The Los Angeles Angels and Oakland Athletics meet Tuesday in MLB action at Oakland Coliseum. The Los Angeles Angels look for a win after winning 8 of their last 10 games. The Oakland Athletics need a win after losing 6 of their last 8 games.
The Los Angeles Angels have scored 15 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 9 of their last 10 games. The Angels have won 6 of their last 7 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Shohei Ohtani leads the Angels with 159 hits and 95 RBI, while Taylor Ward and Luis Rengifo have combined for 267 hits and 117 RBI. Michael Lorenzen gets the ball, and he is 8-6 with a 4.52 ERA and 78 strikeouts this season. Lorenzen is 3-0 with a 0.45 ERA and 20 strikeouts in his career against the Athletics.
The Oakland Athletics have scored 16 runs in their last 3 games and 3 or fewer runs in 6 of their last 10 games. The Athletics have lost 6 straight games when scoring 3 or fewer runs. Sean Murphy leads the Athletics with 131 hits and 66 RBI, while Tony Kemp and Seth Brown have combined for 229 hits and 118 RBI. Cole Irvin gets the ball, and he is 9-13 with a 4.11 ERA and 123 strikeouts this season. Irvin is 2-6 with a 3.11 ERA and 37 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Angels are 3-7 in their last 10 road games and 5-1 in their last 6 games vs. a left-handed starter. The Athletics are 22-49 in their last 71 home games and 16-36 in their last 52 overall. The under is 5-1 in Angels last 6 overall. The under is 5-1 in Athletics last 6 overall. The under is 18-6-2 in the last 26 meetings.
Michael Lorenzen has been hit or miss this season, and he's not good on the road, where he has a 6.49 ERA and .264 allowed batting average. Cole Irvin has had similar issues, and he's coming off a September where he allowed 40 hits and 25 earned runs in 27.1 innings. This total is more than reasonable, and both offenses have been hot recently. I'll take a stab with the over 7 runs.
