Philadelphia Phillies vs LA Angels Prediction

The Philadelphia Phillies continue to put up crooked numbers offensively, and now they're facing Patrick Sandoval, who has been dreadful through 25.1 innings. The LA Angels also continue to lose games even when the offense shows up, and now they're going to be without Mike Trout for quite some time due to knee surgery. Zack Wheeler has also been great this season, with an ERA under 2 and a .164 allowed batting average. You could argue the Phillies should be even steeper favorites. Give me the Phillies to get another win out west.
