The Houston Astros will look to extend their lead atop the AL West, as they take on Shohei Ohtani and the LA Angels at Angel Stadium in Anaheim California.
The Astros have gone through a bit of a rough patch recently, but they still have an incredibly good roster and they should be ready to go for the playoffs where I expect they will go and make a deep run.
Houston has one of the best offenses in the league and although they have not been doing as well recently, they still rank first in the league in runs, average, and OBP and I do not see that changing by the end of the season.
Luis Garcia will head to the hill and he has some really nice numbers this season coming in here with an impressive 3.29 average and an 8-6 record and he was bale to bounce back in a big way last time out putting in a quality start against the Minnesota Twins in an eventual win.
Los Angeles Angels
It has been a little bit up and down recently for the Angels, as they have only won 2 of their last 6 games but those games did take place against the Dodgers and the Blue Jays so not exactly soft competition.
It is great for the Angels that they have been able to remain in striking distance of a playoff spot, as you feel like they could accomplish a lot once Mike Trout returns from his injury, as the Angels would then be able to roll out 2 MVP caliber players.
Jaime Barria has flashed some serious upside this season and it will be interesting to see if he is up to the tough task of facing the best offense in the league. Barria was decent in his last outing going 6 innings against the Dodgers and allowing 6 hits and 3 earned runs so he has had success against elite offenses in the past.

Free Houston Astros vs. Los Angeles Angels MLB Prediction:
I think there are some signs of this Houston Astros team turning things around and I think they can have some success against this Angels team, as they are still not playing consistent fundamentally sound baseball and this is the type of spot where that really shows.
There is also a huge difference in terms of these two batting lineups, as the Angels order has some talent at the top, but they also do not have much depth and that will also play a key factor here.
