Today, two teams who went from heading in opposite directions over the season will play on when the New York Yankees face the Los Angeles Angels on the road for the second game in their three-game series. Yesterday, the Angels picked up a 4-3 win after a very intense game to kick things off. New York entered this series on a two-game losing streak, whereas the Angels have won three in a row. Still, the bottom line is, New York will be in the postseason, and the Angels will not.
The Yankees dominated the first half of the season, but since the All-Star break, they have a poor 14-23 record. The Yankees put together a five-game winning streak from August 21-26 but entered this series with consecutive losses, 3-2 and 4-1, as huge favorites over the Oakland A’s. MVP candidate Aaron Judge leads the Yankees with 50 home runs and 110 RBI.
Despite the recent struggles, the Yankees still lead the AL East by 7 games ahead of the second-place Rays. On the road, New York is 33-31, and today they will send Jameson Taillon (12-4, 3.89 ERA) to the mound. Taillon is 6-2 with a 4.07 ERA on the road. New York lost three of his five starts in August and he posted a 4.55 ERA for the month.
It’s hard to argue that any team’s fanbase should be more frustrated than the Angels. They have two of the best players in the game in Shohei Ohtani and Mike Trout, who are all-time great talents, yet not enough to avoid another losing season. Today, Los Angeles will send Mike Mayers to the mound first. Mayers has made just one start in 19 appearances and is 1-0 with a 4.46 ERA in 34.1 innings pitched. The Angels have lost the last seven games that Mayers has appeared in.
