Game 36: Yankees at Brewers

The Yankees are off to a quick start this afternoon, putting three first-inning runs up on Matt Garza thanks to Kelly Johnson’s two-run double and a Yangervis Solarte sacrifice fly.

Let’s see if David Phelps can make it hold up; Phelps is making his second start of the year after beginning the season in the bullpen. With news of CC Sabathia’s knee injury filtering out of the Yankees clubhouse, it appears that Phelps will be hanging around the starting five for a while longer.

This game is being televised on the YES Network and can be heard on WFAN.

Game 35: Yankees at Brewers

Greetings from America’s dairyland, as the Yankees will play the second game of a three-game series against the Brewers tonight here at Miller Park. The Yankees have won three straight games, marking a season-high road winning streak. They’re also 14-9 in their last 23 games since April 12 after starting the year 5-6.

New York will try to push it to four straight wins tonight behind CC Sabathia, who figures to get a good ovation here from the Brewers faithful. Sabathia was superhuman for about three months down the stretch in Milwaukee, and they haven’t forgotten his selfless contributions on three days’ rest.

Lately, it’s been a different story for Sabathia, who allowed five runs and a season-high 10 hits over 3 2/3 innings against the Rays on May 4 at Yankee Stadium. This will be his eighth start of the year, and he has lost his last two outings.

“Everybody’s making a big deal out of my last game,” Sabathia said. “I mean, it was bad obviously, you know. Coming off the heels of two games I probably should have won makes it look even worse. I’m not as panicked I guess as everybody else is and trying to make changes and stuff. It is what it is.”
 
The Brewers are giving the ball to right-hander Kyle Lohse, who is making his eighth start of the season. He has had a couple of no-decisions in his last two outings after running off a four-start win streak in April. Last time out on May 4, Lohse held the Reds to two runs and eight hits over 6 1/3 innings, with a walk and two strikeouts.

The game will be televised on the YES Network and can be heard on WFAN.

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.

Game 32: Yankees at Angels

After last night’s fireworks and forgettable walk-fest, the Yankees are back at it tonight as they take on the Angels in the second game of a three-game series here at Angel Stadium.

New York has lost five of its last six games and will try to turn things around tonight behind Hiroki Kuroda, who will be making his seventh start of the season and has lost his last two starts, including to these Angels on April 25 in New York.

The Angels counter with left-hander C.J. Wilson, who is also making his seventh start of the season. He ranks second in the American League with three starts permitting one run or less, and has won his last two outings.

The game will be televised on the YES Network and can be heard on WFAN.

The Yankees made a pre-game roster move to activate infielder Brendan Ryan from the disabled list, placing right-hander Michael Pineda on the disabled list as his suspension expired.
