Los Angeles has officially entered into a danger zone as they get set to begin their 3 game weekend series in Cleveland on Friday. Los Angeles put the brakes on their bad play with a 2-0 win over the Tigers in the series finale on Thursday, but have still dropped 10 of 14.

With the win, Los Angeles still sits 5.5 out and in 3rd place in the AL West, but sit just 0.5 game behind Texas and Minnesota for the 2nd Wild Card.

Los Angeles runs into a Cleveland team that comes in off a 2 game sweep of the Brewers in a series that saw them score 17 runs in those 2 games.

Cleveland has a potential chance to really ruin some playoff hopes as they will get a chance at Los Angeles and Toronto over the next 2 series.

A pair of pitchers coming off bad starts square off here as RH Danny Salazar goes for Cleveland and LH Andrew Heaney opposes him for Los Angeles.

First pitch is set for 7:10 PM EST.

Los Angeles Angels

The Angels offensive woes have now had to deal with the pitching problems as Los Angeles comes into Friday’s contest trying to gain some momentum with just over a month left in the season.

The Angels did grab a series win to kick off their 9 game road trip as they took 2 of 3 in Detroit. The Angels were nearly no hit by Justin Verlander in game 2 of the series, but rebounded with a solid pitching performance from Matt Shoemaker in the rubber match.

Los Angeles will have to get used to playing better on the road as 20 of their final 35 games are away from home. However, that doesn’t hold much hope for them as they are 26-35 S.U. away from home.

The Angels go with LH Andrew Heaney. The southpaw comes in off a performance that saw him allow 8 runs on 7 hits in jut 3.1 innings of work.

This will be Heaney’s first career start against the Indians, but he’s been a solid road pitcher this season. Heaney is 2-1 with an ERA 2.13 in 4 starts.

Cleveland Indians

The Indians traded away some savvy veterans and dumped some contracts and ever since then, they’ve been playing their best baseball of the season. Cleveland comes in off a 2 game sweep of Milwaukee and will look to make it 3 in a row on Friday.

Cleveland is clicking offensively as 2B Jason Kipnis led the way with a 5 for 9 series performance with a homer, 3 doubles, and 5 runs batted in.

In fact, the top 3 in the order are tearing the cover off the ball. Kipnis, Lindor, and Brantley are all on fire.

The Indians will throw RH Danny Salazar, as he tries to rebound from a terrible outing in New York.

Salazar surrendered 2 first inning home runs and 5 runs overall in just 4.2 innings of work.

Salazar had a solid outing in Los Angeles this season as he allowed 1 run on 6 hits, but did not factor in the decision.

  • Angels are 9-3 in their last 12 road games vs. a team with a losing home record.
