The New York Yankees also stumbled out of the blocks this year but once the calendar turned the page to June it has found its footing and stormed into the lead in the AL East. The Yankees head into the second half of the season with a full seven-game lead over Baltimore in the division with an overall record of 52-33.

Despite injuries to CC Sabathia and Andy Pettitte that landed both starters on the DL, New York has not skipped a beat with a 4-1 record in its last five games. The Yankees are pounding-out an average of 4.85 runs a game and are fourth in the AL in pitching with a team ERA of 3.73. Hiroki Kuroda is slated to get the start in this one.
