LA Angels vs Detroit Tigers Prediction

I’m on the Angels here. The Angels have been hitting fairly well over the course of this win streak and now face Mize, who isn’t be striking out the same amount of batters he has been in years past. On the other side, I’ve been waiting for the other shoe to drop on Tyler Anderson and it simply hasn’t happened and I think that he keeps it going here. Give me the Angels.
