Los Angeles Angels
Ricky Nolasco beat Kendall Graveman, 2-1, when they faced each other two starts ago in Los Angeles.
We get a rematch on Monday in Oakland with Nolasco insisting he is fine after straining his calf slightly in his last start.
It’s a bit of a different Nolasco than we’ve been used to seeing over the years, a reduced velocity but improved command. He’s walked just seven batters in over 32 innings, compared to 27 Ks.
Los Angeles has dropped a game below .500 after losing two of three in Houston over the weekend.
The A’s won the last two games of their weekend series against Detroit to improve to 9-7 at the Coliseum. Sonny Gray gave up one earned in 4.2 innings but couldn’t last long enough to get a win because the defense behind him allowed three unearned runs.
I actually really like this Oakland starting rotation between Triggs, Graveman and Hahn. Throw in the established guy with Gray and it’s a quiet, yet balanced rotation of guys who will get you six, seven innings and leave you in a position to win. I wouldn’t be surprised if Oakland starts playing better.
That said, Graveman wasn’t good in his last time to the mound – six earned in 3.1 innings against the Twins. He’s still got a WHIP of 1.21 and should be just fine going forward. He’s just a good-looking pitcher, to my eye.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- LAA are 3-11 in their last 14 games as an underdog.
- Under is 19-7 in LAA last 26 road games.
- LAA are 4-10 in their last 14 road games.
- OAK are 3-9 in their last 12 overall.
- OAK are 3-9 in their last 12 games on grass.
- OAK are 6-2 in their last 8 home games.
Free Los Angeles Angels vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction: Graveman gets the best of Nolasco this time.
Nolasco got Graveman in LA and I suspect that the Oakland starter will have just enough extra juice to do the same to Nolasco in Oakland.
