The Yankees' Devils: The Yankees are 2-4 against the Angels this season and 5-11 the last two. They have a 4-game lead for home-field advantage in the playoffs, and the Yankees have not won a game in Anaheim this season so it is important to win these games against them.
More Milestones: Johnny Damon is one home run shy of his personal best 25 home runs. Mariano Rivera is 2 strikeouts away from 1,000 in his career.

UPDATE 8:01: You've got to love Nick Swisher. The trade for him didn't create too much buzz when it happened, but it's turned out great for Brian Cashman and the Yankees.
