The Yankees are set to meet the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night, for Game 1 of the American League Division Series.

It was all decided last Wednesday, when the Yankees overtook the Cleveland Browns, 10-9, after a record-setting nine-inning game that lasted for nearly five hours.

So, what can we expect on Monday?

Well, Gerrit Cole will be starting for the Yankees, according to north jersey.com. He comes off quite a game against the Browns, having pitched seven innings in which he struck out 13 and allowed just two runs on six hits.

Whether New York can keep that momentum going is really unknown, since Tampa Bay won the season series 8-2 against New York.

All five games in the series will be played at Petco Park in San Diego

Monday’s game, with the first pitch at 8:07 p.m., will be shown on TBS.

The next games would then take place Tuesday and Wednesday, and, if necessary, Thursday and Friday.
