The past week has been a good one for the Los Angeles Angels but it’s not going to save their season. The hot streak ended at four games with a 4-1 loss at Houston on Sunday as their bats were silenced. Angels starter Daniel Wright dropped to 0-3 with three runs given up on seven hits including two homers through six innings. Los Angeles posted seven hits and walked twice with Rafael Ortega knocking in CJ Cron. Jered Weaver will be shooting for back to back victories when he faces the Athletics on Monday. Weaver comes off of a 5-4 win at Texas with all four runs allowed in six frames.
Oakland are 2-7 in Manaea’s last 9 road starts. The under is 12-3-1 in the Angels last 16 home games and is 22-8-1 in their last 31 on grass while going 23-9-2 in their last 34 overall. The over is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings and the under is 23-9-3 in Weaver’s last 35 starts versus Oakland. Going out on a thin limb for sure…
