German goes for 8th straight W as Yanks visit A's

The Oakland Athletics get a rematch with the team that ended their season a year ago when they open a three-game series against the visiting New York Yankees on Tuesday night.

Yankees right-hander Domingo German (16-2, 3.96) will seek his eighth consecutive win and attempt to get his team started on a winning note as it embarks on a nine-game Western swing that also features a showdown with the Los Angeles Dodgers later in the week.

"The major league season is filled with different challenges," Yankees manager Aaron Boone told reporters Sunday. "Going on the road, these are different challenges that are inevitable in the major league season that you kind of look forward to. So we get to go out on the West Coast, get to play a couple of really good teams obviously, but look forward to going out there."
