The Angels simply never got the bats going on Monday as they took the loss in Seattle. Albert Pujols hit a home run and Mike Trout and Kole Calhoun had hits as the Angels scored one run on three hits. Starting pitcher Tyler Skaggs allowed seven hits and five runs, two earned, while striking out eight over 7.0 innings to take the loss and fall to 4-2 for the year. For Tuesday’s game the Angels start jered Weaver who seems to have found his game. For the season Weaver has allowed 47 hits and 21 earned runs while striking out 50 over 66.1 innings for a 5-3 record and a 2.85 ERA.
Seattle is 9-1 against a team with a winning record, 10-4 against the AL West, and 4-0 in Elias’ last four starts as an underdog. Los Angeles is 5-0 following a loss, 12-6 in their last 18 games, and 12-5 in Weaver’s last 17 starts as a favorite. Los Angeles is 1-6 in the last seven meetings of these two.
