Yankees vs Angels Free Pick June 14, 2017
The Yankees are knocking the cover off the ball, leading the major leagues in runs scored. New York has won six straight, including Game 1 of this series in LA. The total for Wednesday’s Game 3 looks a little low all things considered.
Michael Pineda will toe the slab for the Yankees, and he’s having a solid season. Pineda (7-3, 3.39 ERA) allowed one run on three hits, striking out eight in seven innings in a 9-1 home win over Boston his last time out. He hasn’t had as much success on the road, going 1-2 with a 5.96 ERA in five starts.
The Halos hand the ball to Matt Shoemaker, who has a 4-1 home record, but along with an ERA of 4.76. The Yankees have hit him pretty good in the past, batting .317 over a combined 41 at bats. He’s been taken deep four times in his last three starts (17 IP).
Aaron Judge leads the American League in batting average and home runs, and he’s second with 49 RBIs. He’s hit four home runs and has eight RBIs in his last three games.
