Tonight, with portly hero CC Sabathia taking the hill for the New York Yankees, they will look to get back to their winning ways.  CC has been his usual self, posting a 2.98 ERA and giving the Yankees depth in nearly all of his starts.  He will look to keep things going against the Angels, who defeated the Yankees 3-2 last night.

Opposing CC will be Ervin Santana, who has posted a 4.34 ERA and 3.82 FIP in 76.2 innings so far this season.  Santana will feature a four-seam fastball in the neighborhood of 92-93 MPH, a slider (his best pitch), and a change up. 

Look for the game thread at 8:30.
