Preview: New York Yankees @ Los Angeles Angels 5/7

The New York Yankees wrap up a quick three game West Coast road trip tonight when they take on the Los Angeles Angels on Anaheim in Angels Stadium. The Yankees will send the struggling Vidal Nuno to the mound to face off with Hector Santiago for the Angels in a battle of left handed starting pitchers. The game will be played at 10:05 pm ET and can be see on the YES Network, MLB TV, and can be heard on the radio with WFAN.

The last time we saw Nuno on the mound was when he threw 4.1 IP against these same Los Angeles Angels. Nuno allowed three runs and took a no decision against the Angels. This will be Nuno's fourth start of the season after starting the 2014 year in the Yankees bullpen.

Santiago has started against the Yankees once this season and took a loss and conveniently the man that opposed him was Nuno. Santiago has been the brunt of a little bad luck though as five of the 18 earned runs against him this season have come off relief pitchers after Santiago left them on base. Santiago also has the sixth lowest run support in the league, which doesn't help.

Go Yankees!!
