9/22 – Yankees at Angels
If at first you don’t succeed … and the second time you don’t either
… try to clinch a playoff spot on Tuesday against the Angels. That’s
what the Yankees will do tonight, needing either a victory or a Rangers
loss to secure their 14th postseason berth in 15 seasons.
is a postseason audition for Chad Gaudin, who is trying to prove he
belongs on the roster after game No. 162. It’s also an opportunity for
the Yankees to try and get out of their own way after losing six of
their last 10 games. A win tonight still puts them in position to
finish the trip on a positive note with a series victory, something
that hasn’t happened all that often.
But they’ve got to get that win first, so we might be getting ahead of ourselves.
|Pitching: RHP Chad Gaudin (1-0 3.68).|
