On Friday, June 9th AL West rivals, the Los Angeles Angels and the Seattle Mariners will face off for the first game of a three-game series between them at the Angel Stadium of Anaheim. Both teams are rebuilding, but their seasons are taking different paths. Seattle has shown improvement recently with both hitting and pitching performance; now is an ideal time to back them against an opponent that’s struggling at home.
The Los Angeles Angels continue to waste one of the greatest talents ever seen in Shohei Ohtani and have struggled all season with losing games. While their starting lineup and bullpen have produced at times, as has their overall play. At Angel Stadium they’re 18-13 overall; when out-hitting opponents they’ve been 28-5 overall. Los Angeles had won 3 consecutive matches going into Thursday after defeating the Cubs on Wednesday night. With an improved record of 34-30, the Angels are 3rd in the AL West, 8 games behind the Texas Rangers who are leading their division.
For the Angels, Shohei Ohtani will take the mound in this game, marking his 13th start of the year. He currently has a record of 5-2, a ERA of 3.30, a WHIP of 1.01, 29 walks, and 96 strikeouts. He also has the most hit batters and wild pitches in the MLB this season.
After getting trounced by San Diego on the afternoon of Wednesday, Seattle comes to this match having lost 4 of its past 5 matches and 6 of their last 8. On Thursday, the Mariners had a 30-31 record and were 4th in the AL West, ten games below the Rangers who were leading the division. The Mariners seem to be bleeding runs in recent weeks, finishing 1-4 in their last five contests as run line underdogs, and each of their last 3 losses have come by 7 runs or more.
In this game, Mariners pitcher Luis Castillo makes his 13th start of the year on the mound. He enters this game with a record of 4-3 this year, with an ERA of 2.55, a WHIP of 0.976, 16 walks, and 82 strikeouts in 70.2 innings pitched.
