Angels’ lose second straight
The Los Angeles Angels lost their second straight game on Monday, losing 5-3. Los Angeles is now 37-30 overall and 20-12 on the road. The Angels are averaging 4.51 runs per game on offense while allowing 4.00 per contest.
Jaime Barria gets the start for the Angels tonight. He has started seven games this season and has a 5-1 record with a 2.48 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP. He has pitched a total of 36.1 innings this season and has 30 strikeouts with nine walks. He is coming off a six-inning scoreless effort against the Rangers.
Mariners staying atop AL West
The Mariners picked up their second straight win and fourth in five games on Monday. They are also 18-5 in their last 23 games. Seattle is now 42-24 on the season and 21-12 at home. The Mariners are putting up 4.38 runs per game this season while allowing 4.05 per contest.
Mike Leake gets the start for the Mariners tonight. Leake has a 6-3 record through 13 starts this year with a 4.46 ERA and 1.28 WHIP. He has 50 strikeouts with 17 walks over 80.2 innings of work this year. Leake has held his last four opponents to two runs or less.
MLB Betting Trends
The Angels are 25-11 in their last 36 Tuesday games and 15-7 in their last 22 games against AL West opponents. However, they are just 1-5 in their last six games against a winning team.
The Mariners have won eight of their last nine at home against a right-handed starter and they have won 12 of their last 14 at home overall. They also are 22-7 in their last 29 against a right-handed starter.
Leake’s season numbers are great, but he has been finding his stride lately. Since April 23, he has dropped his ERA by over 2 runs and the Mariners have won his last six starts. Barria has been good as well, but I just feel the Mariners are really locked in and going to continue to win at home.
The Pick: Seattle Mariners -115
