Bridwell Has Been The Angels Good Luck Charm

A lot of MLB fans aren’t likely getting up for a Parker Bridwell start but Los Angeles Angels fans know how important the pitcher has been. The 26-year old has posted a solid 3.93 ERA in his past 12 starts and has been a big reason why the Halos have gone 11-1 in those contests. Can Bridwell do it again for the Angels when they continue their weekend series with the Texas Rangers Saturday?

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in 6 of the Rangers' last 8 games on the road against the Angels.
  • The Rangers are 6-2 SU in their last eight games with Cole Hamels as the starting pitcher.
  • Albert Pujols is 18-for-64 with 3 HRs and 17 RBIs vs the Rangers this season.

The Rangers will counter with Cole Hamels who has not been his best recently. The lefty has a 7.17 ERA in his past four starts while allowing opponents to slug .523.  Hamels faced off against the Angels in that span, allowing four runs with eight strikeouts and three walks in 5.0 innings.

The Rangers find themselves slumping at the worst possible time with just one win in their past seven games. These losing ways have dropped the Rangers to five games back in the wild card race and could find themselves out of the postseason without a turnaround. The Halos need to find some consistency if they want to earn a postseason spot with the squad going 3-5 in their past eight.
