The Angels will play against the Orioles and Twins following this series.

Angels vs Reds Prediction

Cincinnati snuck through late to strike first in game one, and there’s a good chance they can bring that momentum into Saturday’s matchup. The Angels have struggled to get production around Mike Trout and Taylor Ward, and if Graham Ashcraft builds on another solid outing, that trend may continue here. Give the Over a look in case a resilient LAA team comes out, but let’s back Cincinnati for this interleague battle.
