O's fall in afternoon finale

Angels sweep Dodgers
Los Angeles won both games at the Dodgers including Wednesday night's 3-2 triumph to improve to 54-49 overall and 27-26 on the road. Kole Calhoun paced the offensive effort as he finished 3-for-4 with a home run, two doubles and two RBIs. David Fletcher was 2-for-4 with a run scored. Mike Trout ended the game 0-for-2 with a walk, a run and an RBI. Jaime Barria picked up the win as he gave up one earned run on three hits with three strikeouts and two walks over five innings. Hansel Robles threw a perfect ninth inning for his 16th save.

MLB Betting Trends
The Orioles are 19-47 in their last 66 games overall. Baltimore is 6-20 in its last 26 games overall.
The Angeles are 7-1 in their last eight series openers. Los Angeles is 5-2 in its last seven home games.
While Suarez isn't a sure thing on the mound, he does possess a good strikeout rate and will be facing a weak Orioles lineup. He also should get plenty of run support from an Angels lineup that should get to Yacabonis plus the Baltimore bullpen early and often. Take LA with confidence tonight and consider the runline bet.
