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

The Athletics come into this game with a 16-24 record overall and in their last series against the Twins they lost two of their three games. In the two losses the A’s only scored five runs, and on Wednesday the pitching staff gave up 14 runs. Seth Brown has been the top offensive player hitting four home runs and driving in 21 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Angels and they were swept in their last series against the Texas Rangers. The pitching during that series gave up 23 runs, and although the offense has been pretty good this season, they haven’t been able to make up for the poor pitching. The Angels offense is ranked 4th in the league while their pitching staff is ranked 6th. Mike Trout has hit 11 home runs and driven in 24 RBIs.

On the mound for the A’s is Frankie Montas who sits with a 2-4 record overall and an ERA of 3.67. In his last start against the Angels he went six innings giving up two runs. 

On the mound for the Angles is Michael Lorenzen who sits with a 4-2 record and an ERA of 3.57. In his last start against the A’s he went seven innings giving up five hits and one runs. 

The A’s are 0-5 in Montas last five starts. The under is 6-0 in Montas last six road starts against a team with a winning record. The under is 4-0 in Montas last four starts during Game 2 of a series. 

I expect both offenses are going to really struggle in this game. Montas hasn’t been awful this season but he hasn’t gotten a ton of run support. Lorenzen is coming off a run where he gave up only one run. Look for both teams to struggle to score and the under is going to cash. The A's have also lost the last five games started by Montas. Look for the Angels to also secure the victory.
