After taking two-of-three from the Detroit Tigers, the Texas Rangers travel to the Bronx for a four-game set with the Yankees.

Ryan Dempster will start for the third time as a Texas Ranger on Monday night, as the Rangers head to New York to take on the Yankees in a rematch of the 2010 ALCS, and a potential 2012 playoff matchup.

The Rangers took two-of-three against the Detroit Tigers over the weekend, and are 7-3 in their last 10 games. During that span, Josh Hamilton has had a resurgence, hitting .455 with three home runs over the last seven days.

For Dempster, it'll be his second start against a playoff-quality opponent since coming to the Rangers in a July 31 trade from the Chicago Cubs. Dempster was crushed by the Los Angeles Angels in his first start, giving up eight runs in four and two thirds innings, but was much better in his second start, giving up three unearned runs in six and two thirds innings against the Red Sox last week in Boston.

The Yankees will counter with David Phelps, who will make his fourth start of the year on Monday night. Phelps has pitched 55 innings, with 19 appearances out of the bullpen, and is 2-3 with a 2.42 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and the owner of a 56/19 SO/BB ratio.

First pitch is scheduled for 6:05 CT from Yankee Stadium in New York City. Televised coverage can be found on Fox Sports Southwest regionally and ESPN2 nationally.
