Total: 9.00 | 103.00 Over
Yesterday's series opener blasted past the posted number in the D-Backs 9-8 victory and I think a similar final combined score is in the cards in the second between these clubs on Wednesday night. The visitors go with Caleb Smith, who is 0-0 with a 3.00 ERA and who gave up one run over three innings in his debut vs. Seattle last week. Smith has always shown promise, but I think the larger workload here isn't going to help his peripherals one bit. Angels starter Dylan Bundy is 5-2 with a 2.48 ERA and he's been one of the lone bright spots for the Angels this season. That said I find it interesting to note that the Angels have seen the total go over the number in ten of their last 16 after allowing nine or more runs in a one run loss to an opponent at home in their previous outing. This number is a little, let's hammer the over!
T.M. Prediction: 10-6 Angels.
