The Los Angeles Angels and Oakland Athletics face off on Sunday in an American League East showdown at the Ring Central Coliseum. The Angels have won two of the three games in this series and it would have been three if it wouldn’t have been for a walk-off three-run homer.
The Angels come into this game with a 23-13 record overall and they did a good job of bouncing back on Saturday night, after the walk-off on Saturday afternoon. When people think of the Angels everyone thinks about Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani, but they should really be thinking about Taylor Ward too. On Saturday night, Ward had three hits and drove in five RBIs. Ward has hit eight home runs and driven in 22 RBIs.
On the other side of this matchup is the Oakland Athletics who sit with a 15-21 record overall and as of late, the offense hasn’t been great. In the three games in this series, the A’s have only scored five runs total, and in two of the games, they scored one run or less. Sean Murphy and Seth Brown have both driven in 17 RBIs so far this season.
Getting the start for the Angels will be Patrick Sandoval who sits with a 1-1 record and an ERA of 2.03. In his last start against the Nationals, Sandoval went 5.2 innings giving up seven hits and three runs.
On the mound for the A’s will be Frankie Montas who sits with a 2-3 record overall and an ERA of 3.77 ERA. In his last start against the Tigers he went 6.1 innings giving up seven hits and four runs.
The A’s are 0-4 in Montas last four starts. The Angels are 7-1 in Sandoval's last eight starts against a team with a losing record. The over is 4-0 in the A’s last four during Game 4 of a series. The over is 4-0-1 in Montas last five starts during Game 4 of a series.
The A’s bats have been cold coming into this game, and it’s not going to get any easier going against Sandoval who sits with a 2.03. Look for the A’s to only score a run or two, like has been the case in this series and the Angels will get the job done. Back the Angels to secure the victory.
