LA Angels vs NY Yankees Prediction

I’m on the Yankees here. I am a big fan of Luis Gil and what he’s brought to the table this season and Gil’s been nothing short of lights out in the month of May with a 0.59 ERA. Tyler Anderson’s been pitching well also, but I’ve watched enough of Tyler Anderson to know what he is capable of and what kind of numbers we should expect to see from him over the course of a season. I think these numbers are a tad unsustainable for Anderson, and I think the Yankees tee off on him here. Give me the Yankees.
