The Los Angeles Angels can sweep the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday with another win after toppling Milwaukee 6-5 Saturday night.
LA trailed 2-0 early on Jonathan Lucroy's RBI-double before Mike Trout's, Kole Calhoun's and Luis Jimenez's RBI-singles during the top of the third gave the Angels the lead. The Brewers squared things at three during the home-half via Aramis Ramirez's double.

Chris Iannetta, however, went deep during the fourth to propel Los Angeles back ahead. Lucroy singled in two runs during the seventh. Hank Conger's two-run HR afterward, however, proved to be the game-winner for the Angels.
C.J. Wilson (13-6, 3.36 ERA) has won nine of his last 10 decisions and five in a row, but LA is just 1-4 since July 30 when Wilson leaves with a no-decision. Wilson's last start at the Tampa Bay Rays resulted in the lone win 6-5. Wilson yielded three runs during five innings. Wilson has won six consecutive road decisions this year, allowing 13 runs, 12 earned, during 38 frames.
The Texas Rangers beat the Angels 14-11 July 30, with Wilson taking a 11-hit six-run four-inning no-decision. Wilson started the season 2-3 in away appearances,losing at the Boston Red Sox, Chicago White Sox and Houston Astros, conceding 14 runs, eight earned, during 18 frames. Milwaukee is 5-of-21 with a Yuniesky Betancourt RBI against Wilson.
The Brewers come back with Kyle Lohse (9-8, 3.39 ERA), who is 6-3 at Miller Park this year. Lohse is 6-1 in his last seven decisions, bleeding for 11 runs during 40.2 innings in wins and surrendering two runs, one earned, during seven frames in a 2-1 loss to the Cincinnati Reds.
The St. Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers also handed Lohse 6-1 and 4-1 defeats by driving in eight runs during 11.1 innings. Versus Lohse, Los Angeles is 10-of-32 with two Iannetta RBIs. I like Milwaukee to finally prosper at Miller.
