Yankees vs Angels Prediction & Pick

The Yankees need to do everything in their power to leave Los Angeles without getting swept. They head home for a favorable series against the Royals this weekend and heading back to the Bronx on a high note is crucial for a team that is spiraling to start the second half.

Luckil y for New York, it's sending Carlos Rodon to the bump, giving them a significant advantage in the pitching department. Rodon is only making his third start of the season, and while he looked really solid in his first outing of the year against the Cubs, he struggled against the Rockies, surrendering four runs in 5.0 innings pitched.

The Angels present an opportunity for him to get back on track and I think he will. Rodon is a strikeout pitcher and while he only had 2 stikeouts in his first start he kicked that number up to 6 strikeouts in his second start. The Angels rank No. 21 in the MLB in strikeouts per game, so as long as Rodon has a longer leash in his third outing, we should see that total rise even more for him on Wednesday night.

The Yankees get to go up a gainst Chase Silseth, who has just eight starts in 14 appearances and has never gone more than 3.1 innings this season in any outing. He has also surrendered at least one run in five of his seven starts since the beginning of May, despite never even pitching four innings in any appearance. All of this adds up to a guy that gives up runs and an ERA that sits at 5.40. Even for the struggling Yankees bats, that's a gift.

Final Score Prediction:'Yankees: 6 | Angels: 3

Yankees vs Angels Best Bet

Oswald Peraza has led off the Yankees' batting order in both of the first two games of the series. He has gotten on base five times. With the Yankees bats expected to get to Silseth early, we're going to take Peraza to score a run.

New York will have to find ways to score runs, even if that means playing some small ball. Peraza has the ability to steal some bases, so don't be surprised if you see Aaron Booner try and manufacture some runs with the young infielder on base.
