The Yankees (38-31) continue their tour of National League ballparks on Tuesday at Atlanta’s Turner Field, home of the Braves (33-36).
The Braves are the only NL East team the Yankees are yet to play this season, and the Yanks haven’t had much success against the division so far (5-7). Here are the probable pitchers for the series:
|Date||Yankees starters||Braves starters|
|Tuesday||C.M. Wang (0-5, 12.30)||Tommy Hanson (2-0, 4.08)|
|Wednesday||J. Chamberlain (3-2, 3.89)||Kenshin Kawakami (4-6, 4.42)|
|Thursday||Andy Pettitte (7-3, 4.26)||Derek Lowe (7-5, 4.09)|
As you can see, Wang is still searching for his first win and he will get another shot to do it against one of best pitching prospects in baseball, Hanson. Hanson’s been very good in his last two starts, and Wang will try and build on a 5 IP, 3 ER performance against the Nationals in his last start.
The Yankees are the better team, but both teams aren’t playing their best baseball right now. It’s always fun to see rematches of past World Series, and this is will be no exception.
