Yankees Visit the Angels

The New York Yankees, who march first in the AL East with a three game lead over the Boston Red Sox will face the Angels in the third game of the series after each team won one game in the first two.  The Yanks, who have been very solid throughout the season are 7-3 in thier last ten games and just saw their six game winning streak snapped last night when they lost to the Angels 2-3.

Ironically the Yankees are 0-12 on the season when they score less than 3 runs.   They'll face the Angels who are 2nd in the AL West and 6-4 in their last 10 games.  They have been flopping back and forth from win to loss lately and are hoping their team leader Mike Trout can come back from a broken finger.  Trout looks like he'll be ready before the All Star game on July 11th but his return is still up in the air.

Michael Pineda and Matt Shoemaker get the starts for their respective teams. Pineda is 9-3 on the season and Shoemaker is 9-4.  Both are 2-1 in their last three starts but Pineda sports the better ERA with 3.50 per 9 innings.  Yankee batting lineup is better than the Angels and the pinstripes get the better pitcher on the mound tonight. I think the Yankees win
