Shane’s Free Pick

Urquidy has really struggled so far this season for the Astros and the Angels bats are going to find success here. Look for a good start from Silseth and the Astros bats are going to score only three or four runs total. That isn’t going to be enough to get it done, and the Angels are going to secure the victory here. Every game is big for the Angels and they will get the job done here.
