Game Preview: Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim @ New York Yankees 6/5

The New York Yankees are well rested after their off day yesterday and come into tonight’s contest with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim boasting a modest three game winning streak. New York swept away Felix Hernandez, Robinson Cano and the Seattle Mariners earlier in the week before returning home to the Bronx to start this series. On the mound for the Yankees tonight is Nathan Eovaldi who will face off with the Angels starter Jered Weaver. The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network, MLB Network and MLB TV.

  • Eovaldi is coming off a start in which he allowed a season-high 11 hits to an anemic Oakland Athletics offense in 4.2 innings of work. Eovaldi has faced the Angels twice in his career as a member of the Miami Marlins posting a 6.75 ERA with a 0-1 record.

  • Weaver is coming off five straight quality starts after finding a mechanical issue in his windup early in May. Weaver fixed his delivery in a bullpen session and has been on a roll ever since which is never a good sign for the New York Yankees.

The solution is simple, the more the Yankees win now the less they will have to win in September and into October. The Boston Red Sox are primed to make more than a few additions at this year’s trading deadline while the Seattle Mariners are already adding pieces for a potential Wild Card run. New York needs to win games because as the great Yogi Berra once said about 5,000,000 times, it’s getting late early. We’re already into June and before you know it we’ll be in August and September. Win now, beat the Angels. Go Yankees!
