Like a few other teams, Opening Day was a complete wreck for the Angels.
They’ll look to find a rebound and an answer with their pitching here on Tuesday night.
The way Opening Day went for Los Angeles was kind of expected, as the Cubs came into town and completely ripped the Angels apart.
The Angels saw Garret Richards go 5.0 innings allowing 3 runs as he really labored all night long. Richards continued to struggle and work himself into jams, but he never did really break as the damage was limited. However, what was expected to be the problem for the Angels was exactly that on Monday as the bullpen completely failed, allowing 6 runs.
Los Angeles will not look to rebound offensively too. They were shutout by Jake Arrieta and saw just 3 hits come their way. Focusing on putting together quality at bats and being patient will be a major key for them here.
The Cubs had one of the busiest offseasons and it has certainly put a target on their back. Chicago dished out a lot of money to acquire a lot of players, as everything went according to plan on Opening Day for them. Chicago crushed the Angeles for 9 runs on 11 hits, as they got a dinger from Montero.
One of those offseason acquisitions made a giant impact early and set the tone offensively as Dexter Fowler was a giant reason for success on Monday night. Fowler went 3 for 4 with 3 runs scored. He will be the tone setter for this lineup all season long, making him a giant key to success.
The top 3 in the Cubs order in Fowler, Heyward, and Zobrist are all acquisitions they made. The trio went 6 for 14 with 5 runs. This kind of production is not only expected from these three, but will make this team unbeatable if they continue to do stuff like they did on Monday.

Free Chicago Cubs vs. LA Angels MLB Prediction:
It’s just so tough to see what the Angels can do this year. This team has Mike Trout and Albert Pujols to build around, but other than that this offense isn’t that threatening.
Jake Arrieta had no problem shutting down the Angels on Monday and Jon Lester should have similar success here.
