Angels' struggles continue

Los Angeles was trounced by a final score of 16-4 Friday night for its eighth consecutive defeat. Jaime Barria suffered the loss as he gave up five earned runs on six hits with three strikeouts and no walks over five innings of work. Albert Pujols paced the Angels offense as he finished 1-for-3 with a home run and three RBIs. Justin Upton went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and two runs scored. Mike Trout ended the contest 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and a run. Andrew Heaney draws the start today as he enters with a 1-3 record, 5.09 ERA and 1.37 WHIP with 54 strikeouts over 46 innings pitched.

Red Sox explode for 16 runs

Boston cruised to a 16-4 home win Friday night over Los Angeles to improve to 62-56 overall and 30-30 at home. J.D. Martinez led the offense with a big night as he finished 4-for-5 with two home runs, two doubles, four runs scored and four RBIs. Mitch Moreland went 2-for-5 with a homer, a double and three RBIs. Mookie Betts was 2-for-4 with a home run, a double, a walk and two runs. Rafael Devers finished 2-for-5 with a homer and three RBIs. Marcus Walden picked up the win in relief as he threw 2 1/3 spotless innings with one strikeout. Rick Porcello will be on the mound this afternoon for the Red Sox as he comes in with a 10-8 record, 5.54 ERA and 1.44 WHIP plus 104 strikeouts over 128 1/3 innings pitched.

MLB Betting Trends

Los Angeles

The Angels are 2-12 in their last 14 games overall. Los Angeles is 0-5 in its last five games versus a right-handed starter.

Boston

The Red Sox are 5-1 in the last six Porcello starts. Boston is 4-0 in its last four games versus the AL West.

Prediction:

Neither pitcher is having a season to remember fondly, but Porcello is at least a former AL Cy Young Award winner and will be backed by a smoking hot offense. With Heaney having high pitch counts early in games and rarely pitching into the sixth or seventh inning, I'm going to say Boston tees off on him plus the bullpen to secure another victory.
