Game: Oakland Athletics at Los Angeles Angels Apr 16 2012 10:05PM
Grade: Winner (100)
Reason: 15* Play on Oakland vs. LA Angels Under. Two good pitchers and disappointing offenses meet up tonight in Los Angeles, and we'll look for this one to stay well under the posted total tonight. The Angels played last night on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball back in New York City, and now travel across the country back to Anaheim to take on their in-state rival Athletics.
Brandon McCarthy gets the ball for Oakland, and this will be his fourth start already this season. McCarthy has been impressive, allowing no more than two earned runs in each of his three outings while going a combined 18 innings. And he'll face an Angels lineup that is strong on paper but has struggled out of the gate, especially their big pick up of Albert Pujols who has yet to hit a home run.
LA counters with Jered Weaver, who not only went eight shutout innings in his lone home outing this season, but is also coming off a disappointing effort against Minnesota his last time out, and we love the bounce-back factor for Weaver here. Oakland's offense doesn't pose much of a threat hitting just .201 on the season, so we expect him to be more like his first outing than his last. Both pitchers effective tonight as we look for Weaver to go to 12-1 Under the total against division opponents! 15* Play on Oakland vs. LA Angels Under.
