The Line: Los Angeles Angels -152 / Baltimore Orioles +130 -- Over/Under: 10.5
The Los Angeles Angels and Baltimore Orioles meet Saturday in MLB action at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
The Los Angeles Angels look for another win after winning nine of their last 13 games. The Angels have scored 24 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 12 games. The Los Angeles Angels have won nine of their last 11 games when scoring four or more runs. Andrelton Simmons leads the Angels with 48 hits and 21 RBI while David Fletcher and Brian Goodwin have combined for 71 hits and 26 RBI. Matt Harvey gets the ball, and he is 1-3 with a 6.94 ERA and 22 strikeouts this season. This will be Harvey’s first career game against the Orioles.
The Baltimore Orioles could use a win after losing nine of their last 12 games. The Orioles have allowed 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Baltimore Orioles have lost 13 of their last 15 games when allowing more than one run. Offensively, Trey Mancini leads the Orioles with 45 hits and 16 RBI while Jonathan Villar and Dwight Smith Jr. have combined for 78 hits and 39 RBI. Dylan Bundy gets the ball, and he is 1-4 with a 5.30 ERA and 38 strikeouts this season. Bundy is 1-1 with a 7.82 ERA and 14 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Angels are 4-0 in their last 4 vs. American League East, 6-16 in their last 22 road games and 2-7 in their last 9 Saturday games. The Orioles are 21-49 in their last 70 during game 2 of a series, 1-5 in Bundys last 6 home starts and 7-20 in Bundys last 27 starts. The Angels are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Baltimore and 7-1 in the last 8 meetings. The under is 4-0 in Bundys last 4 starts overall. The over is 4-1 in Angels last 5 overall.
Harvey looks like he's back to being the Harvey who Mets fans hated and did everything they could to drive him out of town. Bundy hasn't been much better this season, allowing 21 earned runs, nine homers and 14 walks in 35.2 innings. I don't want to get behind either one of these pitchers, but one of these pitchers plays for the Baltimore Orioles, and they're an awful, awful baseball team. Harvey or not, the Los Angeles Angels lineup should be able to carry this one out against an O's squad that finds ways to lose.
