Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 6/20

The New York Yankees got spanked out on the West Coast last week. There’s no need to equivocate or mince words here. I’m not one to sugar coat things either, the team got spanked and they didn’t like it. The Yankees went 1-6 against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and the Oakland Athletics last week, two teams they should have absolutely destroyed in my bias yet humble and informed opinion, but the good news about baseball is tomorrow is another game and another series in another town. Tonight the Yankees begin a three-game set with those same Angels but this time in the Bronx where the Yankees have been spectacular this season. In the opener the Yankees will send Michael Pineda to the mound to square off with Parker Bridwell for the Angels. Someone wake the offense up, nap time is over.

Pineda was not sharp in his last start allowing five runs on 10 hits in a no-decision against these Angels. Pineda has had a rough month of June and has been especially troubled out on the road this month so hopefully a little home cooking will do the big right-hander some good.

Bridwell will make his second career MLB start tonight in the Bronx in place of Matt Shoemaker. Shoemaker was added to the disabled list with a strain in his right forearm extensor in his last start against the Yankees. Bridwell came into the game in relief tossing 3.2 innings against New York in the start on June 14.

The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET inside Yankee Stadium and can be seen on WPIX Channel 11, MLB Network and MLB TV. You can also follow along in your cars and on the radio by tuning into John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman on WFAN. Enjoy the game, turn the losing streak around and as always… Go Yankees!
