The Angels fought back and evened the series with the Astros after going into extra innings. Michael Hermosillo drove in the winning run with a sac fly to take down the Stros 5-4.
Zach Greinke brought a perfect game into the sixth inning for Houston before the Angels put two singles together to get on the board and ended up scoring two runs in the inning.
The Astros still look disgruntled after their series with the Dodgers. They know everyone in baseball hates them and they have a target on their back the size of the moon.
The combination of Springer, Altuve, and Bregman is hitting a combined 0.149 to begin the season. Not great sine they are trying to defend the AL pennant.
Josh James gets his first start of 2020 as the Astros have had to create a rotation on the fly due to injuries. James is 0-0 on the year with a 9.00 ERA. In 2019, James was 5-1 with a 4.91 ERA to his credit.
Los Angeles Angels
Angels have some good news as Ohtani returns to the mound after missing a start due to some throwing issues. In his first start, he let up four runs without even recording an out against the Athletics. He’ll look to bounce back here against a struggling Astros team.
As a team, the halos average 4.88 runs a game while giving up 5.75 runs on the pitching side of the ball. With Anthony Rendon back the Los Angeles has been much better at pushing runs across the plate.
Mike Trout sat for the second day in a row which is something you don’t want to see if you are an Angel’s fan. Hopefully, he returns to the lineup on Sunday for Ohtani’s start.
Free Houston Astros vs. Los Angeles Angels MLB Prediction:
I like for Ohtani to come back and show the pitching skills he executed in 2018. Let’s not forgot he didn’t through a pitch in 2019 in a live game so he obviously has some things to work through. Angels are going to back their future ace with some runs and take the rubber match of the series.
