Josh Beckett vs Joba Chamberlain

Mostly cloudy,rain. Game time temperature around 55.

Complete Coverage >


The Yankees made Joba Chamberlain a starting pitcher to see if he could become their Josh Beckett. Tonight we get a chance to see the two hard-throwing right-handers square off.

I hate to say a May 5 game is a really important one. BUT, after losing the first four games of the season to Boston, the Yankees really need a win tonight.
