Los Angeles Angels vs Texas Rangers 08/08/2020
Los Angeles Angels
Los Angeles Angels were expected to win their last game against the Rangers, but they failed when they surrendered four and scored three. The Angels seem to be facing issues with their batting squad this season. As a whole team, they are touching a clip of .217. The leading batsman is Mike Trout with four homers and nine RBIs. Trout is holding a batting clip of .306 and he seems to be the bright spot for the Angels. Patrick Sandoval will be delivered to the mound as their starting pitcher in this game. Sandoval has pitched four innings and surrendered one run with four strikeouts this season.
Players to watch: D. Fletcher 3B (GP14, AB55, R9, H18, 2B4, 3B0, HR2, RBI8, TB28, BB9, SO9, SB2, AVG0.327, OBP0.409, SLG0.509, OPS0.918, WAR0), J. Upton LF (GP13, AB46, R3, H5, 2B0, 3B0, HR2, RBI5, TB11, BB4, SO19, SB0, AVG0.109, OBP0.192, SLG0.239, OPS0.431, WAR0).
Texas Rangers received a decent amount of contribution from the plate just to get past the Angels. The Rangers are not too good with their offensive game as they are scoring an average of just 3.2 runs per game. As a whole team, Texas is touching a batting clip of .208. Kolby Allard will be delivered to the mound as their starter in this game. Allard is holding an ERA of 5.81 with just 13 starts in his MLB career. Texas is bound to have issues from the mound with their starter. On the other hand, their bats are not strong enough to support their cause. It’s going to be hard for the Rangers to continue their winning success against the Angels.
