On Tuesday June 27th, American League powerhouses Los Angeles Angels and Chicago White Sox face off on the diamond for the second match of a four-game series between them. Both squads boast powerful batting lineups and outstanding pitching staffs that should provide for an engaging contest.
In a contest with little offense, Mike Trout’s at-bat troubles stood evident.
He still managed to generate a run, one that wasn’t dependent on swinging the bat, with an opportunity to start a crucial 7-game homestand on the right foot. On Monday night, Shohei Ohtani smashed his 26th homer, Mike Trout scored off a game-ending wild pitch, as the Los Angeles Angels upset the Chicago White Sox 2-1.
The Los Angeles Angels are an energetic young team led by Shohei Ohtani who has proven his worth this season on all fronts. Ohtani has established himself as an effective pitcher while his hitting prowess stands out among MLB top 10 hitters with a .297 average, 26 home runs and 62 RBI, an invaluable asset to the current Angels team.
He will face Chicago and put his 3.13 ERA to the test. At their home ground, Ohtani has limited 5 consecutive opponents to 3 runs or lower. In his previous start, he faced a potent Dodgers attack and threw 7 innings of one-run ball. The Angels’ rotation should be strong thanks to a solid bullpen.
The White Sox were anticipated to compete for the AL Central championship and to be in the playoff hunt. Despite the fact that the division remains wide open, it is not as a result of how brilliantly the White Sox have performed. In terms of runs per game, the offense is ranked 24th. Although injuries might have had a role, this Chicago team’s MLB-worst walk rate and OBP have no justification. Particularly not with a 23rd-ranked slugging percentage. If Chicago hopes to win the Central, this lineup must improve.
Michael Kopech is scheduled for his 16th start of this campaign and comes in with a record of 3-6. His current ERA is 4.06 with a .207 batting average allowed. He is currently 2-2 with a 4.30 ERA away from home and 1-4 in his own stadium with a 4.65 ERA. Opponents have a .411 season slugging percentage over him.
