Angels at Yankees 5/25/18 - MLB Picks & Predictions

Yankee Stadium will play host to a Friday night clash between the Los Angeles Angels and New York Yankees. On Thursday, Mike Trout and Albert Pujols hit solo home runs to power the Angels to an 8-1 series clinching victory at Toronto. Los Angeles is six games above .500 overall and trails Houston by four games for the AL West Division lead.

Twenty-six year old southpaw Andrew Heaney (2-3 3.35 ERA) will take the mound for the Angels in this matchup. Over his last five starts, Heaney has allowed just five earned runs across his last 31 innings of work. The New York Yankees scored 24 runs during their three-game series in Texas and came away with just one victory. On Wednesday, the Yankees went deep four times during a 12-10 loss against the Rangers. New York has won 31 of their first 46 games overall and trails Boston by 1.5 games for the AL East Division lead.

Twenty-four year old righty Luis Severino (7-1 2.35 ERA) has become a dominant force in the New York rotation. The Yankees have won Severino’s last seven starts and he owns a miniscule 0.97 WHIP on the year.

New York 1B Greg Bird (ankle) could return by as early as Saturday or Sunday according to Yankees manager Aaron Boone. Through 50 games, Los Angeles ranks 14th in batting average and 8th in runs scored. For the season, New York ranks 5th in batting average and 1st in runs scored. Take New York to win a low scoring affair. Final Score Prediction, New York Yankees win 5-1.
