Though 14.1 innings, Eshelman hasn't been good to say the last, allowing 17 hits and 11 earned runs while walking five. The Los Angeles Angels have starting pitching issues of their own in this matchup, however, they've been one of the better teams in the second half and just got a major confidence boost by sweeping a two-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Baltimore Orioles have been able to snag an occasional win lately, but they're still a club counting the days until the offseason and have been burning money all year. Give me the Angels.
