Come on, smile Vidal. - Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Yankees try to win the series against the Angels behind substitute starter Vidal Nuno.

The Yankees have lost more than they've won against the Angels in the last several years; the Halos are the only team to regularly give the Bombers fits. Some of that is the natural result of two very good, evenly matched teams facing each other a few times each season- like the postseason, anything can happen. And some of that is just plain old bad timing.

There's never really a good time to start a guy with a 7 ERA who has only managed to last 5 innings once this season. Ladies and gentlemen, Vidal Nuno.

In the red corner is 27-year-old lefty Hector Santiago, pitching to an ERA north of 5 and coming off a 4 run, 4.2 IP outing at Yankee Stadium. The Yankees gain a point on familiarity, but Santiago wins it back by pitching in his home hitter's park.

With a win, the Yankees could take the season series against the Angels 4-2 and bring that record over the last few years a little closer to even.
