The New York Yankees and the Los Angeles Angels will play the 2nd game of the series at the Los Angeles-Alameda County Coliseum on Tuesday night. The Angels beat the Yankees 4-3 in the first game of the series and have now won 4 games in a row.
New York Yankees
The Yankees get here with a 78-50 record and have lost their last 3 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.
Jameson Taillon (12-4, 3.84 ERA) will be on the mound for the Yankees in the 2nd game of the series. Taillon earned the win over Oakland on Thursday, pitching six innings and allowing one run on six hits and no walks while striking out two batters. He has a record of 2-1 with an ERA of 6.00 and 15 strikeouts in 3 appearances against the Angels in his career.
Los Angeles Angels
The Angels get here with a 55-73 record and have won their last 4 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: Mike Mayers (1-0, 4.46 ERA)
Mayers will be on the mound in the 2nd game of the series for the Angels. Mayers was called up to the Angels' six-man rotation last week as a replacement for the struggling Touki Toussaint after throwing 5.1 innings in long relief on August 17. In his first start of the season last Wednesday in Tampa Bay, Mayers was excellent, as he struck out five over five shutout frames while scattering two hits and three walks. He has a record of 1-0 with an ERA of 9.00 and 2 strikeouts in 2 appearances versus the Yankees in his career.
NY Yankees are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against LA Angels.
The total has gone UNDER in 7 of NY Yankees' last 8 games on the road.
NY Yankees are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games when playing on the road against LA Angels.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of LA Angels' last 5 games against NY Yankees.
LA Angels are 5-12 SU in their last 17 games at home.
The Yankees continue to struggle offensively as they have scored only only 2.2 runs per game in their last 4 games. Jameson Taillon will take the mound for the Yankees who is coming from a solid start and dominated the Angels earlier this season. Mike Mayers will start for the Angels who was outstanding in his first start in the season allowing no run across 5 innings pitched vs Rays. With the Yankees struggling offensively and this pitching matchup I think the under hits again.
PICK: Under 8.5 (-110)
