The Yankees lost the first game of the series after blowing a lead last night, but are still 3-1 on this road trip and have won six of their last eight. After Joba Chamberlain’s messy outing, the Yankees still have a chance to win their last series before the All-Star break.
The Yankees have beaten the Angels twice in three games so far, and the last game of the four-game series was postponed.
|Date||Yankees starters||Angels starters|
|Saturday||Andy Pettitte (8-4, 4.53)||Jered Weaver (9-3, 3.15)|
|Sunday||CC Sabathia (8-5, 3.70)||John Lackey (3-4, 5.18)|
Sunday’s starters weigh in at a combined 535 pounds, and can really throw hard. Hopefully Angel Stadium can support the two gargantuans colliding.
|Derek Jeter SS||Chone Figgins DH|
|Johnny Damon LF||Erick Aybar SS|
|Mark Teixeira 1B||Bobby Abreu RF|
|Alex Rodriguez 3B||Mike Napoli C|
|Hideki Matsui DH||Kendry Morales 1B|
|Jorge Posada C||Gary Matthews Jr. CF|
|Robinson Cano 2B||Howard Kendrick 2B|
|Eric Hinske RF||Brandon Wood 3B|
|Brett Gardner CF||Robb Quinlan LF|
Today’s matchup will definitely be the toughest of the two. If the Yanks can get some run support for Pettitte, they have a chance to take the series.
