The Los Angeles Angels and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Wednesday in MLB action at Dodger Stadium.

The Los Angeles Angels look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Angels have scored 20 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 11 games. The Los Angeles Angels have won 15 of their last 16 games when scoring four or more runs. David Fletcher leads the Angels with 101 hits and 34 RBI while Mike Trout and Tommy La Stella have combined for 184 hits and 124 RBI. Jaime Barria gets the ball, and he is 3-3 with a 7.36 ERA and 34 strikeouts this season. This will be Barria’s first career game against the Dodgers.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Dodgers have scored 23 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 10 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won six of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 116 hits and 77 RBI while Justin Turner and Alex Verdugo have combined for 188 hits and 84 RBI. Ross Stripling gets the ball, and he is 4-3 with a 3.64 ERA and 74 strikeouts this season. Stripling is 1-1 with a 5.11 ERA and 14 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.

The Angels are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series, 5-1 in their last 6 Wednesday games and 2-6 in their last 8 interleague road games. The Dodgers are 40-12 in their last 52 home games, 10-4 in their last 14 during game 2 of a series and 6-2 in Striplings last 8 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 6-2-1 in Striplings last 9 starts overall. The under is 5-2 in Barrias last 7 starts overall.

Barria has pitched in just four games since June and has allowed 13 hits and 12 runs in his last 8.2 innings. On the road this season through 15.1 innings, Barria has a 13.50 ERA and .403 allowed batting average. Stripling has allowed 22 hits and 11 earned runs in his last 19 innings, easily his worst month yet this season. I'm not exactly thrilled with this pitching matchup given the recent struggles. With how well both teams have played these last few weeks and with a packed house that seems to be split, I'm leaning toward a high offensive game. Give me the over.
