Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 6/6

Two games down and one more to go between the New York Yankees and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim inside the legendary Yankee Stadium. The Yankees bullpen imploded late in the game on Friday night but New York still held out for a victory and head into the Bronx looking for another tonight. The Yankees will send CC Sabathia, not Michael Pineda who's start has been skipped in order to save some innings on his arm, to the mound to face off with the Angels lefty CJ Wilson. The game will be plated at 1:05 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB TV.

  • Sabathia is replacing Michael Pineda in the rotation as the Yankees are skipping Big Mike's start. Sabathia has given up 11 runs across 8.1 innings in his last two starts so you definitely want him starting this afternoon against the Angels rather than facing off with Bryce Harper and the Washington Nationals. 

  • Wilson is coming off a start in which he allowed five runs to the Tampa Bay Rays in a loss for the Angels. Wilson admitted to too many walks and too many hit batters in the loss, a trend that hopefully continues this afternoon in the Bronx.

The Yankees will stay home for a quick two game set with the Washington Nationals inside Yankee Stadium next week with a day off on Monday and Thursday before the team heads to Camden Yard to face off with the Baltimore Orioles. New York is also preparing for the 2015 MLB First Year Players Draft that goes down tomorrow night on MLB Network so be sure to tune in for that. Go Yankees!
