The Oakland Athletics and Los Angeles Angels continue their four game series today. Both teams have taken a game so far in the series with Oakland taking game one by a score of 11-10 and Los Angeles taking the game last night by a score of 5-3. These two teams played each other in the first series of the season that saw the Angels take two of three up in Oakland. Each team is looking to find some consistent momentum and it starts with putting together wins. The AL West division rivals will see much more of each other as the season goes on which makes for a fun matchup.
Date: Wednesday, April 26th, 2023
Time: 9:38 p.m. EST
Location: Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California
Team Records: Oakland Athletics (5-19), Los Angeles Angels (12-12)
Projected Starting Pitchers:
Luis Medina (0-0, 0.00 ERA) vs Patrick Sandoval (1-1, 3.38 ERA)
What to Watch:
Tonight the Oakland Athletics will be sending Luis Medina to the mound. He will be making his major league debut and went 0-0 with a 3.86 ERA in four starts at Triple-A. He was acquired by the Athletics in the trade last trade deadline that sent Frankie Montas to the New York Yankees. The team is hopeful that he can put together a good outing that can help them stay in the game to start.
Los Angeles will be sending out Patrick Sandoval in this one. He has had an up and down season thus far but only suffered his only loss last time out. The team will need him to put together a better outing at home tonight.
Game Prediction: Los Angeles Angels 5, Oakland As 2
I like the Angels to grab this game here behind a strong start from Sandoval and it helps his team grab the big win.
