The A’s got off to a slow start losing 3 of their first 4 games, but they are coming off a sweep of the Seattle Mariners where their pitching was superb. In the 3-game series they only gave up a total of 4 runs.
The Angels are coming off a win, but at 2-4 they have yet to win 2 games in a row. They are a road underdog tonight, which is not surprising since the A’s have their Ace in Sonny Gray on the hill.
In their last games the Angels beat the Texas Rangers 3-1 and the A’s beat the Seattle Mariners 2-1.
The Angels have won 4 of their last 5 games facing the A’s.
The Reason the Angels only have 2 wins is that their offense has struggled out of the gates and they only rank 29th in the Majors in runs scored. They have yet to score over 4 runs in a game this season.
In their 6 games this season the Angels have scored 12 total runs, have a .200 batting average, and an AL-low eight extra-base hits.
Nick Tropeano was recently called up from AAA since starter Andrew Heaney is injured. Last season he was 3-2 with a 3.93 ERA and he had success against the A’s winning both of his starts facing them and struck out 16 in 12 innings of work.
This is the first road game for the Angels this season.
Last season the Angels won 11 of their 19 games facing the A’s including winning 5 of 9 in Oakland.
The A’s won their series with the Mariners because of their pitching, which ranks 4th in the Majors in team ERA. Their pitching will be key, as they only rank tied for 19th in runs scored and 25th in team batting average.
Sonny Gray gets the start for the A’s tonight and in his first start of the season he was solid going 7 innings and only giving up 1 earned run in a 2-1 win over the Chicago White Sox.
Gray is 4-1 with a 2.57 ERA in his last 8 home starts, but the one loss was to the Angels. In his last 2 starts facing them he has given up 12 runs in only 11 innings of work.
The A’s are only 1-5 in Gray’s last 6 starts when their opponent allows 2 runs or less in their previous game.
The A’s sweep of the Mariners came in Seattle and this season the A’s are only 1-3 at home.
