|Date & Time||Tuesday May 28, 2019, 10:07 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Los Angeles Angels / Oakland Athletics -- Over/Under:
The Los Angeles Angels and Oakland Athletics meet Tuesday in MLB action at Oakland Coliseum.
The Los Angeles Angels could use a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Angels have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Los Angeles Angels have split their last six 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 102 hits and 49 RBI. Nick Tropeano gets the ball, and he was 5-6 with a 4.74 ERA and 64 strikeouts last season. Tropeano is 3-0 with a 0.51 ERA and 22 strikeouts in his career against the Athletics.
The Oakland Athletics look to keep the ball rolling while building on their 10-game winning streak. The Athletics have scored 21 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 11 of their last 12 games. The Oakland Athletics have won 16 of their last 20 games when scoring four or more runs. Marcus Semien leads the Athletics with 55 hits and 22 RBI while Matt Chapman and Stephen Piscotty have combined for 107 hits and 54 RBI. Frankie Montas gets the ball, and he is 6-2 with a 2.40 ERA and 61 strikeouts this season. Montas is 1-0 with a 1.59 ERA and nine strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Angels are 9-19 in their last 28 road games, 3-9 in their last 12 vs. American League West and 4-1 in Tropeano's last 5 Tuesday starts. The Athletics are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series, 49-21 in their last 70 home games and 6-2 in Montas' last 8 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 4-1 in Montas' last 5 home starts. The over is 6-2-1 in Tropeano's last 9 starts overall.
The Oakland Athletics continue to crush the baseball during this 10-game winning streak and are a team I'm not looking to step in front of right now. It makes things even better with Montas on the mound, a pitcher who has allowed two or less runs in each of his last four starts and is coming off a six-inning shutout over the Cleveland Indians on the road. Tropeano has been dealing with shoulder issues over the last year or so and will pitch for the first time this season. Give me the Oakland Athletics to keep this streak going.
