An AL West battle will take place from Oakland Coliseum as the Los Angeles Angels make the short trip to visit the Oakland Athletics. This is the first meeting between these teams this season.
The Los Angeles Angels are coming into this one after winning their series against the Tampa Bay Rays. They looked great on both sides of the field in the first two games against the Rays. They would like to carry this momentum into this series.
The Oakland Athletics are entering this series after taking three of four games from the Detroit Tigers. The Athletics’ defense was the story in that series, as they shut out the Tigers in two games.
Ohtani hit his 100th career home run, Taylor Ward hit a grand slam and the Angels salvaged a split by beating the the Athletics 9-1 in the nightcap Saturday.
Los Angeles Angels
The Los Angeles Angels have started this 2022 regular season very strong, as they are currently in first place in the AL West.
On the offensive side of the field, the Angels are currently scoring 4.97 runs per game and hitting .248 as a team. This is the third most runs scored per game and the sixth-highest overall batting average.
The Angels have also shown that they have some serious power littered throughout their lineup. They are averaging 1.38 home runs per game, which is the 2nd-highest average in the league. Los Angeles has also already stolen 21 bases, which is the 3rd-most in the MLB. They are very aggressive on the offensive side of the field and they are always trying to move their base runners into scoring position as quickly as they can.
On the defensive side of the field, the Angels have also been very solid to begin this new season. They are currently allowing 3.37 runs per game and have a 1.09 team WHIP rating. This is the 7th least amount of runs given up per game, as the Angels don’t allow many base runners.
The Oakland Athletics have not started this regular season how they would have liked. They are currently in last place in the AL West and they will need to do everything they can to take down the Angels in this series.
On the offensive side of the field, they are struggling bad. The Athletics’ are scoring 3.47 runs per game and hitting .204 as a team. This is the 27th least amount of runs scored per game and the 29th lowest overall team batting average.
The Athletics’ are currently averaging .61 home runs per game, which is the 27th lowest average in the MLB. Their bats are simply cold right now and they aren’t generating enough offense to stay alive in these games.
On the defensive side of the field, the Athletics have also struggled. They are currently allowing 3.55 runs per game and have a 1.22 WHIP rating. This is the 11th least amount of runs surrendered per game and the 13th highest overall team WHIP rating. They aren’t keeping their opponents off the bases and it is making it very difficult for their pitchers to keep the opposing offense from scoring.
