The Baltimore Orioles and the Los Angeles Angels are preparing for a series in Baltimore. Following a loss to the Guardians, the Angels will hit the road to take on the Orioles in a four-game series starting on Monday.
The Angels suffered a defeat in the decisive game against Cleveland, marking their sixth loss in the last eight games. Currently holding a 21-20 record, they occupy the second spot in the AL West, trailing the division-leading Rangers by four games. In their recent game, the Angels struggled with their hitting, with Taylor Ward being the standout performer. Despite a strong outing from pitcher Patrick Sandoval, the team ended up on the losing side.
Shohei Ohtani, the standout player for the Angels, will take the mound against the Orioles. Ohtani has been impressive this season with a 4-1 record and remarkable statistics, including leading the AL with 66 strikeouts. However, he recently suffered a loss against the Astros, and his performance in the last three starts has been less successful. While Ohtani has played at Oriole Park at Camden Yards as a hitter, he has only started one game against the Orioles in his career.
On the other hand, the Orioles enter the series on a four-game winning streak, including a victory over Pittsburgh. Currently boasting a 26-13 record, they occupy the second position in the AL East, trailing the division-leading Rays by three games. Adley Rutschman and Gunnar Henderson played crucial roles in the victory against Pittsburgh, while pitcher Tyler Wells earned the win.
Grayson Rodriguez will take the mound as the starting pitcher for the Orioles in this game, aiming for his third win of the season. Despite a 5.08 ERA, Rodriguez has shown improvement in his recent starts. Although he has never faced the Angels before, Rodriguez has previous experience starting at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
While Ohtani has been impressive on the mound, the Angels have struggled offensively. If the Orioles can find a way to challenge Ohtani and receive support from their bullpen, they have a good chance of coming out on top in the opening game of the series.
