After the LA Angels have won three straight and back-to-back against the Yankees, they have a chance to make a big statement and sweep the Yanks tonight in the series finale.
The Angels are now just one game under .500, so a win here to start off September would put them back up to the mark for the seemingly one millionth time. They’re 8.5 games out of the AL Wild Card race. It would take a miracle for this team to make the playoffs, but crazier things have happened.
Remember when the Red Sox blew their nine game Wild Card lead in September of 2011? Again, crazier things have happened than the Angels miraculously forcing the Red Sox to blow this 8.5 game Wild Card lead.

Unfortunately, it’s a real possibility that Mike Trout won’t be back at all this season. He’s been feeling sore after workouts, and despite running the bases last week, he may not ever be ready to come back in this year.
Angels vs Yankees Prediction Today
I love that the Angels have shown so much fight and played so well these last few games. That being said, I think the Angels won’t end up coming out on top considering they’re going with a bullpen game against Gerrit Cole. I just don’t think we can win that way against the best pitcher in the American League.
We have an explosive lineup, even without Trout and Anthony Rendon. I just think the pitching matchup will be too tough.
