LA Angels Meet the Seattle Mariners on ESPN Plus

Seattle Mariners

Angels Playing Catch-up to Surprising Mariners in AL West

The Mariners and the Angels wrap up a pretty significant series tonight. The Los Angeles Angels had big things in mind for 2018. It’s not too late, but we’re already past the halfway point of the regular season. Key injuries have the Halos (44-43, -8.09 betting units) barely above .500.

The Seattle Mariners (55-312, +19.15 betting units) is in 2nd place in the division, 11 games better than the Angels. Game 3 is Thursday night at 10 PM ET on ESPN Plus. If the Angels keep slogging along they will have to make a huge decision. Throw in the towel, or hope for a 2nd half explosion.

Oddsmakers have the Mariners as -132-moneyline favorites. The total is at 9.

The Angels should have pitching/hitting phenom Shohei Ohtani (.907 OPS) back in the lineup by Thursday. He’ll be limited to DH duties after missing most of June with a sprained UCL in his left elbow.

Jaime Barria (5-4, 3.40 ERA) will start the series finale against the Mariners. The 21-year-old Panamanian has gone 0-3 over his last four starts. But he won five of his first six decisions. Barria lost to Seattle on June 12. He served up two homers to Mitch Haniger. He gave up three runs, two earned, and eight hits over five innings.

Fellow southpaw Marco Gonzales (3.77 ERA) is due up for Seattle. It has been a charmed season in the Pacific Northwest. The M’s are 26-11 this year in one-run games and 8-0 in extra innings. They’re 11-6 behind Gonzales for 3.98 units in earnings.

The Angels and their woeful bullpen are just 1-7 in extra innings this season.
