The Los Angeles Angels are still in the mix for a Wild Card which means every loss is crucial.

LAA starter Parker Bridwell allowing a lone run on three hits and a walk over 7.1 frames to pick up the win. Los Angeles totaled eleven hits and four walks with CJ Cron cracking a two run homer while Mike Trout knocked in a pair followed by Kaleb Cowart with an RBI and run. The Los Angeles Angels have tabbed reliever Yusmeiro Petit as Saturday’s starter at the Toronto Blue Jays. The journeyman is in his first season with the Angels and has totaled 36 relief appearances where he has an 0-2 record with a 2.70 ERA in 56.3 innings.

The Toronto Blue Jays know the time is now to make a push towards .500 and get back in the American League East race. The Blue Jays appeared to be ready for a hot streak but their pitching and hitting stalled in Friday’s loss to the Los Angeles Angels that ended a four game winning streak. Jays starter JA Happ gave up three runs on five hits and four free passes through six innings before Chris Smith was charged with three 9th inning runs. The Blue Jays managed six hits and a walk with Justin Smoak providing the offense on his 29th long ball. Left hander Francisco Liriano toes the rubber for the Toronto Blue Jays for game two of their series with the Los Angeles Angels. Liriano comes off of a 4-2 victory over the Oakland Athletics where he gave up two runs on two hits and two BB in five frames.
The under is 9-3-1 in Los Angeles last 13 road games and the under is 10-4-2 in Los Angeles last 16 overall while Los Angeles are 7-3 in their last 10 games on astroturf. The under is 18-6-2 in Toronto last 26 Saturday games and Toronto are 8-1 in Liriano’s last 9 starts on astroturf while Toronto are 7-1 in Liriano’s last 8 home starts. Los Angeles are 11-4 in the last 15 meetings.
Petit is on a 50 pitch limit so this is a huge question mark I don’t need…
