The New York Yankees look to extend a four-game winning streak on Saturday when they play the second leg of their home series with the Los Angeles Angels.
Phil Hughes will take the mound for the Yankees against C.J. Wilson for the Angels. Hughes lost his first start of the season on April 8 when he pitched 4.2 innings against the Tampa Bay Rays, giving up two runs and five hits while striking out five.
New York started the Los Angeles series with a thorough 5-0 beatdown of the Angels. Hiroki Kuroda pitched eight-plus shutout innings and Alex Rodriguez drilled a solo home run to tie Ken Griffey Jr. for fifth on baseball's career home runs list.
