Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 6/13

So I know I asked a similar question when the New York Yankees last made the trip to Tropicana Field to square off with the Tampa Bay Rays but I will ask the same question again this afternoon. If the Yankees play on the West Coast in the middle of the damn night and no one on the East Coast is there to see it, did it really happen? I mean, really. I know I go on this whole “I hate West Coast games” rant every single season but I can’t help it. I hate West Coast games. Anyway, tonight the Yankees will face off with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in the second of their three-game set this week in Anaheim. The Yankees will send CC Sabathia to the mound looking for his sixth straight victory while the Angels will counter with JC Ramirez.

Sabathia heads into this start looking for his sixth straight victory of the season and comes in fresh off eight shutout innings against the Boston Red Sox in his last start. In those five starts Sabathia is posting a 1.11 ERA while holding opponents to a .212 batting average.

Ramirez was not sharp in his last start against the Detroit Tigers like Sabathia was against the Red Sox. In that start Ramirez yielded four runs on 10 hits in just five innings of work. Ramirez will have to do better than that if he wants to beat the Yankees powerful offense tonight though in Anaheim.

The game will be played at 10:07 pm ET inside Angel Stadium of Anaheim and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB TV. You can also follow along in your cars and on the radio by listening to WFAN. Me personally? 5:00 am comes far too early for me to stay up for these West Coast games so I’ll likely be snoozing by the time this is an official game. Either way, enjoy and Go Yankees!
