The Los Angeles Angels could use a win in order to snap a four-game losing streak. The Angels have allowed 24 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six straight games. The Los Angeles Angels have an ERA of 4.47 and have lost 10 of their last 12 games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Yunel Escobar leads Los Angeles with 70 hits, Mike Trout has 43 RBI and Albert Pujols has 12 home runs. Hector Santiago takes the hill, and he’s 3-3 with a 5.07 ERA and 56 strikeouts this season. Santiago is 2-1 with a 4.89 ERA and 36 strikeouts in his career against the Indians.
The Indians are 13-3 in their last 16 Friday games and 7-15 in Klubers last 22 road starts. The Angels are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 1 of a series and 14-4 in Santiagos last 18 starts. The Indians are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in Los Angeles and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings overall.
The Angels are back in one of their slumps again, while the Indians have lost just two games this month and are gaining more and more confidence. Add the fact Kluber is on the hill, and I like Cleveland and the cheap price.
