The Mariners are 1-7 in their last 8 Sunday games, 5-1 in Paxtons last 6 road starts and 8-3 in Paxtons last 11 starts. The Angels are 1-4 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series, 6-2 in Bridwells last 8 home starts and 16-3 in Bridwells last 19 starts. The Mariners are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in Los Angeles and 2-6 in the last 8 meetings.
Paxton has allowed three or less runs in each of his last 10 starts, but he does have an ERA of 4.08 on the road compared to an ERA of 2.45 at home. The Angels have won eight of the last 10 games Bridwell has pitched, but he has an ERA of 4.33 at home compared to an ERA of 3.31 on the road. Regardless, this is a meaningless game for both teams who are packed and ready for vacation when it ends. With no true edge, the value is with the Angels at home and the plus money.
