The Los Angeles Angels and Oakland Athletics face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at the Oakland Coliseum. 

Tyler Anderson Needs to be Better

Tyler Anderson is on the mound for the Angels and he has been disappointing all season. Coming into this game he sits with a 5-6 record and an ERA of 5.58. In his last start against the Phillies he went five innings giving up seven hits and six runs. The Angels have lost his last five starts. The Angels are averaging 4.74 runs while their pitching is giving up 5.13 runs per game. The offense is ranked 111th while the pitching is ranked 26th 

Athletics Ready for Vegas

The Athletics have submitted their proposal to relocate to Las Vegas and they are playing like a team that isn’t really interested in playing anymore this season. This is a team that isn’t well constructed and they just don’t have enough offensive talent to really compete. The A’s are averaging 3.64 rus whip their pitching is 5.87 runs per game. The offense is ranked 30th in baseball. 

Shane’s Free Pick

This game is a matchup between an awful pitcher and an awful offense, and something has to give here. Anderson hasn’t been good overall, but he has had a couple of good starts, and he’s going to find a way to have one of those good starts here. The A’s offense is going to really struggle to get the offense going here, and that is going to be the difference here as the Angels will get the job done. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
