The Oakland Athletics and Los Angeles Angels face off on Tuesday in an MLB showdown at Angel Stadium.
The A’s come into this game with a 56-67 record overall and they are coming off another terrible loss on Sunday. The pitching gave up 13 runs to the Mets and that was the difference as they were knocked off by nine runs. Oakland’s offense hasn’t been good enough and they are averaging only 3.53 runs per game which is 29th in the league. Seth Brown has hit 25 home runs and driven in 66 RBIs.
On the other side of this matchup is the Angels who sit with a 67-86 record overall and they found some success against the Minnesota Twins in the last series. On Sunday the offense scored 10 runs and that led to the easy victory. The Angels offense is averaging 3.85 runs per game which is 25th in the league. Mike Trout has hit 37 home runs and driven in 77 RBIs so far this season. In this game the Angels are going to need to get the bats going, and continue the hot bats from over the weekend.
On the mound for the A’s is James Kaprielian who sits with a 4-9 record and an ERA of 4.43. In his last start against the Seattle Mariners he went seven innings giving up two hits and zero runs.
The Angels are 0-5 in Sandoval’s last starts on Tuesday. The over is 4-0 in the A’s last four games. The under is 4-0 in Kaprielians' last four starts on five days of rest. The under is 7-0 in Kaprielians' last 7 starts vs. American League West.
This is a perfect spot to take the A’s. Kaprielian is coming off a start where he gave up zero runs, and he’s going to lockdown the Angels in this game. It wouldn’t shock me if the angels were shutout, and this is going to be an easy victory for Oakland. Back the A’s to get the job done on the money line. In terms of the total, this game is going to stay under the total.
