Result: Loss
I'm playing on LA. While the Angels are fairly heavy favorites, given the matchup, I believe that the line could easily be much higher. Bundy is in outstanding form. Last time out, he recorded 12 K's against just one walk, allowing only two runs and four hits, while going 7 1/3 innings. In his previous start, he also went seven innings, again allowing two runs. That time, he struck out eight while walking one. He's allowed two earned runs or less in four straight starts and in six of seven. On the season, through nine starts, he's got a stellar 2.48 ERA and 0.914 WHIP, averaging 6.4 innings per start. Not surprisingly, the Angels have won each of Bundy's last three starts. They provided him with 28 total runs in those games and he should get solid support once again. Smith has only made two starts, one in July and one on 9/11. He went only three innings each time out, walking six in his lone road start. With Smith not likely to last long, we'll see an Arizona bullpen which entered the series with a 5.44 ERA and 1.744 WHIP on the road. Expect Bundy to outpitch and outlast Smith, the Angels winning in convincing fashion.
