Game 15: Chicago Cubs at New York Yankees - Wood vs Pineda

Cubs at Yankees Part 2!

Ron Antonelli

The second game of a doubleheader is always more enjoyable after a win, don't you agree?

Tonight will be Jackie Robinson Night. The #42 most Yankee fans will be excited to see will be Derek Jeter who plans to play in the nightcap. With only Shawn Kelley used in the first game, the Yanks have a nearly full bullpen to back up Michael Pineda.

They'll face Travis Wood, the Cubs lefty, who went 9-12 despite a 3.20 ERA last season in 200 innings. His success last season stemmed from giving up few hits (1.15 WHIP) and very few home runs. The Bronx Bombers are going to try to make his 2014 a little rockier.
