ALCS Game 6: Angels @ Yankees, 8:07 PM (NYY leads 3-2)

Does anyone else think that Brian Fuentes just wants to go on vacation already? The dude just loves to give away the game. He tried again in game 5 after the Angels clawed their way back to a lead in the 7th inning only to have him almost cough it up with an intentional walk, an unintentional walk, and a hit batter. But Fuentes' attempt at sabotage was unsuccessful, to the teams travel back to New York for games 6 and, if necessary, 7.

Andy Pettitte will start for the Yankees. Pettitte pitched game three in Anaheim on Monday, allowing 3 runs on 7 hits in 6.1 innings. He allowed HRs to Vlad Guerrero and Howie Kendrick. Pettitte has historically had trouble with Guerrero so that's a matchup to keep an eye on.

Going for the Angels is Joe Saunders, which, if I were an Angels fan, might concern me. Saunders last pitched on Saturday in the marathon game that the Yankees ended up winning in the 13th inning. He pitched well, allowing just 2 runs on 6 hits in 7 innings, with a home run to Derek Jeter. Saunders gave up 29 home runs in the regular season, which was 2nd in the AL to you-know-who. Between the Yankees power and homer friendly Yankee Stadium, if Saunders loses it the game could be over relatively quickly.
