The Houston Astros and Los Angeles Angels face off on Monday in an American League West showdown at Angel Stadium.
The Angels have to feel good about the way they have started their season winning three of their first games. On Sunday the star of the show for the Angels was Jared Walsh who hit a three home run to walk off the White sox. Walsh has hit two home runs and driven in six RBI’s. Albert Pujols and Justin Upton have also each drove in four runs. MIke Trout has only drove in two runs and they need more production out of him going forward.
The Houston Astros probably never wanted to leave Oakland after what they were able to do over the weekend. The Astors faced off with the A’s and they were dominant in every game as they cruised to four victories. In each of the games the Astros scored at least eight points. Kyle Tucker has been the best player for the Astros so far this season driving in seven runs. Four different players have scored at least four runs.
The Astros are 6-1 in their last seven games overall. The over is 4-1 in the Astros last five road games. The Angels are 6-2 in their last eight home games. The over is 4-1 in the Angels last five Monday games. THe Astros are 0-5 in their last five games.The over is 4-0 in the last four meetings in Los Angeles.
