an issue, but they are doing a better job of that the last week. In this game, the Rangers are going to need the pitching to be good. Adolis Garcia has been the top player for the Rangers hitting four home runs and driving in 18 RBIs.
