The Los Angeles Angels look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Angels have scored five runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Angels have won five of their last seven games when scoring more than three runs. Mike Trout leads LA with 50 hits and 25 RBI while Kole Calhoun and David Freese have combined for 49 RBI. The Los Angeles Angels have won five of their last seven home games. Garrett Richards takes the hill, and he’s 4-2 with a 2.98 ERA and 37 strikeouts this season. This will be Richards’ first career game against the Padres.
The Padres are 11-24 in their last 35 interleague games as an underdog and 0-6 in Cashners last 6 starts. The Angels are 10-4 in their last 14 games as a favorite and 21-7 in Richards' last 28 starts. The Padres are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Los Angeles.
The Angels bats should be awake after doing nothing in Tuesday's shutout in 10 innings. I like the home team to bounce back here.
