Preview: New York Yankees vs. Oakland Athletics 6/5

The New York Yankees and the Oakland Athletics will play in a getaway game for both clubs this afternoon at Yankee Stadium. The Yankees will send Masahiro Tanaka to the mound, Happy Tanaka Day by the way, to face off with Drew Pomeranz for the Athletics. The game will be played at 1:05 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network, MLB Network, MLB TV, and can be heard on the radio with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman on WFAN.

Tanaka is making his first start of the month of June after capturing the AL Pitcher of the Month Award for the month of May. Tanaka allowed just four hits and an unearned run last Saturday against the Minnesota Twins at home in Yankees Stadium for his eight victory of the season. Tanaka has a league leading 2.06 ERA this season and has thrown over 100 pitches nine times in eleven starts this season.

Pomeranz is coming off a start in which he allowed five runs in 5.2 innings against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Pomeranz had allowed just five earned runs in 32.2 innings all season long before his last outing. All in all Pomeranz got the victory and improved his record to 5-2 on the season.
