The Los Angeles Angels could use a win after losing five of their last six games. The Angels have allowed 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Los Angeles Angels have an ERA of 4.46 and have lost 10 of their last 13 games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Mike Trout leads Los Angeles with 157 hits, Yunel Escobar has 35 RBI and Albert Pujols has 29 home runs. Alex Meyer takes the hill, and he’s 0-2 with a 7.71 ERA and 10 strikeouts this season. This will be Meyer’s first career game against the Mariners.
The Mariners are 0-4 in their last 4 Tuesday games and 4-10 in Walkers last 14 starts. The Angels are 1-4 in their last 5 vs. American League West and 8-3 in their last 11 games vs. a right-handed starter. The over is 4-0 in Walkers last 4 starts vs. Angels.
The Mariners have caught fire over the last week and are quickly gaining ground on the rest of the teams in the American League wild card. Walker isn't exactly a great pitcher, but hard to argue with the way Seattle is playing right now and a red hot offense. Give me the M's and the small price.
