MLB Today: Subway Series begins, heartfelt day for Angels

mlb6NEW YORK –– Major League Baseball has a 15-game slate today, and it features the Yankees and Red Sox’ returns from the London Series over the weekend.

Boston will begin a series out in Toronto, while the Yankees will begin a two-game interleague set with their cross-town foes, the New York Mets, in the latest edition of the Subway Series.

Today is also going to be an emotional day for the Los Angeles Angels, who must continue their series with the Texas Rangers after the untimely and unfortunate passing of Tyler Skaggs, one of their starting pitchers.
