Who is starting for the Yankees?
RHP Domingo German (16-3, 4.15 ERA) leads the MLB in wins, and is looking to add another one to the stat book. The righty is 3-1 in the month of August with a 4.44 ERA and 24 strikeouts over 24.1 innings pitched. In his last start against the Oakland A's on Aug. 20, he allowed five earned runs and eight hits in just 5.1 innings of work. If German gets a base hit today, it'll be the first of his career -- he's 0-for-7 from the plate in his career with a walk.
Who is starting for the Dodgers?
LHP Clayton Kershaw (13-2, 2.71 ERA) is having yet another fantastic season, as the lefty is 6-0 with two no-decisions since June 29. He is throwing to a 2.08 ERA in the month of August with 30 strikeouts through 26.0 innings. Kershaw has also gone at least 6.0 innings in every single start this season.
The Yankees will continue their West Coast road trip, and start a three-game series with the Seattle Mariners on Monday at 10:10 p.m.
