The New York Yankees head west to take the field with the Los Angeles Angels in Monday action.
The New York Yankees seemed to have righted the ship the past week with an eye on first in the American League East. The Yankees had won three of four and were shooting for the road sweep of Houston before the offense went flat in a 3-1 loss on Sunday. Michael Pineda was a tough luck loser with all three runs allowed (two earned) on seven hits while striking out eight in an eight inning complete game effort. The Bronx Bombers managed two hits and walked twice with Brett Gardner smacking an RBI double that scored Stephen Drew. Veteran left hander CC Sabathia toes the rubber against the Angels for the second time this season. Sabathia struggled last time out in an 11-6 loss to Philadelphia with six runs plated on eight hits in 4.2 innings.

The Los Angeles Angels are meandering around the .500 mark and that won’t be enough to capture the American League West crown. The Angels survived Felix Hernandez 3-2 in ten innings on Sunday and have won three of four. Hector Santiago was outstanding with a run allowed on three hits through seven frames before Huston Street surrendered a homer to blow the save in the 9th. The Angels posted seven hits and walked twice with Kole Calhoun going 2-4 with an RBI and the winning run on a wild pitch while Erick Aybar smacked a pinch hit single. Lefty CJ Wilson is scheduled to oppose the Yankees on Monday night at home. Wilson was bombed 13-3 by Houston in his last outing with seven runs plated on eight hits and a pair of homers in just 3.1 frames.
The over is 8-2 in New York’s last 10 overall and is 8-2 in their last 10 on grass while the Yankees are 5-11 in Sabathia’s last 16 starts on grass. The over is 10-1 in Wilson’s last 11 Monday starts and the Angels are 17-5 in Wilson’s last 22 home starts. The Yankees have been dominant in this match up so beware…
