Tampa Bay Rays at Los Angeles Angels
It's September and the Angeles are now a spoiler. L.A. in their role is doing great. Like a heavy burden suddenly lifted off their shoulders new life has come to this team that had so much expectation at the start of the season and that's all fizzled they are playing to give the contenders a run for their money. The Angels are 64-72 overall, 32-37 at home and double digit off the leader. However the L.A. Angels rolling 9-1 last 10 games, going 8-1 in last away trip. Tonight's starter Jason Vargas is a sleeper with winning home record of 5-1. For pitchers under 136 innings Vargas is money. His wins have come better then 1.5 runs so with Jason as home dog we're talking about reverse runline. The Rays are struggling big time and though they have returning star in Matt Moore to stop the losing streak, but Matt hasn't pitched all August. The Rays are due for a win at some point, but the risk side for the Rays are much higher tonight against a hot team with a good home pitcher. Tampa losers of current road trip at 0-4 overall 2-8 in last 10 games and their bats have gone cold.
