The Los Angeles Angels look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Angels have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Los Angeles Angels have won 10 of their last 11 games when scoring four or more runs. David Fletcher leads the Angels with 100 hits and 34 RBI while Mike Trout and Tommy La Stella have combined for 183 hits and 123 RBI. Felix Pena gets the ball, and he is 7-3 with a 4.92 ERA and 91 strikeouts this season. Pena is 1-0 with a 2.81 ERA and 22 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look to stay hot after winning seven of their last nine games. The Dodgers have scored 21 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last nine games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won six of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 166 hits and 77 RBI while Justin Turner and Alex Verdugo have combined for 188 hits and 84 RBI. Kenta Maeda gets the ball, and he is 7-6 with a 3.71 ERA and 106 strikeouts this season. Maeda is 2-2 with a 4.22 ERA and 25 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Angels are 4-0 in their last 4 games following an off day, 5-1 in their last 6 games following a win and 1-4 in Pena's last 5 road starts. The Dodgers are 40-12 in their last 52 home games, 45-21 in their last 66 games following an off day and 6-2 in Maeda's last 8 home starts. The Angels are 3-8 in the last 11 meetings in Los Angeles and the under is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Los Angeles. The under is 18-5-4 in Maeda's last 27 home starts. The under is 4-1 in Pena's last 5 starts overall.
Pena has really struggled these last couple of months, allowing 38 hits and 28 earned runs in his last 36 innings. Maeda has allowed eight hits and six runs in his last 16.1 innings, and he has a 2.22 ERA and .162 allowed batting average through 52.2 innings at home. The Los Angeles Dodgers have also been ridiculously good at home this season, while I'm not sure how good the Angels actually are considering they've spent most of this second half run beating up on the Seattle Mariners. Backing the Dodgers at home has made us a mountain of cash this season. There's no reason yet to shy away from that trend.
