Game Preview


The Los Angeles Angels take on the San Diego Padres on July 3, 2023 at Petco Park for the first game of a three-game series between them.


The coming week ought to be the period that ultimately decides San Diego’s trading deadline fate when the All-Star break approaches. Given the offensive skill (and money) in the lineup daily, it is illogical that the Padres are thinking about selling. San Diego ranks just 20th in runs per game this year, despite a strong June. The Padres use the same strategies as the Angels to achieve success, with the 10th-highest number of home runs and the greatest walk rate in MLB. In fact, they steal more bases.


Most nights, the Padres’ bullpen is excellent, and Blake Snell is an excellent illustration. He pitched 31 innings in June, allowing 13 hits, 3 runs, 8 walks, and 53 strikeouts. Snell is sporting a 0.73 ERA going all the way back to his last start in May. Facing a formidable Angels offense, he will try to maintain his supremacy.



The AL Wild Card race, which just the Orioles appear keep on dominating, has the Angels starting this series two games behind. If the Angels’ offense can continue to score, the path can be cracked for them to slink in. A team that ranks sixth in runs scored per game is led by Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani. Los Angeles has risen to 4th in slugging percentage and sixth in on-base percentage thanks to walks and home runs. There isn’t much to be unhappy about for Anaheim at the plate, though they could benefit themselves a little more by adopting an aggressive strategy on the bases.


Monday night will mark Jaime Barria’s 6th start and the eighteenth overall game of this season. The righty enters this game with a mere 2-3 record but a 2.92 ERA and 1.18 WHIP. Recently, however, the White Sox brutalized him, scoring 5 earned runs over 3.0 innings on 7 hits and 2 walks. Barria was charged for the 11–5 loss. In the previous 5 matches he’s thrown in, Los Angeles currently sits at 4-1.
