Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Chicago White Sox 7/6


The finale between the New York Yankees and the Chicago White Sox will take place today leaving just a couple games in a game days before we get the All Star break. I don’t know about you but I could use the All-Star break to recharge the batteries and I’m sure a lot of the Yankees players could as well. So in the finale of this three game set the Yankees will send Michael Pineda to the mound looking to continue his recent trend of good starts while the White Sox will counter with Miguel Gonzalez.

Pineda has been excellent over his last six starts which began after a slight adjustment to his delivery and arm angle was suggested by pitching coach Larry Rothschild. Pineda has posted a 2.74 ERA in that span and has held opposing batters to just a .201 batting average. The return of Big Mike ladies and gentleman.

Gonzalez will be making his 14th career start against the New York Yankees tonight after seeing a lot of them as a member of the Baltimore Orioles. In his career Gonzalez owns a 3-4 record against the Bronx Bombers so here’s to hoping Gonzalez, like the Yankees this season, is afraid of the .500 mark.

The game will be played at 8:10 pm ET inside US Cellular Field and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB TV. Any series where the Yankees don’t see Chris Sale or Jose Quintana should be a win but this series did not go according to plan. Truth be told the Yankees should have swept this series but so is baseball and so is life. Let’s just get a win and get the hell out of dodge. Go Yankees!
