The Cubs welcome ace pitcher Masahiro Tanaka and the Yankees to Wrigley Field on Tuesday and Chris Boden and Patrick Mooney are getting you ready with this week's Cubs Road Ahead, presented by Chicagoland and NW Indiana Honda Dealers.

Coming off back-to-back wins against the NL Central leading Milwaukee Brewers, the Cubs hope a second look at ace pitcher Masahrio Tanaka on Tuesday will help their luck when the Yankees come to Wrigley Field for a two-game series starting on Tuesday. Tanaka dominated the Cubs in the first meeting, tossing eight scoreless innings and allowing only two hits and no runs in a 3-0 Yankees' victory.

The Cubs will also welcome a familiar face back to Wrigley as Alfonso Soriano makes his return back to the North Side for the first time since he was traded last season. 

After the Cubs wrap up their quick series with the Yankees, the club will pack its bags and travel west for a 10-game road trip that will begin in San Diego with a four-game series against the Padres. 

See what Cubs Insider Patrick Mooney had to say about Soriano's return to Wrigley and the rest of the Cubs' games this week in the video above.
