Oakland Athletics vs. Los Angeles Angels MLB Prediction:
This Athletics have looked good so far in this series. They need to win these games if they wish to gain ground in their division. They will likely be a wild card team unless the Astros really start to fall off.
The Athletics are the better team and they have played very well this year against the Angels and I look for that to continue on Sunday. I feel confident with the A’s in this one.
James Kaprielian did get roughed up in his last start, but I look for him to bounce back in this one. I look for the Athletics to hit around Detmers enough to get a win.
