Offense

The Angels have struggled a bit hitting the ball throughout the season. Los Angeles has a batting average of .232, which is 25th in the league. The Angels have earned a .302 OBP, which is 24th in the MLB. Los Angeles has posted an OPS of .691, which is 20th in the league. The Angels have hit .232 against righties on the season.

Baltimore has put up an on base percentage of .298, which is 27th in the league. The Orioles have earned a .679 OPS, which is 27th in the MLB. Baltimore has a BA of .230 against left handers.

These two teams have been struggling hitting the ball throughout this season and will look to step up in this one. The Orioles have been strong at the plate during this winning streak and will look to remain hot. Los Angeles will look to step up after getting shut out in Saturday’s tilt. If either team can hit well early, it could be enough for the win.

Pitching Preview

Jose Suarez will likely get the start on the mound for Los Angeles in this one. Suarez has appeared in 9 games this season, going 1-2 in those matchups. He has posted a 4.30 ERA and a WHIP of 1.540 in those outings. Suarez pitched four and two thirds innings in his last start against the Houston Astros. He gave up four hits and two runs in the no decision.

I expect Austin Voth to get the nod at pitcher for the Orioles on Sunday afternoon. Voth has earned a record of 0-1 throughout his 26 appearances. He has put up an ERA of 7.20 and a 1.800 WHIP on the season. Voth’s last start was against the Texas Rangers. He gave up four hits and three runs through four and a third innings in the no decision.

These two pitchers have been solid throughout this season and will look for a big win in this one. Voth has struggled a bit, but has been better since coming over from the Nationals. The Orioles have a slight edge in the bullpen. Baltimore’s relievers have a 3.21 ERA, which is 5th in the league. The Angels bullpen has a combined ERA of 4.07, which is 18th in the MLB.

Pick Overview

These two teams have been solid throughout this season and will look for a big win in this one. The Angels have struggled against Baltimore on the season, but will look to step up early in this one. Los Angeles has the better offense and starting pitcher in this one. If the Angels can grab the early lead, it could be enough for the win.

Bovada has both teams listed as a -110 against the money line in this one. This gives even odds to both teams to earn the win. I agree with this line as Baltimore has been hot as of late, but Los Angeles has the better starter on the mound. The Angels will look to get their bats going early after getting shut out on Saturday. At even odds, I like the value on Los Angeles.
