|Date & Time||Tuesday April 23, 2019, 10:07 PM (EDT)|
The Line: New York Yankees -112 / Los Angeles Angels +104 -- Over/Under: 8.5
The New York Yankees and Los Angeles Angels meet Tuesday in MLB action at Angel Stadium.
The New York Yankees look to stay hot after winning six of their last seven games. The Yankees have scored 20 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 11 games. The New York Yankees have won their last seven games when scoring more than two runs. DJ LeMahieu leads the Yankees with 22 hits and 10 RBI while Clint Frazier and Aaron Judge have combined for 42 hits and 28 RBI. Domingo German gets the ball, and he is 3-1 with a 2.37 ERA and 23 strikeouts this season. This will be German’s second career game against the Angels.
The Los Angeles Angels could use a win after losing eight of their last 10 games. The Angels have allowed 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in their last 10 games. The Los Angeles Angels are 3-12 this season when allowing four or more runs. Offensively, Andrelton Simmons leads the Angels with 24 hits and 11 RBI while David Fletcher and Mike Trout have combined for 39 hits and 28 RBI. Chris Stratton gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 7.00 ERA and 11 strikeouts this season. This will be Stratton’s first career game against the Yankees.
The Yankees are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series, 19-7 in their last 26 Tuesday games and 1-4 in their last 5 vs. American League West. The Angels are 13-5 in their last 18 home games, 0-4 in their last 4 vs. American League East and 1-6 in their last 7 overall. The Yankees are 7-3 in the last 10 meetings in Los Angeles and 5-1 in the last 6 meetings. The under is 16-7-1 in Angels last 24 overall. The over is 4-1 in German's last 5 road starts.
The Los Angeles Angels just can't catch a break and I'm sure they don't feel any better after losing an extra inning game on Monday despite making multiple comebacks to stay in the game. And while Pena has been pretty solid in his four starts this season, it's hard to make a case for the Angels based on how things have played out and the fact they continue to come up short time and time again. German has been rock solid this season through 19 innings, which includes five earned runs and an allowed batting average of .134. These are two teams heading in different directions. I have to side with the Yankees and the cheap price.
