No Angels In The Outfield At Target Field

The Los Angeles Angels find themselves on the verge of being swept by the Minnesota Twins and their recent history doesn’t give them much hope, as the Halos have lost their past six games at Target Field. Those six games, dating back to September 20, 2015, have seen the Twins outscore the Angels 36-20.

Shark Bites
  • Opponents are slugging .548 against Angels pitcher Parker Bridwell this season.
  • The Angels are 11-4 SU in their last 15 games after a loss.
  • The Twins are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games against right-handed starters.

To make matters worse, the Angels will be facing all-star Twins pitcher Ervin Santana. However, Santana has been wildly inconsistent recently after being lights out the first two months of the season. In his past six starts, the right-hander has held opponents scoreless twice but allowed five or more runs in the other four. When Santana is on, he is near untouchable, with a 1.01 ERA in wins this season. But he looks like a dumpster fire when he’s off, compiling a 9.22 ERA in losses.

LA will counter with rookie Parker Bridwell, who has been solid since joining the rotation. The 25-year-old has a 3.95 ERA in his five outings for the big club but has struggled with the long ball, giving up seven home runs in his five starts.
