The Athletics and Angels continue their series on Tuesday night as both teams continue to battle it out in the cellar of the AL West.
Currently, the Angels hold the edge by 2.5 games after their win on Monday night.
Oakland is just looking for the finish line at this point.
The A’s have dropped 6 of their last 7 games and their offense has looked as bad as ever over the past 3 defeats. Oakland has managed just 1 run in their past 3 losses as scoring runs and finding production has been a major issue all season long.
Oakland will have 6 games left this season (2 against LA) to try and get out of last place.
Oakland will send out Daniel Mengden, who is just 2-8 on the season. Mengden has compiled an ERA of 5.74 in his time with the A’s as he continues to struggle in his rookie season.
Mengden has lost 5 of his last 6 decisions and enters play with both wins on the season coming on the road.
The Angels are trying to salvage what has been a horrific year as they can put away any thoughts of last place with a couple more wins here against the A’s.
One player who has loved seeing the last place Athletics this season has been OF Mike Trout. The star OF hitting .433 (26-for-60) with 5 home runs and 11 runs batted over a 16 game span against them this season.
Los Angeles will send out RH Ricky Nolasco, who was acquired from the Twins earlier this season.
Nolasco has won 2 straight starts as he has tossed 13.0 scoreless innings in the pair of wins. The wins have been no slouch either as the RH has defeated the Blue Jays and Astros.
In 6 career starts against Oakland, Nolasco is 2-2 as he suffered a loss back on Sept 6 when he allowed 3 runs in 7.0 innings of work.
