The Los Angeles Angels host the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday in game three of a four-game set.
This is a battle between one team that is in the playoff hunt, and another that isn’t, but there is on obvious discrepancy in style of play between these teams right now, and it doesn’t favor the side you might think.
The Angels entered Tuesday’s play having quietly won nine of their last 10 games, while the Rays are mired in a slump, dropping eight of nine contests, including each of the first four games of their current West Coast swing.
The Angels scored at least five runs in winning seven of eight, while the Rays scored only seven runs in losing five straight.
Jered Weaver gets the nod for the Angels in this one. In his last three starts, Weaver has posted a 2.25 ERA with a 0.95 WHIP.
The Rays counter with Jeremy Hellickson. He’s had a very disappointing year, and has posted an 8.31 ERA with a 2.23 WHIP over his last three outings.
The Rays are 1-5 in Hellickson’s last five starts.
The Angels are 5-0 in their last five games against right-handed starters.
Take Los Angeles.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
