The Los Angeles Angels are desperate for a win after losing seven of their last eight games. The Angels have allowed 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Los Angeles Angels have an ERA of 4.47 and have lost 12 of their last 14 games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Mike Trout eads Los Angeles with 91 hits, Yunel Escobar has 20 RBI and Kole Calhoun has 10 home runs. Tim Lincecum takes the hill, and he’s 1-1 with a 5.00 ERA and four strikeouts this season. Lincecum is 5-0 with a 0.99 ERA and 70 strikeouts in his career against the Astros.
The Astros are 13-3 in their last 16 during game 2 of a series and 0-6 in Feldmans last 6 starts. The Angels are 5-12 in their last 17 during game 2 of a series and 1-6 in their last 7 vs. American League West. The Astros are 1-4 in Feldmans last 5 starts vs. Angels.
Lincecum and plus money is interesting and tempting, however, nobody on the Angels besides Trout shows up on a nightly basis. The Astros have their swagger back and are finding ways to win again. Have to keep backing the hot hand in Houston.
