The Los Angeles Angels look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Angels have allowed 21 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 12 games. The Los Angeles Angels have an ERA of 4.24 and have lost five of their last six games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Yunel Escobar leads Los Angeles with 59 hits, Mike Trout has 36 RBI and Albert Pujols has 11 home runs. Nick Tropeano takes the hill, and he’s 3-2 with a 2.86 ERA and 49 strikeouts this season. This will be Tropeano’s second career game against the Astros.
The Astros are 21-46 in their last 67 road games and 5-0 in Fisters last 5 starts. The Angels are 6-2 in their last 8 vs. American League West and 6-1 in Tropeanos last 7 starts vs. American League West. The under is 9-3-1 in the last 13 meetings in Los Angeles.
The Astros are shwoing signs of heating up on the offensive end, and the Angels have had issues keeping runs off the board. In a battle between two inconsistent clubs, I'm taking the road team and small plus money.
