The Los Angeles Angels need a win after losing five of their last eight games. The Angels have scored five runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last eight.

The Blue Jays are 6-2 in their last 8 during game 2 of a series and 10-4 in Estradas last 14 starts. The Angels are 1-7 in their last 8 during game 2 of a series and 8-2 in Heaneys last 10 starts. The Blue Jays are 5-14 in the last 19 meetings.
I've been backing the BLue Jays for much of their hot streak, but Heaney is one kid who is capable of getting the Angels back on track. Heaney has been solid in much of his starts and is worth some money at this price.
