The LA Angels and Dodgers have an intercity interleague matchup at Dodger Stadium for two days. The Dodgers opened the series with a 2-0 win behind Tony Gonsolin last night. Gonsolin was in his best form with 1 hit and no runs allowed through 6.1 innings.

He’s played a utility role in the Dodgers’ pitching staff to open his career, but is finally able to spread his wings as a full-time starter this season. Gonsolin is running with this opportunity and impressing.
The Dodgers ended a three-game skid with the win last night. Noah Syndergaard did what was asked of him, but he didn’t see any run support against Gonsolin.
Syndergaard allowed 2 hits and 1 earned run across 4.2 innings of work. Andrew Wantz gave up an insurance run to the Dodgers in the bottom of the 8th. Both teams managed just 3 hits each in a pitching duel.
They’ve been good, but something is amiss this season. It looks like another season where they are overpriced to win the World Series. The trade deadline should be interesting for the Dodgers.
The good news for the Angels is that they snapped out of a 14-game losing streak. The bad news is that they’re just 2-3 since then and fell to third in the AL West at 29-34.
The Angels are scheduled to send Reid Detmers to the bump for this one. Tyler Anderson is making preparations to start for the Dodgers.

Angels vs. Dodgers Prediction:
Reid Detmers is pitching well for the Angels this season. He can’t be blamed for the Angels’ recent struggles. Detmers has been in great form as of late.
This was after Detmers had one of his worst performances of the season. He allowed 5 hits and 5 earned runs in a 7-2 loss to the Texas Rangers at Angel Stadium.
That isn’t consistent with Detmers overall, though. Detmers has had more success in Anaheim compared to the road. He has a 6.19 ERA and 1.62 WHIP through 16 innings of work on the road.
Detmers has been in good shape with a 2.70 ERA and 0.72 WHIP at home, but not as reliable as a visitor. The Dodgers are the highest-scoring team in the major leagues.
They have produced 5.17 runs per 9 innings for first in the major leagues. At Dodger Stadium, they’ve been more potent with 5.71 runs per 9 with a .328 OBP.
Look at Tyler Anderson to be the better starter in this one. Anderson was also on fire, with three straight games without allowing a run. In his last start, he was tagged for 4 earned runs in 3 frames in an 11-9 win against the White Sox.

- 4-1 overall in thier previous five games versus the AL West
- 25-6 overall in their previous 26 games versus the American League agianst a team with a losing record
Anderson was motoring right along with 18 straight innings without allowing a run in three games. He had allowed 2 or fewer runs in eight of nine starts before the White Sox got to him for 4 runs.
He’s posted an ERA of 2.40 and a 1.07 WHIP in his previous three attempts. The Dodgers have the advantage with their bullpen.
The bullpen has an ERA of 3.48 and a 1.16 WHIP as opposed to a 4.25 ERA and 1.22 WHIP for the Angels.
I’m looking at the Dodgers to continue their winning ways with a victory at Dodger Stadium. They’ve been sluggish recently, but should put another win together. I like a 5-3 or 6-4 win for the home team at Dodger Stadium.
