The Yankees will face off against right-handed pitcher Dan Straily this afternoon. The 24-year old made 7 successful starts back in 2012, but in 2013, has only pitched two starts. His first game came against the Astros, who he held to just 2 runs over 6.2 innings. After some time back at Triple-A, the starter returned to face the Angels and allowed 6 runs over 4.2 innings. Straily is a flyball pitcher, with a tendency to give up home runs to left-handers. Thus, the Yankees are sending out this lineup today.
Andy Pettitte takes the mound as he tries to bounce back from a weak outing against the Astros. Watch out for how the cutter responds early, as he blamed that pitch for his failures in his last start.
The game starts at 1:05 PM EST and you can catch it on YES. Go Yankees!
