Los Angeles Angels
The Los Angeles Angles have played their way into a wildcard spot. The Angels are 6-3 over their last nine games and currently a half game ahead of the Minnesota Twins, for the final wildcard spot in the postseason. Tonight the Angels open a two game road series against the Nationals.
Yusmerio Petit (3-0, 2.36 ERA) will make his second start and 43rd appearance of the season. In his only start this year, he pitched eight innings, allowing six hits, two runs and nine strikeouts in the no decision. Petit held the Blue Jays to a .188 batting average in that start.
The Nationals can breath easier, as they found out Bryce Harper is not going to be out for the season. The injury looked far worse than what it was.
He has a hyper extended knee and bone bruise. He will be back in enough time to tune up for the postseason, around mid to late September.
Gio Gonzalez (10-5 Overall, 2.59 ERA) will make his second start of the year against the Angels. Gonzalez lost the first meeting, 7-0. He pitched five innings, allowing four hits, four runs, one home run, three walks and three strikeouts in the loss.
The Angels hit .238 against him in that outing.

This is a tricky run total. The game will be close throughout, and I expect the number of runs to stay under 8.5. Take the under when choosing the combined run total in this game.
