Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 6/30

The New York Yankees and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim will face off in their second game of their three game series to start the week in Angels Stadium. The Yankees will get their second look at the recently activated Ivan Nova tonight as he makes his second start since Tommy John surgery against Andrew Heaney for the Angels. The game will be played at 10:05 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB TV.

  • Nova made his first start since undergoing ulnar collateral ligament replacement surgery, commonly known as Tommy John surgery, five days ago and he returned to the Bronx in style. Nova threw 6.2 scoreless innings of three-hit ball against Cole Hamels and the Philadelphia Phillies leading the Yankees to a victory. Nova walked two batters and had one strikeout in his 92 pitch afternoon that resulted in his first victory of the 2015 season.

  • Heaney will also be making just his second start of the 2015 season tonight in Anaheim after holding the Houston Astros to just one run on four hits in six innings of work in his first start. The Astros have a tough offense that gave the Yankees pitchers fits for four games so this may be another tough head-to-head matchup for Nova and the Yankees tonight.

The Yankees play an afternoon game of sort’s tomorrow afternoon in Anaheim as they have a 4:05 pm local start and your normal run of the mill 7:05 pm ET start over here on the East Coast, boy I can’t wait for that. First things first though the team needs to win today before they start thinking about tomorrow. No worries though I believe Mr. Nova is up to the task. Go Yankees!
