After an eventful road trip, the Yankees are finally home. Fresh off a pair of losses to the Texas Rangers, they’re looking to get back in winning form at Yankee Stadium. Tonight could be a good chance to do it, as the Bombers have their ace on the mound against a slumping Angels squad. Los Angeles is just 4-6 over their last ten games.

Luis Severino gets the ball in game one. He is trying to shake off a rough outing against the Royals. He had to grind through the entire outing — six innings of three-run ball — without his best stuff. His track record, including a 2.35 ERA and 1.95 FIP this season, suggests he’s more than capable of making adjustments and pitching at a high level.

As for the Angels, left-hander Andrew Heaney will make tonight’s start. He’s pitched well all season. Last week he held the Houston Astros to one run over eight innings. Don’t write Heaney off. He’s good.

First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 PM. You can watch on YES locally, or MLB Network for the out-of-market readers. WFAN 660/101.9 FM and WADO 1280 have the radio broadcast, while FOX Sports GO has you covered on the live stream. Go Yankees!
