East meets West in an American League showdown on Wednesday when the New York Yankees visit the Los Angeles Angels. The current line on top sportsbooks has New York favored at -147, Los Angeles at +125 and the over/under run total on 7.5.

Entering this game, New York is 38-24 overall and 16-15 on the road. The Yankees are 7-3 in their last 10 games played. Los Angeles entering this game is 34-34 overall and 19-13 at home. The Angels are 6-4 in their last 10 games played.

Eric Young Jr. has been filling in well for the injured Mike Trout. Young has batted .314 with 3 home runs and 9 RBIs in his 15 games with Los Angeles. Young hit a solo home run and an RBI walk off single during the 11th inning on Tuesday to lead the Angels to a 3-2 win.

The loss snapped New York’s winning streak at six. Aaron Judge was hitless in four at bats for the Yankees, while third baseman Chase Headley led New York with three hits, with one being a home run. Didi Gregorius recorded a double to extend his hitting streak to 15 straight games.

New York will send Michael Pineda to the mound Wednesday. The Yankees right-hander is 7-3 with an ERA of 3.39. Los Angeles will counter with Matt Shoemaker. The Angels right-hander is 6-3 with an ERA of 4.22.

Pineda did not pitch well against Toronto two starts ago, but bounced back in his most recent start allowing just an unearned run across 7 innings of work earning a 9-1 win over the Boston Red Sox last Thursday. Pineda has won four of his past five starts.

Last Friday, Shoemaker won his second consecutive start allowing 4 runs in 7 innings to beat Houston 9-4. After he struggled during his first seven starts, Shoemaker is 5-1 with an ERA of 3.19 in his past six starts.

Shoemaker leads Los Angeles in strikeouts with 67 and is 0-2 with an ERA of 4.05 in two starts during his career against New York.

New York has lost 12 straight games this season when scoring 2 or fewer runs.

New York is 6-1 in its past 7 games played.

Los Angeles is 1-5 in its past 6 games after a loss.

With this free pick, we like New York to win.
