The Los angeles Angels have become almost unrecognizable compared to the team of earlier in the season. They’re just 38-46, having lost five of their last six. They’ve lost 29-of-40 since a high-water mark of the season.
LA’s still a wild-card player as of now, but who’s take that action? With Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani as about their only legit offensive threats, and Trout is 1-for-22 (13 strikeouts) in July.
Trout does remain the leader in home runs, while Ohtani has been the go-to guy for RBIs. The Japanese-born product has also been utterly outstanding on the mound, having gone four straight starts without surrendering an earned run.
Lefthander Reid Detmers (2-3, 4.66 ERA) hope to match some of his All-Star teammate’s performances, coming off of a start against the Kansas City Royals where he surrendered five earned runs in five innings.
Oriole on a Roll
The Baltimore Orioles, as opposed to their opponents, have been playing much better of late. Baltimore has won its last five games, moving within four games of .500 and with the best record in the league against the spread.
They are now one of the more reliable MLB picks, though last in the AL East.
Ryan Mountcastle has been on fire lately, and his 14 home runs are just one shy of Anthony Santander’s team high Trey Mancini boasts the team lead in batting average, while Austin Hays leads the way in RBIs.
This sort of balance is another reason why the Orioles have been so successful of late, as even though they don’t have a dominant player on the roster, contributions by multiple players ensure they will rarely have off nights.
Righty Tyler Wells (7-4, 3.09 ERA) get the start after surrendering one earned run in six innings against the Minnesota Twins his last out.
