The New York Yankees look to stay hot after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Yankees have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. The Yankees have won six of their last seven games when scoring more than three runs. Chase Headley leads New York with 50 hits and 24 RBI while Alex Rodriguez and Brett Gardner have combined for 48 RBI. The New York Yankees have split their last eight home games. Nathan Eovaldi takes the hill, and he’s 4-1 with a 4.40 ERA and 42 strikeouts this season. Eovaldi is 0-1 with a 6.75 ERA and eight strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Angels are 4-0 in their last 4 during game 1 of a series and 5-0 in Weavers last 5 starts. The Yankees are 3-9 in their last 12 games following an off day and 6-2 in Eovaldis last 8 starts. The Angels are 8-22 in the last 30 meetings in New York.
Weaver has won his last five starts and I don't have a ton of confidence in Eovaldi. I like the Angels and the plus money in this spot.
