Looks like Yellow Nutsedge - Cyperus esculentus

There are a number of herbicides that you can use to control this plant but you could also make the area shadier or drier to make it less favorable for the plant to grow. Pulling out the plant leaves behind multiple nutlets "bulbs" that will each grow into a new plant.

Sedgehammer, Image, Basagran are some of the chemicals that will control your weed and not harm your grass if you follow the label.
