Default MLB Baseball Matchup - N.Y. Yankees at L.A. Angels - 8-27-06

N.Y. Yankees (76-52) at L.A. Angels (69-61)

The Angels will try to complete a three-game sweep of the Yankees when they send Joe Saunders (4-1, 3.06) to the mound against Jeff Karstens (0-0, 4.76) in a battle of rookies.

Los Angeles cruised to a 12-7 victory Saturday, improving to 7-2 on its current homestand. Meanwhile, New York has dropped four of five since sweeping a five-game series in Boston last weekend.

The Angels have clinched the season series heading into todayís finale, going 6-3 against the Bronx Bombers (4-1 at home). They also head into this contest having won eight consecutive games on Sunday.

Saunders is coming off a strong start against the Red Sox, as he yielded two unearned runs over 5 2/3 innings, but he wasnít around for the decision as the Angels escaped with a 4-3 victory. The young southpaw has surrendered two earned runs or fewer in five of his six starts, including all four at home, where heís 3-0 with a 1.01 ERA.

Saunders beat the Yankees 7-4 in the Bronx back on Aug. 11, yielding three runs (two earned) on six hits in six innings. Today, he goes up against a potent Yankee lineup thatís batting .282 against lefties (.274 on the road).

Karstens made his big-league debut in Seattle on Tuesday, and he gave up three runs on six hits (two home runs) over 5 2/3 innings. The righthander didnít factor in the decision, as the Yankees lost, 6-5.

The over is 4-2 when Saunders pitches (2-2 at home), while Karstensí start on Tuesday eclipsed the total.

The over is on a 9-2 run for the Yankees, and 10 of their last 13 road games have hurdled the posted price, including the first two games of this series.
