The Yankees will try to earn a split of a four game series with Texas this afternoon from Arlington. Hiroki Kuroda takes to the mound with hopes of sending New York back to the Bronx on a winning note. The team will head home for a very important weekend series with the Rays – a series that might see Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez return to action. Lefty Derek Holland is on the mound for the Rangers. Mariano Rivera, who will be making his final regular season appearance at Texas, will be honored prior to today’s game in a ceremony that will include former Yankee and 1996 World Series MVP, John Wetteland.
