Countering for the Angels will be Dustin Moseley, who, in two appearances against the Yankees, both in relief, allowed four hits and two runs in three innings.
NYY: RHP Phil Hughes (2-1, 4.44 ERA)
Hughes only gave up two earned runs in his last start, but the Orioles knocked him out of the game after six hits and five innings of work. New York's big right-hander walked two and struck out four in settling for a no-decision. This will be Hughes' first career start against the Angels.
LAA: RHP Dustin Moseley (4-2, 4.84 ERA)
In his last start, Moseley showed his resilience and toughness in limiting the Blue Jays to two runs while yielding nine hits, a walk and a hit batsman. He repeatedly worked out of trouble by making big pitches when he needed them, keeping his team in the game. Relying on movement and location, he still isn't getting as deep into games as the club would like, however.
Player to watch
No Angels hitter has faced Hughes, but left-handers have hit the youngster the hardest in his five starts at the Major League level, batting .265 off him as opposed to the .216 clip that right-handers manage.
