Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 6/22


The New York Yankees need a win. The team has gone on a recent skid against west coast teams and are in danger of falling out of the American League East division title race. There’s still plenty of time left this season and there’s still plenty of more wins in the Yankees future but after a prolonged losing streak you, as a fan and as a player, always like to start a prolonged winning streak just to even it out. That mission continues tonight as the Yankees send Luis Severino to the mound to square off with Jesse Chavez for the Angels. Someone wake the offense, T-minus seven hours until game time. Someone wake up Tyler Clippard too while you’re at it.




Severino got knocked around a bit in his last start against the Oakland Athletics but he ultimately survived a four-run second inning to complete six innings of work. Severino allowed those four runs on four hits with four walks in a no-decision. Severino has not lost a decision since May 1 of this year.




Chavez is making his 15th appearance of the season tonight in the Bronx and his 14th start overall for the Angels. In his last outing the right-hander pitched seven innings against the Kansas City Royals allowing just two runs.





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