Angels Flying High Against Tigers

It has been a season of inconsistency for the Los Angeles Angels, but a weekday series against the Detroit Tigers could cure what ails them. The Halos have won 10 of the last 11 meetings between the two clubs overall and eight straight at Angels Stadium.

Shark Bites
  • The Angels are 12-4 in their past 16 games that Hector Santiago starts.
  • The OVER is 13-5 in the Tigers’ past 18 games as underdogs.
  • Miguel Cabrera has a lifetime .412 on-base percentage against Hector Santiago.

Hector Santiago is coming off his two worst starts of the season after he failed to make it through the third inning in either outing while allowing 10 combined runs. The entire month of May has seen the lefty struggle to a 6.35 ERA – that number was also decreased greatly by an eight-inning, two-hit outing against the Mariners.

The Tigers will send mediocrity incarnate to the mound when Anibal Sanchez starts Tuesday. The Tigers have dropped each of Sanchez’ past five starts with the righty going 0-4 with a 6.00 ERA while surrendering six home runs in that span.
