Los Angeles Angels
The Angels are in the thick of the wildcard race, and currently sit a half game above the Minnesota Twins and Kansas City Royals for the final AL wildcard spot.
Mike Trout has been playing like the MVP we all know him to be during their six game winning streak.
Ricky Nolasco (5-12, 5.24 ERA) has not pitched against the Nationals this season. He has been bad on the road.
Nolasco is 2-7 with a 5.37 ERA in 12 road starts this year. Opposing lineups are averaging .311 against him in those starts this season.
Right hand hitters are averaging .327 against Nolasco this year.
The Nationals are over the fact they will be without Bryce Harper until close to the playoffs.
Yes he is the vocal point of the team, but the Nationals are loaded with bats. Daniel Murphy, Carlos Rendon and Ryan Zimmerman should right the ship until his return.
Tanner Roark (9-7, 4.74 ERA) has not pitched against the Angels this year, and has not pitched so well at Nationals Park this season. Roark is 3-5 with a 5.24 home ERA.
Opposing hitters are averaging .278 against him at home this year. He is 4-3 with a 4.57 ERA in nine daytime starts (10 outings) in 2017.
