The Line: Baltimore Orioles / Los Angeles Angels -- Over/Under:
The Baltimore Orioles and Los Angeles Angels meet Saturday in MLB action at Angel Stadium.
The Baltimore Orioles look for a win after winning six of their last nine games. The Orioles have scored 21 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last nine games. The Baltimore Orioles have won six of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Trey Mancini leads the Orioles with 108 hits and 51 RBI while Jonathan Villar and Hanser Alberto have combined for 199 hatstand 73 RBI. Aaron Brooks gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 6.00 ERA and three strikeouts this season. Brooks is 0-0 with a 1.35 ERA and four strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Los Angeles Angels look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Angels have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Los Angeles Angels have won six of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. David Fletcher leads the Angels with 105 hits and 35 RBI while Mike Trout and Kole Calhoun have combined for 189 hits and 140 RBI. The Los Angeles Angels didn’t list a starting pitcher at the time this article was published.
The Orioles are 22-59 in their last 81 during game 3 of a series, 40-108 in their last 148 road games and 14-41 in their last 55 Saturday games. The Angels are 8-3 in their last 11 Saturday games, 11-6 in their last 17 vs. American League East and 4-2 in their last 6 games on grass. The Orioles are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in Los Angeles and 4-9 in the last 13 meetings. The under is 4-1-1 in Angels last 6 Saturday games. The under is 4-1-2 in Orioles last 7 road games.
The Baltimore Orioles have put together three straight wins just once since April 3, so you shouldn't expect this little winning stretch to continue much longer. Since coming over from Oakland, Brooks has pitched nine innings for the Orioles, allowing 11 hits and six earned runs while walking three. The Los Angeles Angels starting rotation is all shaken up and the bullpen has been used a lot in this series, but they need to make the most of these games if they're going to make August and September meaningful. These are starting to become must-win games for the Los Angeles Angels. Despite being on the wrong side of the last two, I'll back them again.
