Moose has good career numbers against the Halos (15-8, 3.43 in 30 starts).  Moose is 4-1, 2.54 in his last five road starts against them.

The Yanks are 4-10 on the road against the Angels since 2004, including the post-season.  Surprisingly, Moose earned the win in three of those four victories.

On the other side, Escobar is 7-7, 4.98 in 35 games (16 starts) against the Yanks, but most of his struggles were during his days in Toronto.

I don't make a lot of game predictions, but I'm going to call it and say that Moose will pitch a good ballgame tonight.  No idea if they will win or not, but he will keep his team in the game and throw a quality start.  Just a gut feeling.
