The Yankees are back in the Bronx after a pretty disappointing 4-6 road trip. They begin this week long stay at home with a four game series against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim California in the United States of America on the planet Earth. Masahiro Tanaka pitched pretty well his last game against the Blue Jays, but ultimately got the loss due to lack of run support. Hopefully the Yankees offense will not doom him to a similar fate today as they face off against Matt Shoemaker. Rob Refsnyder is once again getting the start at first base. Meanwhile, former Yankee legend Gregorio Petit will be playing shortstop for the Angels. The game starts at 7:05PM and you can watch it on YES Network.
