The Line: New York Yankees -118 / Los Angeles Angels +109 -- Over/Under: 8
The New York Yankees and Los Angles Angels meet Thursday in MLB action at Angel Stadium.
The New York Yankees look to stay hot while building on their six-game winning streak. The Yankees have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last nine games. The New York Yankees have won their last nine 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. Masahiro Tanaka gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 2.76 ERA and 28 strikeouts this season. Tanaka is 3-0 with a 1.59 ERA and 48 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Los Angles Angels could use a win after losing 10 of their last 12 games. The Angels have allowed 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in each of their last 12 games. The Los Angles Angels are 3-14 this season when allowing four or more runs. Offensively, Andrelton Simmons leads the Angels with 27 hits and 13 RBI while David Fletcher and Brian Goodwin have combined for 45 hits and 15 RBI. Trevor Cahill gets the ball, and he is 1-2 with a 5.47 ERA and 23 strikeouts this season. Cahill is 1-4 with a 10.09 ERA and 19 strikeouts in his career against the Yankees.
The Yankees are 5-0 in their last 5 games on grass, 6-2 in Tanakas last 8 starts vs. American League West and 1-4 in Tanakas last 5 starts during game 4 of a series. The Angels are 1-5 in their last 6 home games, 0-6 in their last 6 vs. American League East and 1-4 in Cahills last 5 starts. The Yankees are 5-0 in the last 5 meetings in Los Angeles and 6-0 in Tanakas last 6 starts vs. Angels. The under is 17-8-1 in Angels last 26 overall. The under is 7-3 in Yankees last 10 overall.
Tanaka looks really sharp through 29.1 innings, and while the season is still very fresh, his ERA is currently the best it's ever been in his career. Cahill has allowed 11 hits and nine runs in his last 8.1 innings, basically just another Angels pitcher who has trouble keeping his team in games. The Los Angles Angels just can't catch a break and nothing seems to change when they take the field. The New York Yankees are red hot and putting up crooked numbers on a consistent basis. It's not easy to complete a four-game sweep, but we're once again getting the much better / hotter team at a cheap price. Once again give me the Yanks.
