Yankees vs. Angels: Sabathia vs. Wilson

New, comments

The Yankees look sweep their second straight opponent as they host the Angels for the third game of a three game series.

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees host the Angels in the final game of a three game series against the Los Angeles Angels. CC Sabathia (2-7, 5.45 ERA) will take on CJ Wilson (3-4, 3.55 ERA), in a battle of left handed pitchers. Sabathia is coming off a no decision in Seattle, where he pitched 5.2 innings and gave up two runs despite allowing 11 baserunners. With guys like Mike Trout and Albert Pujols in the lineup, he needs to be ready to make big pitches again.

Wilson gave up five runs in six innings in a losing effort against the Rays in his last outing. As many have probably noticed, Michael Pineda should have been starting this game. Joe Girardi has indicated that Big Mike will skip a start with the hopes of restricting his workload. While it is never fun to skip over your ace, Pineda is still a 26-year-old who has made ten starts over the past three seasons. Trotting him out there for 220 innings this season is not an option.

For those in the area, the game should be on YES Network, with the radio broadcast on WFAN. Hopefully, Yankee fans will be keeping those broomsticks busy as the Yankees take on the Angels at 1:05 EST.
