The Los Angeles Angels and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Friday in MLB action at Dodger Stadium.
The Los Angeles Angels look to stay hot after winning six of their last seven games. The Angels have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last nine games. The Angels have won six straight games when scoring four or more runs. David Fletcher leads the Angels with 61 hits and 16 RBI while Mike Trout and Anthony Rendon have combined for 107 hits and 74 RBI. Andrew Heaney gets the ball, and he is 4-3 with a 4.02 ERA and 67 strikeouts this season. Heaney is 1-2 with a 4.91 ERA and 31 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after winning six of their last eight games. The shave scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs seven of their last eight games. The Dodgers have won five of their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Corey Seager leads the Dodgers with 65 hits and 41 RBI while Mookie Betts and Cody Bellinger have combined for 113 hits and 68 RBI. Clayton Kershaw gets the ball, and he is 6-2 with a 2.15 ERA and 59 strikeouts this season. Kershaw is 7-2 with a 2.45 ERA and 94 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Angels are 5-2 in their last 7 interleague games, 18-37 in their last 55 road games and 20-44 in their last 64 games as an underdog. The Dodgers are 5-1 in their last 6 Friday games, 4-1 in their last 5 interleague home games and 48-19 in their last 67 games as a favorite. The under is 4-1-2 in Angels last 7 overall. The over is 3-0-2 in Dodgers last 5 home games. The under is 12-5 in the last 17 meetings.
Andrew Heaney has allowed nine earned runs and 22 hits in his last 25.2 innings while Clayton Kershaw has allowed seven earned runs and 14 hits in his last 24.1 innings. The Los Angeles Angels are playing their best ball of the season and Heaney has been good enough this season to consider as big underdogs. However, the Dodgers don't lose often at home and Kershaw is showing more consistent flashes of being Kershaw.
I'll lean toward the Los Angeles Dodgers and the RL, but I was considering that big price with the Angels.
