On Wednesday, June 7th, the Los Angeles Angels will face the Chicago Cubs at the Angel Stadium of Anaheim for the second game in their three-game interleague series. The Angels took first blood on Tuesday to win the first game of the series 7-4.
After suffering three consecutive losses, the Angels have rebounded with two wins in three games and currently stand at 32-30. Shohei Ohtani has led their offense by hitting 16 home runs since June 1, while their home field advantage has allowed them to capture 14 out of 18 victories during this span. In his last ten games he has 29 extra base hits, 10 doubles and 3 triples.
The Cubs have struggled in recent weeks and enter this matchup having lost four of six games; moreover, their pitching staff has an ERA of 4.15 which ranks them in 14th place in MLB.
Last time out against the San Diego Padres, the Cubs failed to get a single run in two of their games and there is plenty of room for improvement against right-handed pitchers. Jameson Taillon will start for them; his season record shows him to be 1-3 with an 6.81 ERA, a 1.51 WHIP and 35 strikeouts; however he has fared much better when pitching away than at home where his 5.40 ERA stands out more pronouncedly. Scoring enough runs against this Angels squad will prove challenging.
Los Angeles will counter with Jaime Barria, who boasts a 2-2 record with a 1.85 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP and 34 strikeouts this season. Los Angeles boasts an excellent home run hitting team that should score enough runs against an underachieving Cubs lineup. Barria’s last two outings both lasted five innings, during which time he gave up a single earned run on 6 hits and 3 walks.
