The Angels have three players that are swinging good bats against the Yankees. Erick Aybar has played in all 4 games for the Angels against the Yanks and he is 4 for 14 (.286 avg, .643 OPS) with 1 run scored, 1 RBI and 2 stolen bases. He has been a pest for Yankees’ pitchers when he gets on base. Howie Kendrick is swinging the best bat on the team right now. In three games against the Yanks, Kendrick is 4 for 11 (.364 avg, 1.182 OPS) with 3 runs scored, a triple, homer and 1 RBI. The Angels should consider batting Kendrick leadoff and dropping Chone Figgins to the bottom of the lineup due to his frigid bat. Backup catcher Jeff Mathis is also swinging a hot stick. He has played in 3 games against the Yanks in this series and he is 3 for 6 (.500 avg, 1.500 OPS) with 3 doubles and 1 RBI. The Angels need the rest of the lineup to start hitting or the next game will be their last of the year.
