Cortes has allowed two earned runs or fewer in three of his last four starts, but did allow four earned runs in each of his last two road starts.

New York Yankees vs LA Angels Prediction 

New York comes into this series as one of the best teams in the MLB and they are 19-10 on the road, while LA is just 6-19 at home this year. The Angels have done a decent job offensively, but their pitching staff is one of the worst in baseball. LA is going with Griffin Canning, who has been really good in his last four starts. The Yankees are going with Cortes, who has solid numbers, but has struggled on the road recently. I think the Angels have a chance in this game if Canning can continue this run, so my New York Yankees vs LA Angels prediction is for the Angels to get the win.
