The Los Angeles Angels look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Angels have scored five runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. The Angels have won four straight games when scoring four or more runs. Jared Walsh leads the Angels with 55 hits and 37 RBI while David Fletcher and Shaohei Ohtani have combined for 99 hits and 54 RBI. Jose Quintana gets the ball, and he is 0-3 with a 7.92 ERA and 45 strikeouts this season. Quintana is 2-0 with a 3.20 ERA and 36 strikeouts in his career against the Athletics.
The Oakland Athletics look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Athletics have scored eight runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 10 games. The Athletics have won eight of their last 11 games when scoring four or more runs. Mark Canha leads the Athletics with 48 hits and 15 RBI while Ramon Laureano and Matt Olson have combined for 91 hits and 53 RBI. Cole Irvin gets the ball, and he is 3-6 with a 3.92 ERA and 42 strikeouts this season. This will be Irvin’s first career game against the Angels.
The Angels are 27-55 in their last 82 road games and 5-1 in their last 6 Sunday games. The Athletics are 24-10 in their last 34 during game 4 of a series and 19-8 in their last 27 games as a favorite. The under is 4-1 in Angels last 5 road games. The under is 4-1 in Athletics last 5 overall. The Angels are 5-16 in the last 21 meetings in Oakland and 1-5 in the last 6 meetings.
The Los Angeles Angels have had issues putting runs on the board since the Mike Trout injury and Jose Quintana is not a pitcher you should be running to the window to back this season, as he’s been downright awful. The Oakland Athletics have played their best ball at home this season and Cole Irvin has been respectable this season with an ERA under four. I’ll side with the A’s and the reasonable price.
