MLB Tips – Los Angeles Angels V Los Angeles Dodgers

12:07 (AEST) @ Angel Stadium, Anaheim

History: Played 121: Angels 67 V Dodgers 54

Last meeting: June 11, 2019: Angels 5 d Dodgers 3 at Angel Stadium

Final Thoughts: Best of the Day sees Crosstown rivals the LA Angels and LA Dodgers square off in the second and final game of their Anaheim-hosted MLB ‘Freeway Series’.

The Angels staged a come-from-behind 5-3 win over the high-flying Dodgers yesterday. Trailing 3-1 after the second inning, the Angels scored two runs at the bottom of the seventh and eighth to snatch victory.

Mike Trout’s two-run homer in the seventh inning tied up the scores. The Angels scored two runs without a hit from Dodgers pitcher Joe Kelly in the eighth.

It was a big result for the 32-35 Angels, who sit fourth in the AL West division.

They had won only two of their previous seven games, including home series losses to the Athletics and Mariners.

Superstar Trout is fourth in the American League for home runs (18) and fifth for RBI (44).

The Dodgers lead the NL West with an equal-league-best 45-22 record.

They have won 13 of their last 17, including three wins by five-plus runs already in June. They won MLB road series against the Diamondbacks and Giants heading into this two-date assignment against the Angels.

Cody Bellinger has the National League’s best batting average (.353). He boasts 20 homers and 54 RBI this season.

Felix Pena (Angels) and Kenta Maeda (Dodgers) will be on the mound in this clash.

Angels with home edge

Neither side has won consecutive MLB games over the other in a series since May 2016. But the Angels have won seven of their last nine against the Dodgers at Angel Stadium.

The Angels took their home series against the Dodgers two games to one last season. The Dodgers won by the same margin at Dodger Stadium.

Expect the Dodgers to bounce back here. Given none of their last 11 games have produced more than nine-run totals, the under looks a good Best of the Day play.
