Los Angeles Angels vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
The Angels have done a good job this year taking care of teams with losing records. I look for that to continue on Friday.
Los Angeles is the better team and I am picking them to do enough against this Tribe squad to get a win.
I look for Barria to be solid and for the Halos to hit around Hentges early and often.
I like the Angels as a dog on the road.
