The Freeway Series Has Been One-Sided

The battle for baseball supremacy in LA has been less a battle and more of a beating recently. The LA Angels have won eight of the past nine contests against the Dodgers in the Freeway Series. The Halos have outscored the Dodgers 42-24 in that span with all but two of those victories coming by two runs or more.

Shark Bites
  • The Dodgers are 2-7 SU in their past nine game against teams with losing records.
  • The Angels have won their past four games on the road.
  • The UNDER is 15-6 in the past 21 games at Dodgers Stadium.

The Dodgers will try to take it to their rivals when they send Kenta Maeda to the mound Monday. After starting the season red-hot, Maeda has struggled to a 5.09 ERA in his past three outings.

The Angels will send their own struggling pitcher to the mound when Matt Shoemaker will make his second start since being called up from Triple A. Shoemaker – who has a 9.12 ERA in the majors this season – allowed seven hits and four earned runs in just 4.0 innings in his last start against the Cardinals.
