Yankees Vs. Twins, Game 2 Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule, Pitching Matchups And More

New York Yankees ace CC Sabathia hasn't started the 2012 season like he's wanted, and on Tuesday he'll get a chance to right the ship when he faces the Minnesota Twins at Yankees Stadium (7:05 p.m. ET on YES Network). Sabathia (0-0, 6.35 ERA) will oppose the Twins' Francisco Liriano (0-1, 10.00 ERA) who has also had some early-season struggles.

On Monday, Minnesota (3-7) pummeled Yankee starting pitcher Freddie Garcia for five earned runs in just 5 2/3-innings to collect the series-opening victory 7-3.

Despite the slow start to the season, the Yankees (5-5) are looking for their third series victory of the season, while the Twins could win their second series victory of the year.
