It may have been best for Boston to get out of town.
The Red Sox look to put an end to their losing ways when they head into Los Angeles to take on the Angels Thursday night.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox saw an opportunity to take control of the AL East back, but a rough series at home against the Tigers kept them in 3rd place in the AL East.
Boston was swept away by Detroit, as Miguel Cabrera clobbered a solo home run in the top of the 9th in Wednesday’s series finale to seal their fate.
Luckily for them, the Blue Jays and Orioles couldn’t do much or any damage this week, keeping them at 2.5 games in the division.
Boston will send out LH David Price, who tries to find his form after getting knocked around a bit.
Price is 1-3 over his last 6 starts, compiling an ERA of 5.30. The numbers get even worse. In 3 of those starts, he’s allowed 11 hits or more.
Price has gone 5-5 with a 3.59 ERA in 12 career starts against the Angels.
Los Angeles Angels
The Angels continue to try and play a bit of a spoiler role, as they have had no luck this season within the AL West.
One silver lining to all this has been the play of Albert Pujols. In the month of July, Pujols has compiled 28 RBIs, which is easily most in the majors.
Johnny Giavotella will look to carry his momentum offensively in here, as he had an 8 for 12 series against the Royals, which saw back to back 3 hit performances.
Pitching wise, the Angels will send out RH Jered Weaver. Weaver has had an up and down season, going 8-8 with an ERA that sits 5.32.
Weaver allowed 6 runs in his last start, to make push him to 2-2 in his last 4 starts.
He is 4-6 with a 4.16 ERA in 16 career starts against the Red Sox.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Los Angeles Angels MLB Prediction:
The Red Sox had their chance to gain control back, but lack of offensive production in 2 of the games, combined with bad pitching in the other did them in.
Price is looking to find his form again and this may be the perfect chance.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Boston Red Sox -1.5 -110
Price gets a lineup that hasn’t been consistent at all. With the exception of Pujols, the Angels have really struggled. Give the edge to the Red Sox and Price here, who bounce back.
