The LA Angels did not announce their pitching rotation at press time for their series with the New York Yankees. The Yankees on Friday will start right hander Hiroki Kuroda who makes his 18th appearance of the year. The former LA Dodger will look to rebound after a poor outing by allowing six earned runs and ten hits in 5 2/3rd innings against the Boston Red Sox last Friday night. Kuroda is 8-7 on the year with an ERA of 3.50. The Angels have turned around their fortunes since losing 14 of their first 20 games of the year. The team is 42-24 since their awful beginning and leads the wildcard standing in the American League. Since adding Mike Trout and Mark Trumbo to the everyday lineup the team has delivered offensively and now sit 4th in all of Major League Baseball with a team batting average of .268 at the All Star Break.

On the mound for Boston on Friday night will be lefty Franklin Morales as he opposes Jeremy Hellickson for the Rays. Morales had pitched well going into his start on July 7th against the Yankees. The Red Sox hurler was lit up for 6 runs with six hits and allowed four home runs in defeat. Morales is 1-2 on the year with an ERA of 3.50 in 46 1/3rd innings pitched. It has been a disappointing year for the Red Sox as the club entered the All Star Break at 43-43. Tampa Bay has been hit with injuries to key offensive stars and sits at 45-31 in the standings. Hellickson has five losses and two no decisions in his past seven starts for Tampa Bay. The Rays right hander has faced Boston three times in 2012 and has allowed nine earned runs in 18 2/3rds innings pitched.
