The Los Angeles Angels look to remain hot after winning eight of their last 10 games. The Angels have scored 18 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in nine of their last 13 games. The Los Angeles Angels offense has caught fire recently, and they’ve won seven straight games when scoring more than three runs. Mike Trout leads Los Angeles with 107 hits, Yunel Escobar has 28 RBI and Albert Pujols has 17 home runs. Tim Lincecum takes the hill, and he’s 1-3 with a 6.85 ERA and 21 strikeouts this season. This will be Lincecum’s second career game against the Rangers.
The Rangers are 38-15 in their last 53 during game 2 of a series and 6-1 in their last 7 Tuesday games. The Angels are 3-7 in their last 10 Tuesday games and 8-2 in their last 10 overall. The under is 5-2-1 in the last 8 meetings.
Don't look now but the Los Angeles Angels have some value with the way the offense is crushing right now. Also, the Rangers are falling off a cliff as the pitching staff is getting rocked recently. Add Lincecum on the mound and I like the Angels to remain hot.
