New York Yankees Recap

The New York Yankees come into this one looking to build a 2-1 win over the Angels on Wednesday, forcing a series-deciding rubber match on Thursday to try to keep their unbeaten streak alive after knocking off the Padres in their series this past weekend. The Yankees will take on the Giants and Twins after this series.

Yankees Still Rolling At The Dish

Juan Soto leads the Yankees with 68 hits along with 11 doubles and 15 home runs with 46 RBIs to go along with a .312 batting average and .412 OBP. Aaron Judge has a team-high 17 home runs of his own along with a team-leading 18 doubles while also posting 63 strikeouts so far this season. Anthony Volpe’s added 65 hits with 6 home runs, 23 RBIs and a team-high 11 stolen bases as well this season. Giancarlo Stanton also has 13 home runs, 29 RBIs and a team-high 63 strikeouts this season.

  • The Yankees have covered the run line in each of their last eight games against AL West opponents following a road win.
  • The Yankees have led after 5 innings in each of their last eight road night games.

The Los Angeles Angels will try to rebound and win Thursday’s matchup after falling short in Wednesday’s game two. The Angels could use the series win to get back on track after being swept by the Cleveland Guardians over this past weekend. The Angels will play against the Mariners following this series.

Angels Back To Having Issues At The Plate In Loss

Taylor Ward leads the Angels with 56 hits along with 11 home runs and a team-high 34 RBIs. Mike Trout also has 10 home runs along with a pair of triples and 6 stolen bases, but remains out indefinitely with injury while Zach Neto has 50 strikeouts and 6 stolen bases.

  • The Yankees have trailed after 5 innings in each of their last six Thursday games against American League opponents that held a losing record.

LA Angels vs NY Yankees Prediction

I’m on the Yankees here. The Yankees were a bit sluggish in Wednesday’s win but I think they have a great shot at bouncing back in Thursday’s matchup as Patrick Sandoval’s been really bad at home this season. The Angels have been able to drum up some offense here and there, but I just can’t get over how different Rodon’s results have been for the Yankees this year. I think New York snags the series here so give me New York in this one.
