Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Oakland Athletics 5/28

Tonight the Yankees head west for the first time this season when the club faces off with the struggling Oakland Athletics inside Oakland Coliseum. The Yankees are fresh off a great series against the best record holding Kansas City Royals while the A’s continue to struggle and pile up injuries this season. Tonight the Yankees will send CC Sabathia to the mound to face off with the A’s Kendall Graveman. The game will be played at 10:05 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB TV.

  • Sabathia has possibly his worst start of the season last time out when he failed to make it out of the third inning against the Texas Rangers. Sabathia was coming off back-to-back strong starts before the debacle inside Yankee Stadium and will look to get back to his winning ways tonight in Oakland.

  • Graveman is coming off a start in which he pitched six shutout innings against the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday after spending four weeks in the minor leagues. Graveman is taking the roster spot and rotation spot of the injured Drew Pomeranz and will be making his first start this season against the Yankees.

If I get to watch three or four innings of this contest I will consider myself very lucky, I just can’t stay up for these late games anymore. I guess they call that a bit of getting old but anyway if I am MIA on Twitter tonight don’t send a rescue party or call the police, I’m probably snoring on the couch. As long as I wake up to a Yankees victory it all makes it worth it in the morning. Go Yankees!!
