On Friday, July 7, Major League Baseball drama continues when the Los Angeles Dodgers and Los Angeles Angels square off at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California. A 2-game interleague series between the Angels and Dodgers gets underway in Los Angeles. The Dodgers swept a two-game series at Angel Stadium in Anaheim in June, winning both matches 2-0. This is the second meeting between these teams this year.
After being swept by the San Diego Padres and having only won 1 of their previous 8 matches, the Angels are in deep trouble going into this contest. They will be playing their 2nd consecutive road series. The Angels have dropped 4 consecutive games when playing at the Dodgers’ stadium, so although the journey doesn’t seem like much, competing there may be. Wellness is yet another issue. Mike Trout will be sidelined for 4 to 8 weeks due to a hamate bone fracture in his left hand, while Anthony Rendon is doubtful after fouling a ball off his shin on Tuesday.
In 13 starts this season, Griffin Canning, a 27-year-old righty, is 6-3 with a 4.29 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, and 71 strikeouts. He will start on Friday at Dodger Stadium. In 5 starts in June, Canning was 2-1 with a 3.41 ERA, 4.26 FIP, and .623 opposition OPS.
After defeating the Pittsburgh Pirates in 3 of 4 matches, the Dodgers remain in great shape. The team of Dave Roberts has completely dominated this series, having won 15 of the previous 18 encounters. The Dodgers have hit well over the past couple of weeks. Over 410 at-bats, they hit 261/.344/.468 with 26 extra-base hits. With a 4.63 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, and .273 batting average against, throughout that time, their bullpen hasn’t been too impressive.
Tony Gonsolin, a 29-year-old righty, will take the mound on Friday. In 12 starts so far this year, he is 4-3 with a 3.69 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and a 49 strikeouts.
