The New York Yankees look for their sixth consecutive victory on Saturday afternoon when they host the Los Angeles Angels at Yankee Stadium. (Game Time: 1:05 p.m., TV Schedule: YES)
New York stole a 6-5 victory Friday night by scoring four runs in the eighth inning. Mark Teixeira tied the game at 5-5 with a three-run homer and Russell Martin sent an RBI single to right field later in the same frame for the winning margin.
Friday night's contest was the Yankees' first since the All-Star break. Freddy Garcia will start for New York. The Angels are expected to counter with Jerome Williams, who has not made a start since June 18 due to an asthma attack.
