The Los Angeles Angels and Oakland Athletics face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at Angel Stadium. 

The Angels have had a big season sitting with a 24-16 record overall but they have lost three games in a row against the Texas Rangers. Over the last three games the Rangers have given up 23 runs total, and they are going to need some better pitching in this game. There are the usual big players for this team, but Taylor Ward has been quite impressive, hitting nine home runs and driving in 23 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Oakland Athletics who sit with a 16-24 record overall and in the last game they gave up 14 runs. The A’s offense also hasn’t been all that good averaging only 3.3 runs per game. Catcher Sean Murphy has been the top player for the A’s hitting four home runs and driving in 20 RBIs.

On the mound for the Athletics is Paul Blackburn who sits with a 4-0 record and an ERA of 1.67. In his last start against the Los Angeles Angels, he went 6.2 innings giving up five hits and one earned run.

On the mound for the Angels is Chase Silseth who sits with a 1-0 record and an ERA of 0.00. This will be his second appearance after he was promoted from Triple-A. 

The A’s are 4-0 in their last four road games. The A’s are 0-6 in their last six games played on Friday. The A’s are 1-7 in their last eight games during Game 1 of a series. The under is 4-0 in the Angels last four games played on Friday. The under is 4-0-1 in the A’s last five during Game 1 of a series. 

Chase Silseth looked good in his first start, and he is going to find success against an A’s team that is averaging only 3.3 runs per game. I also expect Blackburn is going to lock down the offense of the Angels. In Blackburn’s last start he only gave up one run. Look for this game to be low-scoring, and the under is going to cash.
