Indians Have Been Steamrolling Angels

The Cleveland Indians have had a pretty easy time when they have faced off against the Los Angeles Angels. The Tribe have won the past nine meetings between the two teams while outscoring the Halos 74-30. In the past nine games between the Indians and Angels, Cleveland has won by at least three runs seven times.

  • The Angels are 3-9 SU in their last 12 games at home with Ricky Nolasco as the starting pitcher.
  • The Indians are 12-0 SU in their last 12 games on the road.
  • Mike Trout is 5-for-6 with 3 XBH in his career vs Josh Tomlin.

The Indians will start Josh Tomlin, who has been effective in his limited time recently. The righty has allowed a combined five earned runs in his past four starts but has not once made it through six innings in that span. Tomlin arguably has the best command in the MLB, as he has allowed just 14 walks in 23 outings this year.

Angels starter Ricky Nolasco is coming off one of his best outings since the all-star break when he registered his first quality start in over a month. The 34-year-old has done a better job keeping balls inside the park but has still surrendered seven home runs in his past eight starts.
