On Friday June 16th, the Los Angeles Angels will play the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium for the first of a three-game series between them.
The Angels just defeated the Texas Rangers in Arlington, winning 3 of the 4 matches they played. On this trip away from home, they will attempt to build on their recent success. The offense continues to be on fire, scoring 24 runs in the series versus Texas, with Ohtani providing a tremendous power show. The Angels are just a single game away from the wildcard spot and have an 8-2 record over their previous 10 matches.
The Angels are playing very well, but some bad news came from their wins. Zach Neto regrettably strained his oblique on Wednesday. Running around the diamond resulted in a hip injury for Gio Urshella. Additionally, a pitch struck Anthony Rendon’s wrist, causing injury. In place of the above 3 infielders, Los Angeles must make use of all of their depth.
With a 3-6 record, a 4.52 ERA, a 1.45 WHIP and 48 strikeouts, the Los Angeles Angels will start Patrick Sandoval. He pitched 5 innings and allowed 10 hits and 5 runs in his most recent outing versus the Seattle Mariners.
The Royals are now 1-11 this month and have dropped their last 9 games. They now want to get out of this rut. This year, the Royals have been unable to get into any form of rhythm. At the bottom of the major leagues, they share the battle with the Oakland A’s. The Orioles dealt them a sweep this past weekend, and the Reds handed them another one this week. They gave up 17 runs in the series, dropping to 1-9 in their past 10 matches.
Brady Singer, who has a 4-5 record, a 6.48 ERA, a 1.59 WHIP and 60 strikeouts, will start for the Royals. He pitched 4.1 innings in his most recent appearance against the Orioles, allowing 6 hits and 4 runs.
