The Los Angeles Angels look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Angels have scored nine runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last eight games. The Angels have lost six of their last seven games when scoring three or less runs. Mike Trout leads Los Angeles with 80 hits and 41 RBI while Albert Pujols and Kole Calhoun have combined for 79 RBI. The Los Angeles Angels have won five of their last eight home games. Matt Shoemaker takes the hill, and he’s 4-5 with a 5.20 ERA and 66 strikeouts this season. Shoemaker is 3-1 with a 2.67 ERA and 33 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Mariners are 4-1 in their last 5 games following an off day and 4-1 in Walkers last 5 starts. The Angels are 8-2 in their last 10 during game 1 of a series and 24-11 in Shoemakers last 35 starts. The Mariners are 27-56 in the last 83 meetings in Los Angeles and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings overall.
The Angels have been solid at home as of late and have done fairly well when Shoemaker has been on the hill. I like the home team and the small chalk here.
