Game 33: Yankees at Angels
The Yankees will play the final game of their three-game series against the Angels tonight here in Anaheim. Vidal Nuno has the ball for his fourth start and seventh appearance of the season, as manager Joe Girardi is keeping the Nuno and John Ryan Murphy battery together. Nuno faced the Angels on April 26 back in New York, allowing three runs and five hits in 4 1/3 innings and taking a no-decision.
The Angels give the ball to left-hander Hector Santiago, who hasn’t had a whole lot of luck this season. He’s winless in six starts — last time out, Santiago started with five scoreless innings against the Rangers but then allowed five runs in the next two frames. The Angels have scored just 11 runs for Santiago over those six starts.
The game will be televised on the YES Network and can be heard on WFAN.
Here are tonight’s lineups:
Jacoby Ellsbury CF
Vidal Nuno (0-0, 6.87)
Collin Cowgill RF
Hector Santiago LHP (0-5, 5.01)
