The New York Yankees left the bats at home on Tuesday as they lost to the Angels. Mark Teixeira hit a home run, Brett Gardener had a hit, and Chase Headley reached via walk as the Yankees scored one run on two hits. Starting pitcher Ivan Nova allowed eight hits and two runs while striking out seven over 5.1 innings to take the loss and fall to 1-1 for the season. For Wednesday’s game the Yankees start Nathan Eovaldi who has allowed 105 hits and 44 earned runs while striking out 60 over 82.1 innings for a 7-2 record and a 4.81 ERA.
Los Angeles is 5-0 in their last five games, 5-1 as a favorite, and 4-1 in Shoemaker’s last five starts against the AL East. New York is 8-1 in game three of a series, 3-8 in their last 11 games, and 5-2 in Eovaldi’s last seven starts. New York is 15-32 in their last 47 games in Los Angeles.
This should be another good one but I expect the Yankees bats to be much better here and I look for them to salvage a win.
