Happy Father’s Day! The Yankees look to avoid yet another sweep this afternoon when they play the Angels. They will try and do so without Mark Teixeira, who was sent back to New York early to get his wrist examined. Teix re-aggrivated it yesterday and was removed from the game, obviously not good news for the team. Probably the best pitching matchup of the weekend, CC Sabathia takes the mound against Jered Weaver. The Yankees return home after the game  to begin a nine-game homestand after a day off tomorrow. Check out our game preview here. New York Yankees (37-31) Brett Gardner CF Ichiro Suzuki RF Robinson Cano 2B Travis Hafner DH Vernon Wells LF Lyle Overbay 1B Jayson Nix 3B Reid Brignac SS Chris Stewart C LHP CC Sabathia (6-5, 4.07 ERA) Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (30-38) Peter Bourjos CF Mike Trout LF Albert Pujols DH Mark Trumbo RF Howie Kendrick 2B Chris Iannetta C Erick Aybar SS Alberto Callaspo 3B Brendan Harris 1B RHP Jered Weaver (2-3, 3.77 ERA) Game Time: 3:35 pm EST – Angel Stadium – Anaheim, Calif.
