The Line: Los Angeles Angels / Oakland Athletics -- Over/Under:
The Los Angeles Angels and Oakland Athletics meet Monday in MLB action at Oakland Coliseum.
The Los Angeles Angels look for a win after losing seven of their last 11 games. The Angels have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Los Angeles Angels have won eight of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Andrelton Simmons leads the Angels with 56 hits and 21 RBI while David Fletcher and Mike Trout have combined for 100 hits and 48 RBI. Felix Pena gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 3.30 ERA and 40 strikeouts this season. Pena is 0-2 with a 8.79 ERA and 10 strikeouts in his career against the Athletics.
The Oakland Athletics look to stay hot while building on their nine-game winning streak. The Athletics have scored 19 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 11 games. The Oakland Athletics have won 12 of their last 14 games when scoring four or more runs. Marcus Semien leads the Athletics with 55 hits and 22 RBI while Stephen Piscotty and Matt Chapman have combined for 101 hits and 49 RBI. Chris Bassitt gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 2.48 ERA and 44 strikeouts this season. Bassitt is 0-2 with a 6.75 ERA and 12 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Angels are 9-19 in their last 28 road games, 2-9 in their last 11 vs. American League West and 2-5 in their last 7 overall. The Athletics are 6-1 in their last 7 during game 1 of a series, 48-21 in their last 69 home games and 7-3 in Bassitt's last 10 starts. The Angels are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in Oakland and the under is 5-0-1 in the last 6 meetings. The under is 5-2 in Bassitt's last 7 starts overall. The under is 8-3-3 in Angels last 14 overall.
The Los Angeles Angels are running out of pitchers and their bullpen has pitched a ton to the point they probably burned their starter in Pena in Sunday's victory over the Texas Rangers. The Angels are in a tough spot pitching wise. Bassitt has been money through 36.1 innings, allowing just 10 earned runs and a .183 batting average. The Los Angeles Angels have also been horrible on the road this season, while the A's are playing their best stretch of ball this season and their offense doesn't seem to be cooling down. The Angels have had serious trouble scoring easy runs. Give me Oakland for its 10th straight victory.
