The Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Angels meet Tuesday in MLB action at Angel Stadium.
The Arizona Diamondbacks need a win after losing 12 of their last 15 games. The Diamondbacks have scored 10 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Diamondbacks have won four of their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Ketel Marte leads the Diamondbacks with 47 hits and 14 RBI while Christian Walker and David Peralta have combined for 93 hits and 58 RBI. Madison Bumgarner gets the ball, and he is 0-4 with a 7.52 ERA and 17 strikeouts this season. This will be Bumgarner’s first career game against the Angels.
The Los Angeles Angels need a win after splitting their last six games. The Angels have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 10 games. The Angels have won eight of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Mike Trout leads the Angels with 48 hits and 39 RBI while David Fletcher and Anthony Rendon have combined for 89 hits and 38 RBI. Julio Teheran gets the ball, and he is 0-3 with a 8.23 ERA and 17 strikeouts this season. Teheran is 4-1 with a 2.47 ERA and 53 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Diamondbacks are 18-8 in their last 26 games following an off day, 8-24 in their last 32 road games and 6-20 in their last 26 overall. The Angels are 4-0 in their last 4 home games, 2-5 in their last 7 during game 1 of a series and 8-3 in their last 11 overall. The under is 10-2 in Diamondbacks last 12 road games. The under is 3-0-1 in Angels last 4 overall. The under is 7-3-1 in the last 11 meetings.
Madison Bumgarner has allowed four runs and 10 hits in his last nine innings while Julio Teheran has allowed seven runs and nine hits in his last 9.2 innings. While these are two veteran pitchers that are better than what they've shown this season, the bottom line here is that both of these pitchers have been hot garbage this season. I can't get behind either of these pitchers with confidence. I'll take the over given that both of these pitchers are batting practice for opposing lineups.
