The struggling Boston Red Sox close out their California series with the Los Angeles Angels as they try to claw back atop the AL East. Meanwhile, the Angels are just waiting for next season.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox find themselves in third place as the month of July comes to a close.
Boston has struggled and it doesn’t help that the surging Toronto Blue Jays have overtaken both the Sox and the Orioles in the division.
Boston still possesses one of the best lineups in the American League, but the starting pitching has been pretty suspect lately.
The Sox will turn to knuckleballer Steven Wright in this game as he looks to build off a successful season so far. Wright comes in with a 12-5 record to go along with an impressive 3.12 ERA.
He suffered his worst start of the year in his previous appearance against the Tigers, allowing eight earned runs in less than five innings of work.
He’s also had a rough July, compiling a 6.37 ERA during the month.
Los Angeles Angels
The Angels continue to stay irrelevant this year as they come in to this contest 10 games under .500.
The Halos are in desperate need of several key positions and will undoubtedly be sellers as the trade deadline reaches its final stages.
Pitching has been the Angels’ Achilles Heel this year. They rank in the bottom third of nearly every pitching category, including ERA, WHIP and home runs allowed.
Los Angeles is desperate for help in the rotation, so the team will send Tyler Skaggs to the mound to counter the knuckleballer. The young lefty was astounding in his season debut against the Royals on July 26.
He allowed just three hits in seven innings of shutout ball in a 13-0 thrashing. Let’s see if he can keep that going against the Red Sox.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Red Sox are 20-14 in day games.
- Red Sox are 7-3 in Wright’s last 10 starts.
- Wright has a 2.13 road ERA.
- Angels are 24-27 at home.
- Angels are 13-17 in day games.
Free Boston Red Sox vs. Los Angeles Angels MLB Prediction:
With Toronto back in the AL East driver’s seat, the Red Sox need to rattle off some much-needed wins.
Steven Wright has provided the Sox with 12 wins of his own so far and he continues to be one of the best road pitchers in the American League.
On the other hand, the Angels are looking ahead to next season as they stumble through the rest of 2016 with one of the worst pitching staffs in the big leagues. I like the Sox in this spot.
