The New York Yankees and the Los Angeles Angels will meet again to play a 3-game series at the Los Angeles-Alameda County Coliseum. The Angels swept the Blue Jays in their last series while the Yankees tied 2-2 vs Oakland.
New York Yankees
The Yankees get here with a 78-49 record and have won 5 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging 5.03 runs per game. They're batting for .241 AVG, 640 runs scored in 1033 hits and 200 home runs, ranking #2 in offense in the league, behind the Los Angeles Dodgers. Aaron Judge leads the team and is batting for .297 with 49 home runs and 109 RBI.
Defensively they are allowing 3.49 runs per game and rank #3 in the league. All-Star Nestor Cortes leads the pitching staff with a 2.68 ERA, 133 strikeouts and 9 wins recorded with the Yanks.
Frankie Montas (4-10, 3.84 ERA) will be on the mound for the Yankees in the 1st game of the series. Montas didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Mets, allowing two runs on six hits and a walk over 5.2 innings. He struck out six. He is 4-2 with an ERA of 2.30 and 79 strikeouts in 15 appearances against the Angels in his career.
Los Angeles Angels
The Angels get here with a 54-73 record and have lost 7 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 3.79 runs per game. They're batting for .227 AVG, 489 runs scored in 973 hits and 145 home runs, ranking #25 in offense in the league tied with the Kansas City Royals. Shohei Ohtani leads the team with a .265 avg, 28 home runs and 77 RBI.
Defensively they are allowing 4.20 runs per game and rank #15 in the league. Shohei Ohtani leads the pitching staff with a 2.67 ERA, 176 strikeouts and 11 wins recorded.
Probable Pitcher: Jose Suarez (4-6, 4.19 ERA)
Suarez will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Angels. Suarez was charged with a loss Tuesday after he pitched 5.1 innings, giving up three runs on eight hits while striking out five versus the Rays. He has a 1-1 record with an ERA of 6.23 and 14 strikeouts in 3 appearances versus the Yankees in his career.
NY Yankees are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games.
NY Yankees are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against LA Angels.
The total has gone UNDER in 6 of NY Yankees' last 7 games on the road.
The total has gone OVER in 4 of LA Angels' last 6 games.
LA Angels are 4-9 SU in their last 13 games.
LA Angels are 4-12 SU in their last 16 games at home.
The Yankees struggled offensively in their last 2 games of the series vs Oakland scoring only 1.5 runs per game but they are 3-0 vs Angels this season. Frankie Montas will take the mound for the Yankees who was solid in his last start vs Mets allowing 2 runs in 5.2 innings. Jose Suarez will start for the Angels who has been up and down this season and has allowed 3 runs in each of his last 2 starts. With the Yankees struggling offensively and Montas on the mound I think the best play is the under.
PICK: Under 8.5 (-110)
