The Angels dropped 3 of 4 games at home against the Athletics and fell further away from a possible playoff spot. LA held Oakland to only 14 runs but they struggled to score runs themselves, only plating 4 runs.

Shohei Ohtani continues his MVP season and sits atop the league in several offensive categories. He has 37 HR’s (1st), 82 RBI’s (2nd), and a 1.039 OPS (2nd).
Shohei will also be making his 15th start of the season. He has a 5-1 record, 3.04 ERA, and 1.13 WHIP on the mound.
Texas was just 1-12 since the All-Star break heading into this weekend at home against the Mariners. They doubled their win total by grabbing the final 2 games of the series in comeback fashion as rookie Jonah Heim hit walk-off home runs in both games.
The Rangers entered Monday in the basement of the AL West, 25.5 games behind the Astros for the top spot in the division. They are a whopping 21 games back of the Athletics for the final wild card spot.
Texas dealt arguably their best player Joey Gallo to the Yankees and pitcher Kyle Gibson to the Phillies at the tread deadline as the team continues to try and rebuild their roster.

Free Los Angeles Angels vs. Texas Rangers MLB Prediction:
This one is a battle of the bottom two teams in the AL West but there is a pretty wide gap between the squads.
Los Angeles is still on the fringes of the wild card chase and they hope that the impending potential return of Mike Trout can help them get back in the race.
The Rangers struggle to find wins and only have lately due to late heroics.
Take the Angels on the road in the opener.
