LA Angels vs Arizona Diamondbacks Prediction

I'm not thrilled to get behind Slade Cecconi, who has an ERA well over 5 and has had some of his roughest moments at home. However, the LA Angels remain a mess as a franchise, and they're showing no signs of turning things around with an offense that can't score. The Arizona Diamondbacks are stringing together offense, so if Cecconi has his issues, we can be confident he'll be backed up. Not an ideal pitching matchup, but the Diamondbacks are the better team across the board. I'll side with the Diamondbacks and the reasonable price.
