The Line: New York Yankees -105 / Los Angeles Angels -116 -- Over/Under: 8.5
The New York Yankees and Los Angeles Angels meet Wednesday in MLB action at Angel Stadium.
The New York Yankees look to stay hot after winning eight of their last 10 games. The Yankees have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 12 games. The New York Yankees have won eight straight games when scoring more than two runs. Gleyber Torres leads the Yankees with 22 hits and 10 RBI while Clint Frazier and DJ LeMahieu have combined for 44 hits and 27 RBI. CC Sabathia gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA and eight strikeouts this season. Sabathia is 10-9 with a 3.77 ERA and 107 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Los Angeles Angels could use a win after losing nine of their last 11 games. The Angels have allowed 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in each of their last 11 games. The Los Angeles Angels are 3-13 this season when allowing four or more runs. Offensively, Andrelton Simmons leads the Angels with 25 hits and 11 RBI while David Fletcher and Brian Goodwin have combined for 44 hits and 15 RBI. Felix Pena gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 4.15 ERA and 14 strikeouts this season. This will be Pena’s second career game against the Yankees.
The Yankees are 3-14 in their last 17 during game 3 of a series, 3-8 in their last 11 Wednesday games and 4-0 in their last 4 overall. The Angels are 0-5 in their last 5 vs. American League East, 1-4 in their last 5 home games and 4-1 in Penas last 5 home starts. The Yankees are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Los Angeles and 20-8 in the last 28 meetings. The under is 4-0 in Penas last 4 starts overall. The under is 7-2 in Yankees last 9 overall.
Pena has been solid at home this season and has been more consistent in his last three starts overall. Sabathia is usually either really good or really bad, so it's hard to get a feel for which version is going to show up. The bottom line is the Yankees are starting to heat up and have an offense capable of making up for a pitchers mistakes. The Los Angeles Angels are heading fast in the wrong direction and haven't shown they can pick up a pitcher who has a bad inning or two. We're getting the cheaper price with the better team. I'll take the Yankees.
