Arizona Diamondbacks vs LA Angels Prediction

I’m on the Diamondbacks here. It would definitely help to know who the Angels were sending to the mound here, but at this point, I’m not sure if it matters as the Angels just can’t get out of their own way. Whether it’s the offense not showing up, the pitching not holding it down, or a combination of both, the Angels just look like a lost cause. I think there’s at least some upside with the Diamondbacks, who still have a young core of talent, and are still fighting and showing signs of life. I’ll side with Arizona at home here.
