Oddsmakers from online sportsbooks currently list the Padres as a -125 favorite. As of this writing, 63% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Angels to beat the Padres on the moneyline. This information is subject to change, however, so be sure to check out our MLB Public Betting Page for updated figures on this game.
Angels’ Pena allows three runs in start vs. A’s
Felix Pena pitched 5 2/3 innings and allowed three runs Friday against the A's. If Pena could have gotten one more out, he likely would have ended up with the win tonight. Instead, it went to Jim Johnson, who got the last out of the sixth and then came out. Pena has just one run in his nine starts for the Halos, though he's done surprisingly solid work overall. While he hasn't worked deep into games, he's given up more than three runs just once.
Padres’ Erlin allows four runs in start vs. Brewers
Robbie Erlin yielded four runs -- two earned -- over five innings in his start Thursday against the Brewers. Erlin has allowed five runs -- three earned -- through 10 innings in his two starts since being added to the Padres rotation. He might get shuffled back to the pen later on if some of the Padres' younger arms perform better, but the team figures to stick with him for now.
