Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Oakland Athletics 6/15

Another day and another series for the New York Yankees out on the West Coast as tonight the team begins a four-game set with the Oakland Athletics. This weekend has all the makings of being something special for New York as the Yankees, on paper at least, should do well in this series. The team may also get Aroldis Chapman back off the disabled list which never hurt any team trying to reach the postseason and do well. In the contest tonight the Yankees will send Jordan Montgomery to the mound to square off with Sonny Gray for the A’s inside the Oakland Coliseum. Enjoy the game.

Montgomery will make his 12th start of the season tonight inside the Coliseum and the 12th start of his young MLB career against the Oakland Athletics. The Yankees will have to rely more heavily on the big lefty now that CC Sabathia is injured with a left hamstring strain and the good news for New York is that Montgomery has won each of his last two starts against the Toronto Blue Jays and the Baltimore Orioles.

Gray will be making his third start of the month already tonight and is still looking for his first decision of the month. Gray has two no-decisions to show for his efforts in June despite pitching well in those two starts. Gray pitched especially well in his last start against the Tampa Bay Rays striking out ten. 

The game will be played at 10:05 pm ET inside the Oakland Coliseum and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB TV. You can also follow along in your cars and on the radio by tuning into the WFAN broadcast with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman. Go Yankees!
