Having taken full advantage of a Memorial Day weekend gift from the schedule maker, the Yankees vacated the Bay Area last night headed back to the big leagues.

Starting tonight in Southern California, the Yankees open a three-game series against the rejuvenated Angels riding a season-high five-game winning streak.

However, Yankees fans should remind themselves the final three victories in that streak were against the Triple-A's, easily the worst hitting club in the game.

Following yesterday's 2-0 win over the hapless A's in front of 25,078 at the Coliseum, where the Yankees received eight strong innings from Hiroki Kuroda, the Bombers prepped for the Angels, who have won six straight.
