The New York Yankees will throw left hander Andy Pettite on Tuesday to face the Angels hitters. The veteran left hander has been quite effective in his return to the big leagues. He stands with an ERA of just 2.53 on the season. He has done a good job with this WHIP this year with a 1.08 percentage. That is one base runner per inning as low WHIP is very good for pitchers because it means you are less likely to give up big innings. The Yankees were a hot team entering Anaheim on Memorial Day and were on the short end of a 9-8 defeat to the Angels. The good news was the Yankees hitters were outstanding against Angels pitching in game one of this series. You can pretty much blame Yankees starter Phil Hughes last night for that loss. Pettite is in better form than Hughes as he has allowed just two earned runs in his past two starts working 15 innings. Pettite has been good against the Angels allowing just two earned runs in this past three starts working 20 1/3rd innings.
The inconsistent Dan Haren takes the hill for the Angels tonight. He is always around the plate so the Yankees will hit him tonight. Team record behind Haren in his five home starts is 0-5 in the 2012 campaign and the Angels hurler sports a home ERA over four runs. Also be aware here that Haren threw 124 pitches in his last start on Thursday at Seattle. Haren’s line over his past three games looks good but faced three of the worst offenses in baseball in the Mariners, Athletics and Padres. The Angels has struggled against left handed pitching this season as the club pushes across just 3.3 runs and has a team batting average of .233. Let’s take Pettite as his hitting lineup will get to Haren tonight with the best pick at the sports book.
