Angels lose makeup game
Los Angeles dropped an 8-1 decision at the Cubs Monday afternoon in a makeup game to fall to 29-31 overall and 14-17 on the road. The Angels trailed 6-0 before scoring their lone run in the top of the seventh inning. Mike Trout helped pace the offense as he was 1-for-4 and scored a run. Jonathan Lucroy was 0-for-3, but had the lone RBI. Tommy La Stella finished 1-for-3 plus a walk. Trevor Cahill took the loss as the bulk reliever as he surrendered five earned runs on six hits with three strikeouts and two walks over 4 1/3 innings. Griffin Canning will start tonight for Los Angeles as he comes in with a 2-1 record, 3.06 ERA and 0.96 WHIP with 34 strikeouts over 32 1/3 innings.
MLB Betting Trends
The Athletics are 6-0 in their last six road games. Oakland is 5-0 in its last five series openers.
The Angels are 5-2 in their last seven games overall. Los Angeles is 2-5 in its last seven home games.
Montas and the A's are in need of a win and they've played well on the road lately. With LA coming on an afternoon game yesterday with travel, Oakland should be the more rested team. This one will probably be low-scoring, but Montas has been good in most of his starts this season and I like Oakland to get the best of its AL West counterparts here.
