Preview: New York Yankees vs. Los Angeles Angels 4/27

The New York Yankees and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim will finish their three game set tonight at Yankee Stadium as a part of ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball. With the off day for the Yankees tomorrow I expect all hands on deck tonight, especially in the bullpen. Hopefully the Yankees will not need the bullpen much as Masahiro Tanaka will be on the mound facing off with Garrett Richards for the Angels. The game will be played at 8:10 pm ET and can be seen on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball. It can also be seen on your computer with MLB TV or heard on the radio with WFAN.

Tanaka has been worth every penny thus far in 2014 and has lived up to the hype and more. Tanaka held the Red Sox to just two runs last time out in 7.1 IP and got his third victory of the season. Tanaka took Fenway and a repeat of the 24-0 season is still alive.

Richards has surprisingly been the best Angels pitcher this season, which is saying something in a rotation with Jered Weaver and CJ Wilson, and is one of the more exciting pitchers in all of baseball that you may not have heard of. Richards has only allowed seven runs in 25 innings pitched this season while striking out 24 batters and only walking 14.

Go Yankees!!
